Da*n, you're right. I changed it. She would leave tonight - latest tomorrow morning. She will go to Toulon bay.

Thanks for the log Stefan! Can you please state which Hornet was below deck next to F-18 "411"? Both were visible from outside.

Best regards

Could you confirm that 305 was parked next to Hornet 204 and Prowler 501? I could only make 30. since a pole was too close to the aircraft on the ramp that shifting a few meters didn't help.
I also logged Hornet code 303 between 110 and 403 on the front deck, did you see this one? If so, could you provide a BuNo?

Hallo Joris,
Friday afternoon I can confirm that the 2 VFA-37 Hornets slightly to the left of the Prowlers where 302 & 310. This was noted from the parking.
From my view from the flats, the 305 was more or less parked left of the 204 (starting a new row of 5 from left too right).

I and several others all quoted the 303 between 110 and 403. But there is no mention of this Hornet on the above list. Maybe a typo somewhere above?

Regards,
Charles

Sorry, had a request of my own. Who can point out to me where the 201 was parked on deck?
