Did a search, couldn't find anything.

Mystery drones breach airspace above French nuclear sites.

Unidentified drones big enough to carry explosives have flown over as many as seven nuclear power plants around France in the past three weeks, it has emerged.
Sparking fears that the country’s reactors are unsafe from airborne attack, none of the drones were intercepted and their origins remain a mystery.
It is forbidden to enter airspace within a five kilometre perimeter around nuclear sites or to fly over them at an altitude of below 1,000 metres.

Pilotless aircraft flew over seven of the EDF-owned plants in the period between October 5 and 20, the state company’s spokeswoman told reporters on Thursday.

France is the world’s most nuclear-reliant country, with 58 reactors on 19 separate sites, operated by the state company.

“There’s a judicial investigation under way, measures are being taken to know what these drones are and neutralise them,” Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told France Info radio on Thursday, without specifying the measures.

Couldn't find a photo or info in the drones in question...

Or just hobbyist protesters f***kin with authorities. I heard something about this in the states over ball games.

Not that astrodomes are any more vulnerable than nuclear reactor domes, but seems this hobby thing is taking drone surveillance to new civilian heights.

"The overflights in question took place sometimes on the same day at four sites which are far apart from each other,
at Bugey, Gravelines, Chooz and Nogent-sur-Seine on 19 October - which proves it's a large-scale operation.

Or it's just someone pointing friendly at a security gap. Nothing happened, so now the French government knows what they got to work on, if they don't want to leave the backdoor open for the upcoming war with Russia.

There was talk in another thread that a black project aircraft had been positioned over seas for some tests, maybe this is linked to that.

Sorry guys. That was ours. We thought we saw Assad hanging around the nuclear plant.

What if the US are sending drones to bring the "shock and awe of democracy?"

And it continues...

French authorities said on Friday they had detected drones over two nuclear power plants, the latest in a baffling series of incidents across the country.

A spokesman for security forces said: “Drone-type machines overflew two nuclear plants during the night. They were detected by police in charge of protecting the plants and staff.”

“These machines were not neutralised because they did not represent a direct threat” to the nuclear facilities, the spokesman added.

National energy company EDF said on Wednesday it had identified seven drones flying over its plants this month and had filed a complaint with the police.

A spokeswoman for EDF confirmed the latest incident, which she said happened around 9pm local time over plants at Penly in northern France and Golfech in the southwest.

An enquiry has been launched, with a source close to the probe saying they were trying to find the pilot of the remote-controlled drones.

The drone flights have sparked questions over the security of nuclear plants in France. The country relies heavily on nuclear energy for electricity.

The interior ministry has stressed that a drone does not pose any concern for the plants which are “designed to withstand a strong earthquake or an airliner crashing into it”.

It is against French law to fly within a five-kilometre (three-mile) radius of a nuclear plant. Those breaking this law are liable to one year in prison and a fine of €75,000 (£59,000).

Apparently five power plants were "visited" by drones yesterday, not two.


Five nuclear plants were overflown Friday night (October 31) from 19 pm to midnight, by drones. Among them Penly in Seine-Maritime.

Penly (Seine-Maritime), Flamanville (Manche), Saint-Laurent-des-Eaux (Loir-et-Cher), Dampierre-en-Burly (Loiret) and Fessenheim (Haut-Rhin) were each overflown in the evening, the sources said.
Protection service of the site and the police confirmed this information. EDF will file a complaint Monday.
