As you may recall, a live radar-guided, air-to-air missile was found last week on the tarmac of the Lakeland, Florida airport. We analyzed the serial number and data details of this missile and found that it was a "Matra R530F" missile, made by French weapons contractors and designed to be used on French-made mirage fighter jets. (See photos below.)
As we pointed out in a previous article, this missile had a live warhead and was equipped with propulsion fuel. It merely needed to be attached to a Mirage fighter jet and it could be launched against any aircraft flying over the skies of America. We speculated that even Air Force One could be theoretically brought down by this missile.
