Picture of the 05-07002 at Rotterdam with Blakcjack Badge.
Thanks, but I already noticed that at Eindhoven. It is really only 05-07010 and 07-05535 I am after. Anybody?
I do like to add that these rocket pods are interchangable. The ex 1-3rd Avn/12 CAB ones marked in my overview actually have the Marne striped shield on the engine cowling.
Yes, I realise that. But that is the same with any sticker badge I guess. I have seen German Typhoons land at Nörvenich with a JG71 badge which was pulled off five minutes after shutdown, revealing a JBG 31 badge... It is the markings that are cariied at the time I seem them I am interested in. Wth the Apaches the markings on the engine cowlings seem to be overpainted by the way, at least on the pictures I saw.

There surely must have been somebody who photographed 7010 and 5535 when they arrived at Rotterdam? I am still hoping :-)

07-5535 has the Blackjack badge on the rocketpod, the Marne stripes on the engine cowling, and a Red/white rectangle below the cockpit rear seat.
Haven't seen the 7010.

Inside I can only make out "208" with the final digits blocked by a bag.

Based on your experience guys, what is te chance that the ones currently at Illesheim will arrive in the port of Rotterdam tomorrow (6-7-20)?

Based on earlier postings I guess them going to Ramstein first. Will they, after leaving Ramstein, go for Eindhoven and stay there overnight or going straight for Rotterdam?

Based on experience, many options are possible, as we have seen last week. We have seen stops at Ramstein, Spangdahlem and even Norvenich, and yes, also at Eindhoven, but no guarantee that they will stay overnight or even stop there.

The weather may also play ball tomorrow btw.

7010 only carried Blackjack logo on the rocketpod.

There's no telling that. They don't even have to stay at EIN overnight. Last friday, some birds departed EIN after an overnight stay (or even more than one night), some departed after being on the ground for barely an hour and some just passed overhead direct to the port. They CAN do Illesheim-Ramstein-Eindhoven-Rotterdam in one day, they proved that.

This is great info! Thanks.

You wrote earlier that 7037 was damaged. Any idea how this one will return to the US?

Or even Illesheim Rotterdam direct like the 4 UH60's did on Friday.
