MIRAGE F1 : "JE SUIS VENU TE DIRE QUE JE M'EN VAIS..."



Fox One, C'est fini !!!

This beauty will not fly anymore. After being removed from several French squadrons those last few years, the last of the F1 family (from Savoie's Recce squadron), is going for good as well...
Enjoy this amazing and moving tribute to those beautiful beasts (4 variants in the video : F1C, F1B, F1CT and F1CR) realized by the French Air Force (Armée de l'Air).

More stunning pictures from the Savoie's squadron and the "big day" at Mont-de Marsan : click here



My handsome F1,
You were my favorite and you have a place of choice in my blog
Plane charming, you welcomed aviatrix for their debut...
And I always think, handsome F1 that the length of your nose had definitely changed the face of the world...
Bon vent l'artiste !!!
