The best and the baddest video footage of Mirage-2000.
This is from the movie Sky Fighters. I suggest you check it out.

Can you suggest some good French War movies like Les Chevaliers Du Ciel?
But only those whose English translation is out?
I saw one, Special Forces as well.. that was also pretty good.
Can't think of any French directors and producers prefer making historical movies far in the past. "Special Forces" and " Sky Fighters " with Magimel and Cornillac are two exceptions . There is also " The search " ( Hazanavicius ' movie), 2014, but it is about Chechenya.
In this great Hushkit piece, a RAF pilot has lot of nice things to say about the Mirage 2000.
He flew in the Mirage 2000 C version from 1993-1997 .
"After mastering the Lightning and Tornado, the RAF’s Ian Black volunteered to fly France’s hottest fighter, the superb Mirage 2000. Black explains what is was like to fly the ultimate Mirage, and how it fared in dogfights against the most formidable fighters of the 1980s"
How long the French use the Mirage 2000?
55 Mirage D dedicated to ground attack will be upgraded and will serve til 2030. Also AdlA wants to keep some thirty Mirage 2000-5 ( interceptor role) flying as long as possible, 2025 at least. It is not as modern as the Mirage 2000-9 Emirates fly but still a nice fighter .
