With the Top Aces operating from Nordholz and RWY 08 in use, I gave it a shot, hoping to catch as many A-4s as possible. Especially the TA-4 was still on the wishlist. Spoiler: it still is.. That one flew the day after. Can't have it all.
The Top Aces use a hangar on the (civil) airport side, and everything that will fly is being towed out on the platform. Easy to reach, and no problems taking a few pictures:

The local MFG5 'flightschool' also operates from this platform, and it departed for one of many of its circuits when I was taking a look.

The helicopters of MFG5 don't use the runway much, most go direct towards their platform. Most go right over your head on the parking lot near RWY08, and are hard to take pictures of. I got a few exceptions.
83+09 Lynx MFG5
89+65 Sea King Mk.88 MFG5
The Bundespolizei came and took a look, doing an approach using RWY08, followed by one on RWY26.

Nordholz also has two types of aircraft. The Do-228 and the P-3C, both belonging to MFG3. The 60+06 flew a local training mission

And on to the stars of the show for me. In the morning 3 A-4s and an Alpha Jet flew. In the afternoon, the A-4 532 joined the party
