The second prototype of France's nuclear bomber, slightly larger than the first, made its maiden flight on 12.10.61 and spent decades in the open after retirement at the Musée de l'Air. A recent restoration has been completed and the aircraft is now displayed inside in a camouflage scheme to represent an operational example in the later years. The last Mirage IVPs were withdrawn from service in 2005
