Hi,

With articles out and published, time to share some pictures! We visited all bases in Jordan in November, I'll start with some pictures of their training base, Mafraq:

Nice! Did you see some F-5's also? Different base i think? And did you went to Al-Azraq as well?

You must be too young to remember! Jordanian Aviojet on static at IAT in 1989 and one flew at TVS Show at Boscombe Down the following year, last time the gorgeous Mirage F1s appeared (on static) as well. :sad:

Very nice stuff particularly the Aviojets and the red/white Firefly. :up:

Awesome!! Too bad for Al Azraq. You were there on a "sunday"? Great to see that line of Tigers though!
