UAEAF Mirage 2000-9EAD/DAD

Mirage 2000’s may be one of the most beautiful and agile aircraft for me. My love affair with these aircrafts started when I fist made a paper model of these flying machines years back when I was in collage.

The Dassault Mirage 2000 is a French multirole, single-engine fourth-generation jet fighter manufactured by Dassault Aviation. It was designed in the late 1970s as a lightweight fighter based on the Mirage III for the French Air Force.

In the past during their performance in Al Ain air show i have photographed them. This year there will be a solo display with Capt. Pilot Masoud Al Falahi, which I am looking forward to.
