Armee de l'Air draws first blood over Libya

Late Saturday evening, the Armee de l'Air (French Air Force) became the first coalition air force to drop live weapons in enforcement of the Libyan no-fly zone when its Mirage 2000s dropped precision guided weapons on tanks of the Libyan government threatening rebel-held Benghazi. According to the French, Rafales also flew reconnaissance missions and CAP over Libya.
