Libyan Air Force Mirage F1- Malta 3rd Feb.

Post by quail »

Libyan Air Force Mirage F1, serial 508, is one of the two Mirage F1s which defected to Malta almost a year ago during the Libyan uprising, seen here in Malta yesterday being positioned for checks and engine runs. Both aircraft are kept at Medavia hangar in Safi. Note Libyan Air Force new markings.

Managed to shoot them both in September last year but still in the old markings.
I am surprised that there are no one in the cockpit manning the brakes, hate to think what might happen if the Mirage jumped the tow bar.
Great pictures :clap: :clap:
