Any clue when the F15 that already arrived will start to fly local missions?

Wat ik gehoord heb is dat de 'familiarization flights', het vertrouwd raken met het lokale luchtruim, beginnen als alle F-15's aan dek zijn. Als met wat geluk maandag de laatste F-15's binnen komen, zouden ze dinsdag hiermee al kunnen starten. Zoals altijd 'time will tell'.

Ik zie niet in waarom ze met Fam Flights zouden wachten totdat alle Eagles op Leeuwarden zijn. De eerste vliegers kunnen daar maandag al wel mee beginnen, volgens de oorspronkelijke planning. Ik verwacht dat ze die paar extra weken dat ze hier zijn, maximaal willen benutten. En bovendien: in 2016 vlogen de eerste 4 F-15's twee dagen later al missies, terwijl de tweede groep van 4 nog niet binnen was. Dat zouden ze nu dus ook weer kunnen doen.

Laten we het vooralsnog houden bij de laatste woorden van Hornet69: "Time will tell".
Een discussie over wat wij zien is niet van belang.

In english:

For the moment, the last words from Hornet69 are enough: "Time will tell."
A discussion about what we (like to) see isn't important.

See you at FF2018!

08.45 RCH536 just west of Den Helder level 180 descending.
08.45 RCH663 North of Ireland, so indeed ± an hour behind.
