    Nice video! Thank you for sharing! Look what I found in one of my aircraft magazines yesterday, a photo from 1993 with title "Meeting of the Generations" Czech Mig 21, 29 and French Mirage 2000...



    I want to visit France as soon as possible, perhaps when I finish school, probably I will take some French lessons after finishing school because learning to school and learing French at the same time isn't easy for me. "Mon francais n'est pas tres bien" I'm not even sure if it is right... I will be happy when my French will be at least so good as my English, French and Slovak langage have lot of common things, tu and vous for example... also we use "chauffeur" as slang for driver and lot of other things. I will finish school in 2014, so let's say that I will maybe get there in 2015 or 2016. I hope that we will meet one day, we have a lot of things to talk about

    Most pictures are from "LK" magazine. (LK-Letectví a kozmonautika "Aviation and cosmonautics". The "HPM" stands for "History of plastic models"... there is lot of interesting pictures in these magazines, they belong to my father, he have a lot of more, and they are mostly from late 80s and 90s, my father also have few French magazines about plastic models, and I also have one magazine full of Mirage 2000 pics, all details, well my father collected really great stuff in the years, he works as plastic model "designer" ... he is making plastic model from nothing... now he is working on airfields equipment from fire extinguishers to aircraft tractors, here is examle of his work: this is Czechoslovakian self-propelled anti-aircraft gun from 50s... he started with nothing and look what he made ... it was produced in small numbers by him, I think that now some Czech company is still making it, but Im not sure. If you will tap "IR hobby" into google you will find father's work... "IR- Ivan Repček" "Repček" is my surname. He still have one builded at home, alongside with lot of other models

    I don't know much about milatry aircraft as in whats the the best of the best but I do remember having hours, upon hours of fun with "Desert Strike" on the Sega console back in the day and I've always thought the Stealth Bomber was awesome in design.



    I find this Aurora thing quite interesting too.

    Perfect video! Thank you! Haha, terrorist are getting their ass kicked onece again Everything what these Al-Quaeda idiots can do is hide like rats in their holes... but when they come out... you need just few aircrafts and they start to crawl back. I hope that one day I will see all terrorist from Afghanistan, Mali, Chechenya and many other countries destroyed, there is no other option... just to kill them all! They should not try to mess with superpowers like France, UK, USA, Russia or India... because they will always lose. I will watch more videos from Mali.

    I agree with you, if pacifying them does not work , neutralization will be the only option... :/

    But there's not only france , i've heard that the Slovakian army is also fighting the taliban terrorist in Afghanistan, this is really good to see all european countries participating in the struggle to save our civilization !

    Here is some more



    And here a very good video of the french air force squadron on board our aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle ^^

    Imagine flying like this while listening to A contre-courant... It's good to see also a historic footage of F-8 Crusaders! Did you know that originally legendary F-4 Phantom was about to be used on French aircraft carriers but it was too big or something like that so they choosed F-8s, and these F-8 also was little bit changed from version that was used by US Navy to fit French carriers... (I read it on wikipedia).

    I don't know the exact story but it think it was something like that. Actually if france chose to buy fighters from the US at the time it's because we needed new planes while we were waiting for our Etendard IV (the ancestor of the Super Etendard



    And the successor to the super etendard...

    Slovak Su-25s used very cool paint scheme... That flames look awesome! I like Su-25 and Su-22 attack aircrafts... shame that we have sold them to Macedonia and Angola.

    Nice picture, the painting reminds me of the A-10 , I love Sukhoi aircraft in general

    The French Mirage IV nuclear strategic bomber ... 2500 km/h !! too bad they decided to rely only on the Mirage 2000N for nuclear assault ... :/

    I join the topic


    I know it's Military aircrafts, but wants to show ekranoplan "Caspian Sea Monster"

    Maybe these are just a prototype but it's fascinating vehicles



    maybe someone will find this of interest here for them, because it is a lot of interesting material about them, and more prototypes

    Great airplane!

    No it's not a prototype it was really in service ! If you're interested on that topic, i recommend watching this documentary about ekranoplans and wing-inground effect in general

    I also have quite a lot of good quality pictures in all ekranoplans, where the Internet is very difficult to find if someone wanted

    I like videos like this, with footage from testing and so on... do you have some similar videos of Mirages or other French aircrafts? with footage of testing AGM, bombs... ?
