It's not you. The fact is that the press in general stops reporting things like this.

People in the military or with more connections to the military are more likely to be aware of things like this.

Peace to all.

The UN No Fly Zone in the North and South was started in 1991 NOT 1970.

for the sake of arguement lets say:
2000 times
since 1991

1991 - 2003: 12 * 365 days = 4,380 days

2,000 / 4,380 = 0.4566

let's say that instead of firing just once Iraq fires 10 times at one aircraft

that would mean that on avarage more than once every 20 days Iraq has fired at a coalition aircraft on a legal UN mission since 1991

I really didn't know this
media coverage has been lacking on this subject over here
(or I don't watch the news often enough which can also be true)

Trust me, I'm not pulling this out of the air, and no its not been front page news because its seen as routine by the media. Not a single Coalition aircraft has ever been hit which is remarkable.

I'd say that some months, Coalition aircraft are fired at nearly everyday with a wide variety of weapons systems. Mainly airdefense guns though, rather than missiles. The US government invest several hundred million dollars on the No Fly Zones every year. Its not a secret, and is part of the congressional record hear in the USA.
