Home of the Dassault Mirage 2000D, BA133

Hey guys,

Last year I visited airbase Nancy-Ochey in France to do a photohoot and capture the mighty mirage 2000. In my opinion a beautiful designed aircraft from the French aircraft manufacturer Dassault. I tried to capture my love for this aircraft and the people from this base were very helpfull fullfilling this idea. Luckely the mirage is still going strong till 2030 within de Armée de L'air since it had an MLU (MidLifeUpdate). This update consists primarily to the avionics and weapons systems (gun pod and newer MBDA MICA IR missile for self-defence). Hope you enjoy!

Cheers,
Reinier

I'm astounded that no one has replied to this thread yet! 2 and 3 are absolutely stunning, and I've seen on Flickr that you got some other belters from that shoot! Excellent work from an opportunity that we can only dream of - oh how I love Les Deux Mille :love:

Agree completely with Pringles - some stunning shots there!! (And the shock that no-one had taken the time to comment...).

Thanks for sharing them with us :-)
