hayder كتب:an Iraqi Mirage F1 BQ-6 in France in September 2010!
This is one of Iraqi Mirages that was embargoed in 1990, and never delivered.
Last year it was taken out of storage and is now to be seen in one of aviation museums in western France.
raaft كتب:THE serial no 4014 downed 14 iranian aircraft is that true
i hear this information from techincian
There is some discussion regarding this issue. For example, there are photos of this plane (see above), showing it with 14 kill markings. The pilot (he was Deputy CO No.79 Squadron at the time), indeed claimed 14 kills against Iranians. His son said that the IrAF credited him with 12 kills.
However, other Iraqi sources deny this, and stress the IrAF confirmed only 2 of these 14 claims to the pilot in question. Furthermore, official IrAF documentation mentions not a single IrAF pilot that achieved the "ace" status (5 kills). Only one MiG-21-pilot that scored 4 confirmed kills (he flew MiG-21bis, early during the war, and shot down 4 F-5Es in two air combats).
