Happy hunting!

thanks JPS & closedloop for the additions. I assume the ones in Turkey have been airlifted there and will head back the same way? I left them out of this overview, as they probably never attended on this side (Europe). I updated the overview on page24.

Most of the time they skip Eindhoven if they make a fuel stop on Spangdahlem.
