Additional infos from:

Yasser al-Abed

Note 1:

The IDF-AF lost no Mirage IIICJ or IIIRJ (recce-version) on this day. It is possible, however, that there is a mix-up in relation to the date, and that this Pakistani claim stands in some relation with the loss of an IDF/AF Mirage IIIRJ on 6 May 1974.

Note 2:

Turkish Photographic-survey aircraft of type Britten-Norman BN-2A-3 Islander, belonging to Turkish General Directorate of Land Registry (annexed unit of Ministry of Public Works and Settlement) - hence an unarmed government aircraft - was shot down by two Syrian MiG-21 (which violated Turkish airspace) in Samandag District of Hatay, Turkey, killing a crew of two and three technicians. Special thanks to Mr. Kursad A., Mr. Feridun Tasdan, and Mr. Turhan Gungor for details.
