The getaway helicopter was later found burnt, by local police, in the nearby Parisian suburb of Gonesse, next to the Charles de Gaulle International Airport.
The helicopter that extracted Faid yesterday flew right across the Paris region from the jail to the south-east of the capital, before being dumped not far from Charles de Gaulle airport to the north-east of the city.
Dressed all in black, two men wearing balaclavas and police armbands got off the chopper and entered the prison to look for Faid. The passenger it sought was a 46-year-old gangster named Redoine Faid, who had been serving a 25-year sentence at the prison for armed robbery and murder.
His fame has increased since then following appearances in several television shows and authoring books recounting his past and rise as a criminal in Paris' tough suburbs.
Three armed accomplices were involved in the escape and hacked through a lock that gave them access to a hallway where Fair was waiting with his brothers, Agence France-Presse reported, citing sources close to the case.
Delabroye, the prison union rep, said the yard where the helicopter landed is the only area not equipped with anti-aircraft netting because inmates never use it - "except to leave the prison". He took families, couples and once a police officer hostage during the years-long spree, according to the Telegraph.
GOP Compromise Immigration Bill Fails In House
Several House conservatives left a closed-door meeting of Republicans early on Tuesday expressing discontent with the broad bill. That was defeated 230-190, with Republicans calling it a distraction from the bigger debate over illegal immigration.
According to news channel BFM-TV, the breakout was orchestrated as Faid was in the prison's visiting room at about 11.30am local time.
He spent years as an worldwide fugitive before his capture, and then a decade in prison, and then wrote an autobiography after his release on parole in 2009. Faid and his accomplices are believed to have ditched the airplane and escaped by auto. Investigators were questioning Faid's brother on Sunday afternoon. He was arrested at a hotel six weeks later.
Faid fled on Sunday with three accomplices, according to the sources. Faïd said he was inspired by American films such as Scarface and Heat.
Redoine Faid was in prison for armed robbery.
Prior to the 2013 escape, Faid had been released from a previous stint of a decade behind bars after convincing parole officials that he regretted his criminal past and was determined to start afresh.
