A crash-damaged Mirage on display at the Darwin Aviation Heritage Museum' in 1994. The 75 Sqn 'Miracle' had an engine flame-out (due to a sticking 'Stops Corrector') on approach to Darwin Airport on 27May85. The Pilot, Flg Off John Quaife (now AVM Quaife), ejected and the aircraft pancaked wheels-up onto the Ludmilla mudflats. The centre-line fuel tank was ripped off (cause of Stbd intake damage?) and she skidded to a stop on her supersonic tanks. A3-36 has now been restored, in 75 Sqn camouflage livery.
