Picture of the week.

Belgian Air Force Mirage V BR -recce version- on take-off from 42nd reconnaissance squadron at Bierset AFB.  The plane received this special color scheme for 70th anniversary of the “Mephisto” squadron.
Photo taken lying on the open ramp of a C-130 Hercules. Thanks to the perfect communications between the pilots of the C-130 Photoship and the Mirage, we were just overhead the runway at the time the Mirage started his take-off.
Picture taken in the pre digital era on Fuji slide  100 asa with CANON EOS 1 and  CANON 70–210 mm lens
