Not correct. They are, but under very strict restrictions.

You can scrap 617sqn and CA F15's from the list.
USAF will only participate with LN Eagles, but from Lakenheath.
French navy Rafales will only operate from CdG, but an occasional visit is always possible.
You can ad some Polish F16's and French M2000's

Why there? It could also be Amsterdam or Rotterdam.
Because that is her home port.. I thought, but it appears to be Toulon! :mrgreen:

Hi all!

On a normal day frisian flag : take off at 09.00, recovery at 11.00 and second wave than 13.00 take off and 15.00 recovery or will it be different this year?

No tanker support with shorter airtime?

Kind regards,

Stafsels

Why not interesting? This topic is about the Frisian Flag 2020 exercise, which this year is bigger than the assets operating out of Leeuwarden.
@TommyW: Planned are F-15C/D operating out of Lakenheath.

Although the F-15s and Rafales aren't operating out of Leeuwarden doesn't mean they could not occasionally drop by.
In case of emergency, Leeuwarden is much closer to the exercise area than Lakenheath, and much easier to land on than an aircraft carrier.

FN Rafales 29 & 45 amongst others were training with IAF F-16Is from 107 sqdn "in (over) the eastern med" earlier this week (credit Times of Israel). The Sufas flew from Ovda.
