Yes there will be a Frisian Flag in 2020.

Dates are not yet confirmed. Assuming that the organisers will stay away from flying on days like Good Friday, Easter Monday and King's Day, my guess would be March 23 to April 3.

Since the second midlife upgrade, all FinAF F-18C/D are designated F/A-18C/D :wink:

Kijk, zo leer je weer eens wat! :wink:
For my own records: is there a list of 2nd midlife upgrade completion of individual tailnumbers? Perhaps I have seen some F/A-18s which I (not knowingly) logged as F-18...

Is there a chance that Norwegian F-35s will participate? Or are they all in the US?

Gerucht !!!!

CA ANG F-15's gaat mogelijk in 2020 na Europa voor tourtje.
Niet bevestigd dat het ook na Frisian Flag is en ook nog niet bevestigd dat het zo is.
Diegene kan er nog niet veel over uitlaten...dus wachten het wel af
