Dassaul Mirage IIIA “01”: Just Because (XX).

The “01” was the first French aircraft to surpass officially Mach 2 in May 12, 1958. This historic Delta is preserved in the Musée de l’Air et l’Espace, Le Bourget (Paris). Natural metal,  slim radar-less” nose and not equipped with draggy wind pylons. Purity in essence.

Yep, still under the spell of the Mirage III’s jubilé. This aircraft means a lot to me.
