Recommended reading is "Mirage F1" by Michel Liebert and Sébastien Buyck,
Éditions Lela Presse. Two volumes, the first one dealing with development and
variants, the second one mainly with the service history. Not quite cheap, but
a good source about this aircraft.

Made a quick search and, well, seems not that easy, the usual sources all saying "not
available in the moment". So you may have to look for the second hand market, sorry.

Volume 1 indeed has a 3 view of the Mirage F1 prototype as it first flew (front, side & top). Same for the Mirage F2.

Thanks so much, this is beautiful, in my humble opinion ,This is the most beatiful plane , I enjoy the collecting images and projection planes of family Mirage, especially looking forward designs where we can see the collective heritage of simplicity, but subtile aerodynamic lines, the planes resulting in a series of one to other project , as Mirage F1, F2, and F3 with sweptwings, and of course the Mirage III with delta wings. Particularly interesting are the planes of the series Mirage G, with variable geometry wings. When gradually put the images and schematic view, in line, we gets the full review, into the ease design and visual beauty of each airplane with a finely implemented new solutions and ideas in accordance with the new requirements

Thank you all, forthis wonderfulforum
Greetings

I think the first pic you posted with the 3-views shows pre-prod aircraft 02, not prototype 01. The antennas on each side of the fin weren't there on 01 and the shape of the fin itself looks like the definitive one as used on 02/03/04. And now that I've opened the book from Lela Presse, it's indeed Mirage F1 02 just before its first flight.

While the Mirage F1 looks stunning (particularly without the ugly IFR probe) I can't look at photos of the first prototype without a pinch to the heart.
It flew on December 23, 1966 yet only six months later, on May 19, 1967 that bastard lost its horizontal tail to flutter and slammed into the ground, killing Dassault chief test pilot René Bigand.
In a sense, I prefer to think the Mirage F1 real story started afterward, with prototypes 02, 03 and 04 that looks better on the pictures above...
