Depends a bit on your style but about 70-300 should get you there. For a proper banking shot you're looking at 400m+
I took some great images just with my phone camera last year.

As in better safe than sorry...
Both the Mig-29 and A-4 use Wittmund and Wittmund EF's use EHLW? Thought for several (safety)reasons, participants were to use single base.

The German article quoted above states that the Eufis (a third of the total unit) will operate "from elsewhere", so Leeuwarden for the EF's.

Always going forward... still can't find reverse!

No problem with flying from different airbases, Briefing can be done by videolink and in the sky they use air traffic controllers to keep them apart :D
