On January 24th 1984 the rebel forces in Chad took a number of hostages, and two Jaguars, escorted by two Mirage F.1s, located a convoy near Torodoum. A second pair of Jaguars was given permission to attack the convoy. During the action one of the Jaguars was hit in its main hydraulic system. The pilot, Captain Michel Croci, managed to eject but was too close to the ground and was killed.
