Nothing else had flown by 1430 LT :(
Ah I was not aware another one (number eight) came in this morning...

All seven German NH-90s were seen and confirmed this evening (so 78+23 and 79+10 from THR 10 and 78+36, 78+37, 78+39, 79+02 and 79+15 from THR 30, with units taken from this board since they carry no markings). Just follow the path from the parking lot till you come at the old compass. From there you can already see them through the trees, so you can stay legal ;-)
To read them off you will have to walk to the fence from here, which is only some 25 meters.
Happy hunting!

By the way:
Oja, klein detail: Het is tegenwoordig weer Vliegbasis Deelen, geen MLT meer.
I believe you immediately! Funny however that in the publication of the MoD at https://www.defensie.nl/onderwerpen/fal ... er-oefenen they are (still) speaking of Militair Luchtvaarterrein Deelen.... :D

All THR 30 aircraft DO carry a unit badge behind the cockpit window, black on green. The other 2 indeed have no markings.

A closer look at some very distant pics reveal that 78+28 is very likely to be the correct serial of the visiting NH90.

Ooops.... Since it was getting dark fast, I focussed on reading the serials, but still lousy I missed that :shock:

Heeft het veteranenbos nog bepaalde openingstijden?
Als ik het goed heb van zonsopgang tot zonsondergang op wegen en paden.
En dat laatste is wel een dingetje, want je moet natuurlijk van het pad af om bij het hek te komen.

Ik ben al weggestuurd door Duitse militairen.
Ze hebben natuurlijk formeel niets te zeggen, maar ze kunnen wel gaan klagen en dan weet ik niet hoe lang het goed gaat of er komt buiten het hek toezicht....
Duurde het lang voor ze je wegstuurden? Ik wil eventueel maandag gaan kijken. En hoop natuurlijk wat foto's te kunnen maken.

Hi Dino, the pictures on your website of the German NH90's, were they taken from the Veteranenbos?

Thanks.
