HISTORY

The J-2012/HB-RDF aircraft, active within Espace Passion, has flown more than 1,387 hours.

This magnificent aircraft is part of the Air Force’s second series of two-seater Mirages.
The first series of four aircraft is named Mirage III BS, while the second series of two aircraft, introduced in 1980, is named Mirage III DS (J-2011 and J-2012).
The code name of the two-seater Mirages is “EMIR” (E for exercise and MIR for Mirage). Unlike single-seaters, two-seaters were not equipped with radar. Their weapons were 2 30 mm guns, 2 infrared air-to-air rockets (SIWA), as well as lures (chaffs & flares).

The J-2012 made its last flight in the service of the Air Force in December 2003, from Buochs to Payerne, and was offered to the Foundation in 2005.

It is currently the only flight-ready aircraft engaged in flight service by Espace Passion.
