I was fortunate enough to witness it indeed.

My last operational encounter with the mighty Mir F-1 was at Leeuwarden in April 2013. So today was a good day. Little sun burned, dehydrated, and a heat stroke but all well worth it.

ATAC has their next two Mirage F-1's airborne Oct 30, 2020.

Mirage F-1CT ex FAF 273 as N632AX (green camo).

N607AX, ex 517, F-1B (AFW?).
N614AX, ex 226, F-1CT (Holloman).

ATAC has two more Mirage F-1's airborne.

Mirage F-1CT ex FAF 242 as N622AX (green camo), first flight in US Civ Reg, Dec 7, 2020.
Mirage F-1CT ex FAF 283 as N646AX (green camo), first flight in US Civ Reg, Dec 4, 2020.

Not aware of any others coming out soon. Of course their hangars are full but haven't seen any others that suggest they are close to being completed for first flight.

Seems ATAC is flying again after their F-1B mishap a few weeks ago.

The following were noted on their Ramp Mar 15, 2021.
620 as N617AX.
279 as N642AX.
632 as N623AX "Atac 11".
267 as N630AX "Atac 12".

I think N623AX has flown prior but N630AX I think it was her first flight in the US (at least with ATAC).

Mirage F-1CR ex FAF 654, as N635AX, was transferred to Luke AFB on Monday Oct 4, 2021.

And I believe a first flight for Mirage F1CR ex FAF 662, N645AX, on Tuesday Oct 5, 2021.
