As the french carrier vessel "Clemenceau" (R98) is coming back home, a red alert is set up : an unidentified flying object with high level of radio-activity is high over stratosphere. Is it russian ? Or american ? perhaps chinese ? Could it be extra-terrestrial ?

The red warload is supposedly a nuclear bomb. Only the Etendard successor, the Super Etendard, was nuclear capable.

Dassault Etendard IVM s/n 60.

Dassault Etendard IVP

Dedicated variant to reconnaissance tasks (21 built with serial from 101 to 121; higher numbers are former IVM retooled during the nineties).
