Hi there,

Anything known about departure times, mainly for possible Thursday departures, and when the 1st planes are going home Friday? A few years back, and despite of some planes even flying a Friday morning mission, the Swedish Gripens were gone 8 a.m.!

Thanks in advance!

Martin

Just out of curiosity... Is it possible to identify an aircraft's role/mission with its callsign, since most FF editions the same callsigns are being used?
Thanks for any clarifications!

Conflicting talk of Frisian Flag exercises next year. I heard many say no exercise for next year, yet the base Twitter messages say ‘see you next year’

Any definite plans for the next few years with the introduction of the F-35? Any years planned to have no FF?

Thanks

Next year another FF and what is told it will be a special edition (2019). Then no 2020 edition of FF. In that period the Netherlands airforce is getting familiar with its new toy.

....expect F35's from several countries :o .
