Post by BaasG »

According to the Dutch Airforce site next year the Luchtmachtdagen will be back at Volkel, at June 14th and 15th.
In 2019 zijn de Luchtmachtdagen op 14 en 15 juni, op Vliegbasis Volkel. Tijdens deze dagen ziet u onder meer demonstraties met Nederlandse en buitenlandse vliegtuigen en een static show met vliegtuigen op de grond. Zoals altijd is het evenement gratis toegankelijk voor jong en oud.

If you take Google Earth you will see that it is 5.4km in a straight line to the airshow gate.

Only if you leave till the last wheel has touched the tarmac.

Most times I leave halfway during the last display and have no issues at all traffic wise.
