Cockpit footage from Rafale over Mali

The French Ministry of Defense has been releasing some really interesting footage of French forces in action in Mali.

On Feb. 15 cockpit footage of a Rafale taking off and what appears to be a backseater in a two seat Rafale searching for targets using a targeting pod was released.

The footage finishes with two Rafale taking on fuel from a US Air Force KC-135 of the 100th Air Refueling Wing, normally based at RAF Mildenhall (UK) but are operating out of Moron airbase Spain.
