Was already afraid of that, but understandable. Difficult to cath them on my scanners from here..
I will concentrate on the Harriers then..

Thank you for the info.

And RAF C-47 checked in as (suprise, suprise) Dakota!

Does anyone know whether the C-130 circling Venray for half an hour was also for the airshow?

Thanks Oscar,

It wasn't a stretched Herc so it was very likely 130328.

(I could have known that if I had checked the Volkel topic) :oops:

Indeed the Hercules was not for the airshow at Weeze but it could be seen flying around in the distance.

The BoBMF Hurricane, Spittfire and Dakota, the RAF Typhoon and the Luftwaffe Tornado will leave tomorrow.

Question: do the Spitfire and Hurricane from BoBMF have a civil registration? I saw them 2 May making a low pass at Antwerpen EBAW.

Nope, they have military serials.
