Pakistan Air Force Dassault Mirage III Crashed After Takeoff From Rafiqui Air Base

A Pakistan Air Force Mirage III crashed a few minutes after takeoff from Rafiqui Air Base (OPRQ).

According to the latest reports, the pilot ejected safely and no loss of property was reported.

The Air Headquarters has formed a committee to investigate the causes behind the crash, Pakistan news website Arynews reports.

Pakistan’s Air Force has been operating Mirage combat jets for the last five decades. Despite the introduction of the JF-17, the force has put the retirement of the Mirage on hold due to the absence of better alternatives.

Over the past five decades, Pakistan has acquired nearly 150 Mirage III/V fighters. The force has previously also bought retired Mirage-III jets from Australia.
