A film by Stéphane Dugast. Production: Beta Prod, TV Rennes 35. France – 52’ – 2011.

A training-vessel, a floating embassy, an operations building, all along its career the helicopter carrier R97 has become a very familiar vessel for many of us. However, by the end of May 2012, after almost 50 years off aithful service, the well-named “old lady” , must retire. A symbol of France’s naval heritage is going to disappear. Its last voyage is a vibrant tribute to this legendary vessel.
