17 April 2021 - Here are a few more AI Mirage aircraft by Mike Pearson that Henk Schuitemaker has converted for use in Prepar3D v4.  This group are all manufactured by Israil Aircraft Industries and include the Nesher, Dagger (late model), and the Kfir.

10 April 2021 - Henk Schuitemaker has been working on updating the AI Mirage series by Mike Pearson for use in Prepar3D v4.  The series was originally developed for use by Military AI Works about a decade ago and therefore only intended for FS2004.  There are so many types in the series that I am going to break it down into a couple of installments.  Lets start with the Mirage III, Mirage IV, and Mirage 5.

3 April 2021 - L'iguane has given us two new Mirage 2000 textures to go with his update of the FS2004 Mirage 2000N "Basic" package by Roland Laborie and Johnathan Hillaire.  The first scheme is of a Mirage 2000DP of Escuadrón Caza-Bombardeo 412 "Halcones" of the Fuerza Aérea del Perú.  The second is of a Mirage 2000D of the Direction Générale de l'Armement - Essais en Vol at BA 120 Cazaux (LFBC).  Both packages require the first Mirage 2000B update package from L'iguane.

27 March 2021 - Mark (Tranquil) Beale has released a 2-Pack of Mirage 2000 textures for the new AI Mirage 2000 package by Henk Schuitemaker/MAIW.  Included are a Mirage 2000C of EC 1/12 'Cambresis' in markings worn at the 2003 Tiger Meet at BA 103 Cambrai-Epinoy (LFQI) and a Mirage 2000-5F of EC 1/2 'Cigognes' from BA 116 Luxeuil Saint-Sauveur (LFSX) in a scheme to honor the 100 Years Anniversary of the death of Captain Georges Guynemer in 2017.

20 March 2021 - L'iguane has continued with his FS2004 updates to the Mirage 2000N "Basic" package by Roland Laborie and Johnathan Hillaire.  This time with a Mirage 2000D scheme for EC 3/11 'Corse' based in Djibouti.  The package also includes a new MDL file.  The second package is a set of textures for a Mirage 2000D of the ECE 1/30 'Côte d'Argent' Experimentation squadron at the 2019 NATO Tiger Meet held at BA 118 Mont-de-Marsan.  This second package required the MDL file from the EC 3/11 'Corse' package.  Both packages require the first Mirage 2000B package from L'iguane earlier this month.

13 March 2021 - Here is another repaint by Mark (Tranquil) Beale.  This one is for the Rafale AI by Nick Black/MAIW.  This scheme is for one of two Rafale C of EC 1/7 'Provence' painted to celebrate the 10 years of presence of the Armée d'la Aire at BA 104 Al Dhafra in the United Arab Emirates.

8 March 2021 - L'iguane has painted a second texture for his FS2004 update to the Mirage 2000N "Basic" package by Roland Laborie and Johnathan Hillaire.  This one is the Mirage 2000B-01 Prototype scheme.  This series of repaints will all require his first Mirage 2000B upgrade package installed on top of the original package mentioned above.

4 March 2021 - L'iguane has been working on a series of updates (custom MDLs and effects) and repaints for the FS2004 Mirage 2000N "Basic" package by Roland Laborie and Johnathan Hillaire.  The first is a Mirage 2000B of EC 2/2 Côte d'Or.  This series of repaints will all require this first Mirage 2000B upgrade package on top of the original package mentioned above.

26 February 2021 - Henk Schuitemaker has created a new series of AI models of the Mirage 2000 for use in 64-bit Prepar3d v4 and v5.  This package includes the Mirage 2000B, C, 5F, D and N in 28 differently configured models and 103 paints.  They represent aircraft in service with the French Armée de l'Air from the 1980's to the present.  Also included are basic flight plans and airbase scenery for six French Armée de l'Air bases.

21 February 2021 - Here is another repaint by Mark (Tranquil) Beale.  This one is for the Rafale AI by Nick Black/MAIW.  The scheme is for a Rafale M and wears special markings to commemorate the 100 years of aircraft carrier takeoff/landings by the French Aéronavale in 2020.  The unit represented is the Centre d'Expérimentations Pratiques de l'Aéronautique Navale (Naval Aviation Trials Center, CEPA) based at BAN Hyères (LFTH).

8 February 2021 - Mark (Tranquil) Beale has painted a few new schemes for Mirage and Rafale aircraft.  This first one is a special scheme applied to a former Belgium Air Force Mirage 5BD.  The aircraft is now maintained by the Mirage 5 BD09 Restoration Group.  The scheme commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Mirage 5 in Belgium Air Force service in 2020.

29 January 2021 - While trolling Simviation.com for anything new and Mirage related I came across an FSX panel from a decade ago for the Super Étendard Modernisé I had not seen before.  This panel by Jean-Luc Peters is a widescreen version of the earlier modifications he made to the panel by Danny Garnier.  A separate patch file released two years later fixes an issue with outside views from the cockpit.

17 January 2021 - SkyDesigners have updated another of their French airbase sceneries for use with MSFS.  This time they have made BAN Landivisiau (LFRJ) as it appeared in the 2010s with the Super Étendard Modernisé, Rafale M, and Falcon 10 Mer.

9 January 2021 - SkyDesigners have begun to update their French airbase sceneries for use with MSFS.  Things tend to look very good in the new sim anyway and these sceneries are no exception.  The first two are BA 102 Dijon-Longvic (LFSD) and BA 112 Reims-Champagne (LFSR).

3 January 2021 - Let's start off the new year with some new paint.  L'iguane has given us another repaint for the Mirage F1 by Kirk Olsson.  This repaint is of a Mirage F1CR of ER 2/33 'Savoie' of the Armée de l'Air while deployed to N'djamena Intl Airport (FTTJ) in Chad, Africa in 1987.  The unique part of this desert camo scheme is the sharksmouth on the nose of the aircraft.

    1 January 2021 - Best Wishes and Happy New Year to All!
