Jup, due to the fact that Leeuwarden was closed. Nice aircraft to see, despite the pouring rain.

Looks like a navigation trip. First Beauvechien, heading north to Eelde, after that heading south-west to.....Soesterberg or Rotterdam for a nightstop? and back to the UK via Koksijde or Oostende ....just a wild guess but sounds logical to me :lol:

By the way very nice weather for a navigation trip, makes it more difficult :wink:
Assume makes an ASS of U and ME.

a photo of XW208 is at GEAS-web. Did not upload all three as the weather was very bad.

XW232 (RFR7322B) and XW235 (RFR7322C) had an 230 sqn. badge, XW208 (RFR7322A) had no badge.
