Exercise starts on 1 July. Indian AF aircraft mentioned in article is 10 SU-30, 1 Il-76 AWACS and 1 Il-78 Tanker. They will mainly fly against Rafale fighters.
The airbase being Mont-de-Marsan?

Thanks for your notes on the PdeF. It confirms what I thought, the list on the airshow news thread was wrong. Regarding the codes. These change frequently. I seem to remember at one RIAT they were changed between arrival and departure. Check out the aircraft and codes at Volkel!

frank kramer wrote:Although you're basically right about them being only Alpha Jets, everybody is still curious WHICH Alpha Jets. :roll: :wink: Especially as they are moving between units (and between stickers within the PdF :twisted: ). For instance, the unmarked 162/8-RJ of EE03.008 USED to be a PdF-bird (F-TERJ).
I hope everybody is still curious, I have the following from my pictures:
E44 / 1
E139 / 3
E20 / 4
E68 / 5 / F-TEMO (serial taken from F-TEMO)
E127 / 5
E129 / 6 / F-TELP
E85 / 7 / F-UGFF
E87 / 9 (Code allocated via method of elimination - I got serial "87", but no code for it and have code "9" in a formation)
The nineth one which was flying next to the formation with the Tigers and was in the "old" PdF colours:
E73 / - / F-TENE (serial taken from F-TENE at Biarritz airport at 20:00 the same day). The other eight were there too but escaped further identification as the Alpha Jets concealed each other.

I hope that helps a bit.
Happy Spotting Cujo
OK, that's Friday sorted!

Can anyone fill in then gaps for Thursday? (or at least report their sightings so we can build a picture!), to add to this:
Have a bit of info about Patrouille de France Alpha Jets on thursday. I could read the following from photo's. Number 6 was the F-TELP with nosewheelnumber 129. Number 7 was the F-UGFF, but I couldn't read the nosewheeldoornumber. Number 9 was the F-TELC with nosewheeldoornumber 87. All 100 procent sure. Also could read 2 further nosewheeldoornumbers : 85 and 127.

yes it does! And as the combination serial/registration-radiocall does not change, I have checked them with the PdF at Volkel and updated your list accordingly, so we can finally put the friday to rest :wink:

Hello Charles,
Thank you, would not have expected a re-registration for this type as they already comply to the AB123(4) way of presenting the serial.

However, they align with the A-50Ehi AWACS in the KWxxxx range and the new range for the Il-76MD, which is KIxxxx

First sight for the new serial presentation.

Regards,
Hans van Herk

Thank you Andy, must have missed this one.
As I said, I did not expect a reregistration for this type of aircraft
