  Flag Cheetah C (Vlaggie)
  South Africa Air Force

Leigh Jackson of South Africa is a long time fan of Mirage and Cheetah aircraft in service with the South Africa Air Force.  He previously shared his images of the two special Mirage F1, a Cheetah C in active duty colors and another special Cheetah known as Spotty.  He has provided the photos below of Cheetah C no. 370.  The aircraft is operational with 2 Squadron (Flying Cheetahs), is still painted in this color scheme, and retains it's multi-role capability.  The aircraft is usually referred to as "Vlaggie", the Afrikaans word for "small flag".  Click images for a larger view.
