Introduction

Serial : A3-7  
Type : Mirage IIIO(F)  
Squadron : 2 Operational Conversion Unit (2OCU), Williamtown, N.S.W (circa 1985)  
Scheme: Low Vis grey.  This was the only 2OCU jet to wear the low vis grey scheme.  It was later transferred to 3 Squadron, Butterworth before being reduced to spares in 1986 and hangared as a partial fuselage.  When the Pakistanis found out about it they took it for spare parts as part of the purchase deal to the disgust of some RAAF personnel who wanted to hang on to it.

Reference :  The Meteor, Sabre & Mirage in Australian Service (Stewart WILSON)
