Dassault Mirage IIIO(F) RAAF A3-44
This aircraft was one of 116 Mirages delivered to the RAAF (48 Mirage IIIO(F), 50 Mirage IIIO(A) and 16 Mirage IIIO(D) two seater GAF built aircraft, plus 2 pattern aircraft built in France by Dassault). She was constructed and delivered on 22nd September 1966.
Mirage A3-44 was immediately taken on charge by RAAF 77 Squadron based at RAAF Base Williamtown NSW, with whom she spent most of her operational life. Since 2002, the Mirage was located at the now closed, Australian Aviation Museum at Bankstown, NSW.
The Mirage was relocated by HFC volunteers from Bankstown to Scone NSW in 2021 and is held In-Trust with Hunter Fighter Collection Inc. Restored and repainted by HFC volunteers, she is on display at the Hunter Warbirds Aviation Attraction at Scone NSW.
