>> July 14: the fireworks in Paris “finalized two hours before the show, it’s a bit like 24 Hours Chrono”, according to its scenographer
To talk about it, the show hands its microphone to Captain Youness Amara, pilot of the Patrouille de France who will fly over the Champs-Elysées tomorrow during the 14-July parade. He answers questions from CM2 students at the Louise Michel school in Vigneux-sur-Seine in the Paris region.
To open the show, Raphaël asks the guest: “How do you prepare before doing acrobatics in the sky?”. Adam wonders if during the loops in the air, the pilot has “already vomited” or had “dizzy”. Fosseyni and Kenny want to know how the pilot “made to get the smoke out of the plane” and whether the pilot’s plane has weapons. Finally, “Have you ever broken the sound barrier?” finally asks Clement.
