Flight understands that half of the tail was blown off but the pilot succeeded in returning to AFB Rundu, in the Caprivi Strip. The aircraft was landed on Rundu's short strip, but the parachute failed due to battle damage. The Mirage ran off the end of the runway into rough ground and the nosewheel collapsed. As the forward fuselage hit the ground, cockpit distortion fired the Martin-Baker Mk.10 ejection seat. The pilot survived, but was seriously injured.
