Mirage F1CR: 50 Years Young.

The F1 celebrated its half century last December 23; hard to assume that with its slick purposeful shape.

One of the pair of CR’s engaged in reconnaissance operations over Libya that made an emergency landing (low on fuel) at Malta Intl. airport, April 2011. Gorgeous reddish afterbuner flames. The Atar 9K-50, sadly, was/is the Achilles’ heel of the F1: fiable and durable yes, but definitely weak in power.
