Of these the first 18 would be built in France and the rest was to be assembled/license built in India. The main discussion point was that India wanted Dassault to be resp...

Note the mechanic performing post f...

Re: Markings on French Airforce Mirage F1CR

Don't you mean speedbrakes? :wink:
euh.... no :)
In the link he refers to the markings and bullet holes. If you look at the second picture, you'll see the holes above the tactical code 118-NC. These are for the stairs.

Greetings, Paul


Skyhawks stopped flying in the last quarter of 2012.

Re: Syrian Operation

Not to start a very long discussion here, but doesn't this thread belong in the Tattle lounge ?

There's not a single news related fact in this post, it's just guessing about the possible events that will follow in the coming days/ weeks...

Re: Base visit Wittmund 16-08-2013

Nice set and thanks for sharing !
Next time use a lager lens and look around you.
How does that work? Is that a lens sponsored by Heineken or Carlsberg?
