Dear Mike,

 I’ve found  photos of a crash of a french Mirage 2000D ,I think it could be interesting for you because I didn’t found it on your site.

It was on August the 26th (2004) just beside of Colmar Air Base. The accident happened during a air combat training between two Mirage 2000D of the 3/3 “Ardennes” squadron. The crew of the N°633 was obliged to eject because of an engine failure(the pilot not succed in triyng to restart the engine).

The engine failure happened at 14500ft but the pilot and the NOSA ejected at 1800ft.The plan crashed between Colmar AB and a village.

The pilot was seriousely injured but the NOSA was OK.

I’ve found it(photos+ accident report) in the site of the french Air Defense Bureau of Investigation (B.E.A.D).

 Best wishes

  Fred
