Not an LM pilot, but a KLu pilot.

But wouldn't it be better to have this conversation in the Leeuwarden section instead of this thread? And simply mention its actual delivery date here once the jet has landed at Leeuwarden? That will keep this thread tidy and allow the spotters at Leeuwarden to get a heads-up where they expect it the most. :wink:

We might even consider starting a F-35 delivery thread in the Leeuwarden section. Especially since the KLu F-35 will (initially) be delivered to Leeuwarden until mid-2022.

Are these FY tie-ups confirmed? Would be nice to see a close-up picture of that front wheel door.
