Jaguar A French Air Force

25 years ago, on 17 January 1991, the (first) Gulf War began. I too remember watching CNN for hours when the F-117's first bombed targets in and around Baghdad. Great fireworks.


The French sent Jaguars (and Mirage F1's, Mirage 2000's and Super Etendards) to the Middle East to fight the Iraqis.


The photo was taken during the opday at Beauvechain (Belgium) on 5 September 1992. A153 is stored now at Chateaudun.
