My first trip to the famed Pima Air & Space Museum did not disappoint.  What did surprise me was the quantity of foreign aircraft in the collection, like this French Air Force Mystère IVA fighter-bomber.  I have always liked the aesthetics of Dassault aircraft, and the metal finish on this one makes it more lovely in the evening light.  France was the main operator of the Mystère IV and at the peak usage operated 6 squadrons.  The type flew combat missions with the Israeli and Indian Air Forces.  This aircraft was formerly on display at the Imperial War Museum Duxford in the UK.
