No Ben that Mirage won't fly anymore.
A lot of parts are removed because of radiation. The material is replaced by aluminium. (the plate on the nosewheel and the airbrakes for example.)
Also the ejection seat is disabled. But they can still do some taxi tests.
They tried 10th april, it was exact on that date, 50 yrs ago that the first Mirage landed on Stans.
But something went wrong with the motor of teh R-2109, they try to fix it again!

Hi!,

Just a curious question..... from where is that EC635 at Emmen photographed? the parking lot at the Pilotenschule, underneath the tower perhaps?
Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Niels

At Niels,

the EC-635 pictures from me were indeed taken from the parkinglot underneath the tower.
I saw (Menno/Jutter) walking trough the wet fields a bit more (200 mtrs) to the right (towards the preserved Hunter)
