Istres/Le Tube (LFMI) 2016 MIL

Post by Stefan »

Rumours suggest that Indian Jaguars (on their way to Alaska) MIGHT stop here mid-next week.

Any confirmation or additional info is appreciated by all I guess. Sketchy info only, but worth sharing anyway.

Rgds,

They are likely to stop in somewhere like the south of France or Italy en route from, say Korla in Turkey to Lajes.

Previous Indian deployments have made 3 or 4 stops between leaving India and showing up at Lajes.

As usual, time will tell.

Doha for the first stop would be a good bet.
