Looks like first location will be super if they leave on a direct course for Woensdrecht, while the Schotlandweg will be great if they exit via the Sloehaven and follow the Schelde to Woensdrecht?

Pieter,
If any are outside you can see/read and photograph them from this point, 51.466411° 3.717302°. They've made it an official spotters location, just follow the signs. The plan is (was friday), when they fly out, they will go direction inland, so towards Goes.
I'd expect them to work on all helo's this weekend so that most will fly out to Woensdrecht on Monday.
12x CH-47F, 9x AH64E, 9x HH-60M, 8x UH-60L and 1x UH-60M.

Steve, thanks for your update. Could you please check this FY though. I presume this to be FY 98 instead of 93.

Kind Regards,

All the H-60s and most CH-47s have been in Europe before, the Apaches are all new to me.
