Over the last couple of years this DC-3 has been repainted in French Air Force colours, using a serial based its original USAAF identity of 43-2023. During WWII it was on the strength of 7th AF ATC and was used as the personal aircraft of General Montgomery, Commander 8th Army in North Africa and Italy. Civilianised after the war, it carried the identities NC19934, N93C, N81R, N400RS and finally N56NA. It arrived at Montelimar for addition to the museum by 2001, and until the recent repaint was displayed with red/black trim and that final US registration.

The Mirage IV was effectively a scaled-up Mirage III, designed to provide French nuclear delivery capability. The prototype first flew in 1959 and was followed by three pre-production and 62 production aircraft. The force was declared operational in March 1968 but in the mid-1970s the role changed from high to low-level attack and the Mirage IVs started to appear in grey/green camouflage. All bomber variants were retired by 1996 but reconnaissance-modified aircraft continued till 2005.

This is actually a former Luftwaffe Dornier-built G-91, 98+58, painted to represent an Italian G-91/T1. The genuine MM6362 is now dramatically posed on the ski slopes at Snowpark Mottolino, looking as though it has crash-landed there.
