    I know this may be a bit off-topic but what is with the Victor's door? It looks a bit over-engineered to me.

    Discrete but with a lot of allusions for this HAF Mirage 2000.

    this is the reason it is discreet, otherwise the entire nose and fuselage would be full of it.

    Or when HAF Mirage 2000 meet TURAF F-16 and "incident" must remain discreet.
    Of course, THIS IS NOT a killmark !

    Rear crew did not have ejection seats and the door helped them get out in flight

    F-106A 58-0772 of the 171st FIS, Michigan ANG. This artwork was only on the aircraft for a VERY short time. The 171st flew Sixes from 1972 to 1978 (and a sad day it was when they left Selfridge ANGB).

    I had a friend some years back from Michigan that's father flew F-106's back in the day. I don't think he was stationed at either Selfridge or K.I. Sawyer AFB. If, memory serves me he also flew F-102's and F-15's at the end of his career.

    The #220 wore a killmark (Turkish Flag) on its nose for few days. It was obviously found as too much of a provocation even in Greece.

    Not the best picture I've ever seen (Turkish flag is hardly distinguishable) but such rarity is tasteful.
    Many thanks MSphere.
    Fortunately, Turkey and Greece are allies in NATO : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpmwjdcGCG0#t=32

    Many thanks MSphere.
    Given the fact, that this kill has resulted in death of Turkish pilot, Nail Erdogan and that a murder case has been raised against the Greek pilot, Thanos Grivas, seven years following th eincident, it is more than understandable that the flag has been deleted from the aircraft asap.

    To calm down this thread about killmark or not, let us remember that it was not the first time (neither the last) that a pilot lost his life in combat or mock combat between the two air forces. Greek pilots as well as Turkish ones frequently goes beyond the red line. Religion and/or political interests leads to many confrontations.
    Combat pilots are responsible adults who knows exactly what they make, even bloody stupid things.

    True. Not defending any side here. Just reporting what happened.
