Some reports of a collision of a pair of French Air Force Dassault Rafale aircraft at a display at Cognac.
Both aircraft seem to have landed safely, but some wreckage hit a nearby house.

I can`t find anymore information at present, but if I do I will update.

Found this, looks like a missile wingtip pylon

A little more detail but still no pictures.

"During their tactical presentation, two Rafales from the 30th Fighter Wing touched each other in-flight," said Colonel Nicolas Lyautey, commander of the 709 Cognac-Ch√Ęteaubernard airbase where the air show was taking place. "One of them lost a piece of its tail fin, which damaged the roof of a house during its fall."

What's the point of an open door policy if inside the open door sits a closed mind?

Correction on photo, it it the tip of the tail shown.

Rafail! The pilots must have been on the Cognac!

I'll let myself out.
A million great ideas...
