      The middle picture hanging on his wall...on the right.
      Looks like a Cheetah C.
      Would have been interesting to hear what his opinion is on it....basically being gutted and equipped with modern electronics, as well as an off-bore helmet guided missile system that he was impressed with.

        I don't think it's Cheetah C rather than twin-seat Mirage 2000B, D or N..

          definitely a 2000B. the massive hangar makes me think of Istres, and the guy in the orange suit leads me to think it was a sortie with the EPNER (French test pilot school)... which fits the pedigree and curriculum of the guy.

            Ok...
            It just had the characteristic "sit" or look of the Cheetah.
            Germany has been using the Overberg range/AFB in the Western Cape for years..and the TFDC there always had Cheetahs on hand, so assumed thats what it was.

              I never knew Germany used the Overberg range/AFB in the Western Cape. Thanks for that info.
