The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) revealed the installation of new avionics in an Alpha Jet it has reactivated when the aircraft (NAF 455) was recommissioned by the 407 Air Combat Training Group at Kainji Air Base on 21 March.

"The avionics upgrade, which is the first of its kind on the Alpha Jet, has also significantly improved the aircraft navigation and communications systems, thus increasing safety, reliability, and overall efficiency," the NAF quoted Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar as saying during the aircraft's recommissioning ceremony.
