NATO Meeting 24/25/26 May

Post by AK01 »

No news, Trump will visit the Nato meeting next week in Brussels.
I would like to see the supporting E-4B, if anyone has information on where it will land i would be grateful. My guess will be Ramstein or Spangdahlem.
Also wondering, the Secdef James Mattis will also visit the Nato meeting, he travels on an E-4 most of the time. Could it be that there will be two E-4's in Western Europe next week?

btw So far no activity like VH-60's VH-3D or MV-22,s, as far as i can see they usually arrive a week before the presidents visit, anyone?
Pieter,

No idea if it's any help, but Trump will be doing Saudi-Israel-Vatican first. So my best guess is that any supporting choppers will be hopping along in a couple of pairs.

As for SecDef, his E-4 will probably be at Brussels for the NATO summit. Has happened before that 2 E-4s were in Europe at the same time.

Question is, wil Mr. Mueller allow the carrot to leave the US, or must he be available for interrogation.

Looks like beside arrival of Air force One on May 24th (plus other US and Nato Government aircraft arriving to attend Nato meeting), a fly by carried out by military planes is scheduled over Nato new headquarters building at Brussels Evere on May 25th (sky around Brussels will once again be closed due to this fly-by).

No precise informations about this or planes involved, but the fly-by is confirmed here :

May 25th is also Memorial Day in the US and traditionally some fighters (US and Dutch) make flypasses at Margraten and other sites. Perhaps these will also be involved in the flypast at Evere.

Are there any special security measures /roadblocks in place around the airfield during the summit?

Also, are scheduled arrival times known?

Any practical info is very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Paul

At Luchtzak.be a VH-3D Sea King was confirmed as flying over Brussels. Is that the only chopper that has arrived?
