I’m told this is what that Rafale looks like now.

Les deux avions basés à la 4e escadre de la base aérienne 113 Saint-Dizier-Robinson (Haute-Marne)
étaient partis de la base d’Orange, à environ 160 kilomètres de là.

L’Armée de l’Air et de l’Espace a déploré un « incident rarissime » auprès du quotidien.
« Il n’y a pas eu de victime.
Cet incident en vol a obligé le pilote de l’aéronef à se poser sans encombre à 14h11 » à la base d’Orange,
a expliqué l’armée de l’Air à La Provence.

...in hindsight,
perhaps you should make that co-pilot/navigator/WSO....

Another shot has emerged of the damaged French Rafale,
which severed a high-voltage power line on a low-altitude flight on Thursday.

The pilot and back-seater won the lottery.
Just inches from a canopy impact by the live wire.
