Tall Ship The Hermione, the authentic replica of the 18th century ship the Marquis de Lafayette, makes the ideal subject for this aerial video shot by Nautimages during the replica's stopover in Brest, four months ago.

The French 12-pounder frigate Hermione was famous for her support of America during the Revolutionary War. She sailed to the America’s with news of full French support for the cause.

Her 1997-built replica is famous for being a gorgeously-built copy of an archetypal combatant during the Age of Sail.

Last year, the replica lead a Parade of private and commercial ships up the Hudson River on July 4th. More on her here
