L'avion de chasse F-5 A

L'avion de chasse F-5 A
The most remarkable fact in the Royal Moroccan Air Force history is the role the F-5As played in the attempted coup against King Hassan II on 16 August 1972, when several RMAF officers assaulted their King by scrambling F-5As and shoot their 20mm guns at the Royal Air Maroc Boeing 727 carrying the King from a visit to France. The coup failed however, and a purging took place in RMAF circles. Another interesting fact would be the detachment of one F-5A squadron to Egypt in mid-October 1973, to redeem a promise originally made by King Hassan II to help Egypt in the next war with Israel. The detachment did not engage Israeli forces, but flew combat air patrols inside Egypt.
