Aerobatic display abandoned at show

A display by the French aerobatic display team at the Royal International Air Tattoo was stopped after a technical emergency.

It is after one of the Dassault-Dornier Alpha jets flown by the Patrouille de France team had technical problems.

A technical emergency was declared and fire engines were deployed when the aircraft landed. No action was needed.

The team was due to fly to Paris afterwards, to perform a flyover at the end of the Tour-de-France.
