    France is among the few countries in the Western world to organize military parades of this scale every years in the capital.
    Several other parades (of a smaller scale) were also held in other French cities.

    Some datas :

    63 aircrafts : 49 from the French Air Force,6 from the French Navy and 8 from the US Air Force.
    3,720 troops.
    211 vehicles including 62 motorcycles . 241 horses
    29 helicopters : 17 from the Army,5 from the Air Force,3 from the Navy,3 from the Gendarmerie and 1 from the Civil Security.



    US troops were stunning.

    For the closing animation of the parade,the army band, composed of several bodies, decided to play a small medley of the famous French electronic music group, Daft Punk, before resuming with "C'est la fĂȘte" of Michel Fugain. ;-)
