Dassault Mirage F1ED
Luqa - Malta International (MLA / LMML)
Malta, February 22, 2011
Remark
Photographer
502 A historic and delicate moment for Malta when 2 Libyan Mirages(502/508) defected and flew their jets to Malta.The pilots told the Maltese authorities that they left from a base near Tripoli(Okba Ben Nafi Air Base) and flew to Malta after being ordered to bomb protesters who had occupied the Libyan second city of Benghazi. Instead they escaped and came to Malta for Political Asylum!
