These are the less-known Mirages. When I say less-knwon, I mean there's NOTHING on the web.
Some questions
- Flight test program of the Mirage F-2, late 60's
- Where is the Mirage F-2 prototype? scrapped or waiting somewhere in France?
- Apparently the F-2 interested Israel. Any details about the contacts? (circa 1965)
- I heard some Mirage F-3 (single-seat interceptor variant) were in construction when the F-1 was elected in may 1967.

In brief : every data, picure, drawings about these two planes would be very interesting

Hi I recently get this book.
"Le Mirage F1 Vol.1 Les Profils Avions No12/Editions Lela Press (www.avions-bateaux.com)"
This book contains very detailed Mirage F2 three-view drawings and many other unknown Mirage.
Also F3 mock-up pictures are included. Very fascinating book!

It's just inside the gate at the CEAT testing establishment in Toulouse.

Yes it is. I even find it on Google Earth ! ;D

The CEAT (or at least the Mirage F2) is not exactly in Toulouse, rather in a suburb called Balma (sounds russian to me!)

We need a petition to preserve this aircraft and send it at Le Bourget museum...

The first picture is new to me. Looks like it had been taken at an airshow... Le Bourget maybe, 1967 or 1969 ?

P.S We need upgrade to Prototypes.com ;)

Yes, the first photo was taken at "Le Bourget" airshow !
For "Prototype.com" web site, it is paused because I have no time and motivation to continue. It is a huge job to make a site like this...
I apologize for my poor English ...
