  1. Yes, that's correct and as you say its great to see some more DB605 powered machines flying Here's some info from Pete's link: WNF produced G-6, flown by Lt Schulte, crashed on May 29th 1944 near Melk/Austria. The wreck was recovered and the Austrian Michael Rinner started to restore it in 2007. In 2013, the project was bought by Air Fighter Academy in Zirchow/Germany and the restoration was fully finished (I think) in 2017.
  2. Gives me goosebumps listening to the Daimler Benz engine:
  3. Hi Jure, Glad you enjoyed the link and like you I am amazed that they continue to keep their Mirages airworthy for so long. I read that they have produced Mirages themselves under license so perhaps have a supply of spare parts. Delays in introducing the JF-17 has meant keeping the Mirages for longer than anticipated.
  4. Some excellent pics of Pakistani Mirages in various stages of overhaul: https://www.dawn.com/news/1404605
