Hi everyone! The Mirage F-1 "ΤΑΛΩΣ" (Talos) was a commemorative and very charming scheme applied to HAF's Mirage F-1 s/n 129 sometime around 2000 or tad later, if memory serves... In Greek mythology, Talos was a giant [...]

Mirage F.1CG Walkaround

Hi everyone! Here are a few mostly close-up shots of two HAF Mirage F.1CGs. The HAF Mirage F.1CGs equipped the 342 and 334 All Weather Squadrons. A peculiarity of the HAF F.1CG was that they used the American Sidewinder air-to-air missile. [...]

Waco CG-4 glider on display at Cradle of Aviation museum.

T-41 Mescalero Walk Around

The subject of these photos is probably a little obscure, but there have been a couple of T-41 models from Minicraft, PM, and others. My wife was a military instructor pilot who was assigned from 1986 to 1990 at Hondo Airfield just west [...]
