A classic in the sense of a contretemps (a good french word too!)
btw: The refeulling probe is a fixture on any Mirage 2000 A/C equipped for air-to-air refeullin

Are they gonna perform a parallel takeoff? from same runway

A visitor from Australia posted Sat December 4, 2010:

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed August 4, 2010:
Finally a picture where it can be clearly seen how the MC-15 is a Mirage 2000 ripoff. One simply can't tell the two apart.

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 8, 2010:
Mini me!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 18, 2010:
If they were to duel in a gunfight, the Cricket would easily turn into the Mirage every time. Mirage would overshoot all the time. Useless comparison, great picture.

A visitor from - posted Thu June 3, 2010:
Pilot : Request clearance for takeoff form RWY x
Tower : Where are you?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu May 20, 2010:
Reckon i'd need a twin-engine rating to fly the cricket huh? lol

A visitor from El Salvador posted Sat May 15, 2010:
MC-15 Pilot: Are you sure do you want a race?
Mirage Pilot: Yes, why not?

A visitor from - posted Sat May 15, 2010:

CRICKET PILOT: "You must be this tall to ride!"
JET PILOT: "Buzz off!"

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 25, 2010:
The mirage is nice, but it's still just a single engine.

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 26, 2010:
Mirage: Hey buddy, GET OFF DA RUNWAY!
Cricket: Hey big boy don't you be bossing me around I got clearance from Mr.Tower.

A visitor from Germany posted Wed February 17, 2010:
I bet that this tiny aircraft had a better acceleration than the Mirage in the first second they accelerated! :D

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun November 30, 2008:

A visitor from Canada posted Mon November 24, 2008:
That thing would be the cheapest possible way to build up multi time!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 30, 2008:
What a great perspective! It's almost as if they're discussing who should take off first!

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 30, 2008:
This is too much, too funny and I am LMAO

Gentlemen, start your engines. 20 bucks says the Mirage beats the Cricket down the runaway.
