Anyone know if this is the two formation Mirage F.1 that performs at air show?
As far as I have heard one plane hit the others wing from below and behind, and the fact that they had been carrying out a training exercises above the Reims air base made me wonder if it is indeed the two display F.1's.

whether it is or not, it is a tragic accident  Sad

I have just read on Touch-down News that the two Mirage F.1's were the "Voltige Victor" duo, and they were practicing for this years air show season.
