The pride of the French Air Force

France, as part of its China charm offensive, have sent some of their air force to Hong Kong. They put on a display yesterday of their very best, the pride of one of the world's best air forces. Unfortunately the gyroscope wasn't working properly*...

Yup... Everything this side of the equator is upside down, back to front and generally backwards- I mean having Christmas in the middle of winter, for crying out loud! Puts a bit of a damper on the barbeque, and it's kinda hard to go surfing when the ocean's frozen. For once the French have got it right and he's flying right-side-up by the true (Southern Hemisphere) standard.
