Oman RAFO Retires Jaguar Aircraft After 37 Years In Service
The move leaves India as the only country in the world still using Jaguars.
The Jaguars have now been replaced by new F16 aircraft. Although the ceremony was held last week, RAFO had officially retired its SEPECAT Jaguar operations, with the aircraft carrying out a disbandment flypast at the Thumrait airbase in August.
RAFO received its first Jaguar in 1977, under a 12-aircraft acquisition programme from the UK.
A second batch was ordered in 1982 and introduced the following year.
