After the Ouragan, complete your collection of paper airplanes with the latest origami made: the Mirage F1!
Since mid-1964 Marcel Dassault, aware of the impasse where large-engined aircraft, too expensive for export, had discreetly had a small bisonic aircraft studied by his company. A prototype capable of being used by the French Air Force was named Mirage F1.
The first flight of the No. 1 production aircraft took place at Mérignac on 15 February 1973 in the hands of Guy Mitaux-Maurouard. It was delivered to the French Air Force on 14 March 1974 and paved the way for several versions.
From the outset the Mirage F1 was an export success. Four hundred and seventy-three examples were delivered to the air forces of South Africa, Spain, Greece, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Ecuador, Iraq, Jordan and Qatar.
