Parts at an Antique Shop

Can anyone identify the parts in this pic? Two four blade props, something that looks like a rocket but is actually a drop tank, and more?

The script on the drop tank says "Mirage III-R". Maybe...

Cropping one of your photos

Cool place.

I did a quick look up of the recon version of the Dassault Mirage III and noticed that the nose cone on the right has a lot more ports than in other photos I've seen.

Yes, looks like southern France, based on the sign and vegetation.

You mean like this place? Its the Cockpit Lounge at the Hotel Christine in Landstuhl. I especially like the ceiling fan. I already have a spinner from a Connie that will someday be part of the ceiling fan in my bar room.

The "Blue Max" restaurant that used to be in the terminal building at Boeing Field in Seattle had ex-airline seats in their waiting area, and along one wall was a row of seats for diners that were obviously once jet-fighter ejection seats!

Yes, very nice. Tho mine would be a bit more rustic. And for the used parts, more patina instead of shine.

Thanks for the comments, but can anyone ID the props?

And yes, this was in southern France, in an antique shop in L'Isle sur la Sorgue. Very picturesque and beautiful.
