A video clip posted on a French video sharing site of a Boeing KC-135 tanker flying at around 10ft (3m) altitude over a patch of desert has caused confusion over the location of its filming (below).

The clip, uploaded by user James93 at the Amateur Aviation section of Dailymotion.com  puports to show a desert in France on 22 November 2006, with a Stratotanker flying at levels so low, it has attracted sever criticism on aviation enthusiast web forums.

However, metropolitan France has no true deserts, although the French air force has test facilities in the island of Corsica, North Africa and Dijbouti.
