The Mirage F1M/BM was withdrawn from use in June 2013. Ala 14 is being re-equipped with the Eurofighter. An initial batch detached from Ala 11 (Moron) is now being replaced by factory-new aircraft.
The aircraft on loan form Ala 11 retain their own codes. The newly assigned Ala 14 aircaft have not been code yet.
 
For the time being this will be a familiar sight at Albacete. In due time, however, the Mirages will be replaced by the Eurofighter.
