Patrouille Dijon

France
Patrouille Dijon Morane-Saulnier MS 225

The "Patrouille Dijon" was another French Air Force aerobatic display team.

In 1934 in Dijon, a Captain Weiser had established an aerobatic team, which some sources name as "Patrouille Dijon" after the location. Other sources list this same team as "Patrouille Weiser" after the team leader's name.

The Patrouille Dijon aerobatic team flew both Morane-Saulnier 225 and Spad 510 aircraft, eventually reaching a total number of eighteen planes. A specialty of this team was that, during a demonstration, two of the aircraft would fly their routine while tied together with ropes. This "feature demonstration" brought the team huge popularity and public acclaim.
