It WAS flying on several occasions during FF19... no idea if this was related though! However, you can’t beat a Hunter... if only for the good looks!

Very true! However, from a PR point of view in my opinion is doesn't make sense to show a picture of a 65 year old historical plane to illustrate such a high tech exercise. In addition, they probably didn't have a clue... :mrgreen:

Just wondering (at the verge of gossip...): Is there a change that extra Dutch F-35’s form Luke will be flown in? The thought crossed my mind considering the training opportunity with a squadron building up to IOC.
From a personal point of view I wouldn’t mind numbers 3-8 on Dutch soil for a brief period [Gosip mode off]

You can forget it, only F-009 en 010 are planned to fly, F-011 will arrive in second half of March but has to be accepted first, so first operational flight somewhere in April

Maybe a stupid question.
But can it still be canceled due to the corona virus?
Since several countries participate.
