Very interesting. Since Algeria banned the overflight of French military aircraft, the France-Central Africa routes have lengthened considerably. Today it seems that something has changed. For the first time, a French military plane flew over Libya to go to Central Africa.
This French Air Force Airbus A330 (reg. F-UJCJ – callsign CTM1047) departed Istres AB is in flight to Central Africa using the shortest route overflying Libya.
