Does anyone know the current status of Mirage 804?

804 was with the SAAF Museum and then transferred to AFB Makhado. From google maps it looks like she is standing outside as a gate guard.

There are a few images of 804 here

I took photographs of her late last year - she stands at 2 Squadron and is looked after by the technical groundcrew. She is still in good condition.

Without posting said photos to back up the statement, this post is classified as "fake news". :wink:

The photo may be classified as "classified", photography on active bases is a touchy subject.

flyingspringbok if you can crop, edit, blur; it would be great to see 804.
