Have a blast

The selection of the Dassault’s Rafale for direct talks for induction into the Indian Air Force as the medium multi-role combat aircraft gives us one more opportunity to learn a new French word.

Rafale in French means gust or blast, and is generally associated with the phrase rafale de vent (= gust of wind). [Hear Dassault Rafale, vent]

I am sure the engineers at Dassault are celebrating. Have a blast!
