F-2000CFortele Aeriene Braziliene au organizat, in data de 20 decembrie, o ceremonie care a marcat retragerea avioanelor Mirage 2000 C/B dupa doar sapte ani de serviciu. Misiunile acestora vor fi preluate temporar de aparatele modernizate F-5EM.

Baza Aeriana Anapolis-GO a fost gazda evenimentului la care au participat inalte oficialitati braziliene.

Retrase oficial pe 20 decembrie, avioanele Mirage 2000 vor zbura pana la sfarsitul acestui an, urmand ca de la 1 ianuarie F-5EM sa le preia atributiile pana cand Brazilia va primi primele Saab Gripen.

Istoria lui Mirage 2000 in cadrul Fortelor Aeriene Braziliene este foarte scurta. 12 asemenea avioane au fost achizitionate la mana a doua din Franta, in perioada 2006-2008, pentru a acoperi golul provocat de intarzierea programului de achizitie a avionului multirol.

Contractul de intretinere si suport semnat de Brazilia si Franta expira in data de 26 decembrie 2013 iar sud-americanii nu au dorit prelungirea acestuia deoarece au anuntat ca vor cumpara avioane multirol Saab Gripen.

De altfel, se discuta cu partea suedeza preluarea unei escadrile de Gripen C/D incepand cu anul viitor si folosirea ei pana la livrarea noilor avioane construite de Saab.F-2000CBrazilian Air Force held on December 20 a ceremony marking the withdrawal of Mirage 2000 C/B jets after only seven years of service. Their missions will be taken temporarily by F-5EM planes.

Anapolis-GO Air Base hosted the event attended by senior officials of the Brazilian.

Formally withdrawn on December 20, Mirage 2000 will fly until the end of the year. From January 1st, F-5EM will take over the missions until the first Saab Gripen will be delivered.

History of Mirage 2000 in the Brazilian Air Force is very short. 12 aircraft were purchased at second hand from France in 2006-2008 period to cover the gap caused by the delay of multirole aircraft acquisition program.
