Updated: Jun 10

A Draken International aircraft, a Dassault Mirage F1, crashed southwest of Nellis AFB at 2:30 PM on May 24.


The pilot was identified as Las Vegas resident Nicholas Hunter Hamilton, 43.

A witness said the aircraft was flying very low and its engine sounded like it was malfunctioning, according to KTNV Las Vegas.

The Mirage F1M was registered as N567EM. Draken began flying its ex-Spanish F1Ms out of Nellis last year as part of "Red Air" adversary support to the US Air Force.
