Leigh Jackson, IT Co-ordination/Assistant Photographer for
Habitat Magazine in South Africa, is also a long time fan of Mirage aircraft and offered to share some
of his images taken at various events and air shows in South Africa. For this first installment I've
selected two special Mirage F1AZ. Images 1 - 7 are of F1AZ No 216, the Super Mirage F1AZ, powered by
the Russian RD-33 Klimov engine with its distinctive exhaust nozzle. This same engine is used by the
MiG-29. Images 8 - 12 (and above) are of F1AZ No 233 in a special scheme applied for the filming of
a television commercial for CitroŽn Automobiles. Click images for a larger view.
