Baltic Air Policing Mirage 2000
A very cool little video of French Air Force Mirage 2000's of the NATO Baltic Air Policing mission. This really is a sweet little aircraft and much, much smaller than you actually think it is, especially when you put a 1/600th scale model next to a stonking great Su27 or F15. There's a really nice shot of a vertical climb about two thirds of the way through, which shows off the lines of this beautiful little aircraft really well. It's just a shame they had to attach those enormous fuel pods under each wing and that awkward looking refuelling probe! Anyway, I have a pair of these and may just add a couple more to create a full-on flight for the Flashpoint Baltic: Target Locked On project. Zut Alors!
