Spangdahlem air demonstration evokes disaster memories
By Jennifer H. Svan
Stars and Stripes
Published: July 27, 2011

KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany — When an F-16 fighter jet and other military planes take their turns in the sky over Spangdahlem Air Base this weekend as part of an open house, Roland Fuchs, a survivor of the 1988 Ramstein air disaster, won’t be among the bystanders.

The aerial demonstration — with maneuvers more complex than a flyby — is the first to be performed before the public on a U.S. military base in Germany since a 1988 air show crash at Ramstein Air Base, where 67 spectators were killed and more than 500 others injured, U.S. Air Forces in Europe officials said.

Did West-Germany really have an F-4 aerobatic team during the eighties?

Hi all, heard two Polish F-16's on the scanner this morning on the scanner, flying inbound Spangdahlem. Didn't hear them land, but I guess these 2 were the already announced Polish F-16's for the airshow at Spang. Go and get them this weekend..... :bday:

Greetings, Dre.
