312 SQN should participate.

Other rumours were; F-15, F-16 F-18, Rafale and (EF-2000?) as I can remember.

The participating aircraft rumours came direct from the planning cell, but that was already back in September. So we have to see if nothing is changed in the mean time..

I hear something about Aviano F-16s, Polish Fulcrums, French Mirages and navy Rafales and Canadian Hornets. If true it will be a good edition! Add some Dutch and possibly Norwegian F-35s and it will definately be worth the journey 'up North' :-)

Daar moeten nog een husje Duitse EF2000's en KLu F16's bij (en geen Noren heb ik begrepen)
EART2022 is dit jaar trouwens vanaf Wunstorf in dezelfde periode

Frisian Flag has an overlap with the Cold Response exercise in Norway so I wouldn't put my money on anything Scandinavian.....

Finnish AF F-18 could also be on the list as well…

How trustworthy is your source? Hearing something could quite litterally mean someone says "it would be cool if..." and you interpreting it as "i'm hearing about..." (I'm not saying you are). I kinda doubt about the Canadians and Fulcrums, and also about AV Vipers because Jordy said they were talking about F15s in the planning room (and I don't think they will be from another nation than the US, nor will the US come with several sqns).

Basically I'm saying I'll have to see it before believing.

Indeed I remember F-15’s, but that info was already back in September ‘21, but things can change… So we have still to wait for a few weeks.

Next week I will try to contact the planning room again.

De reactie van Roberto lijkt de geruchten echter wel grotendeels te bevestigen. En zoals bekend zit hij ook redelijk dicht op het vuur

In general quite trustworthy. Definately nothing like "it would be cool if..." involved. But no guarantees obviously. It is still military aviation.

Heerlijk om de deelnemers discussie te lezen. Voor mij persoonlijk maakt het niets uit wat er komt zolang er maar iets komt :) . En ik moet er toch ruim twee uur voor in de auto zitten om daar te komen (en natuurlijk ook weer ruim twee uur terug). Natuurlijk hoop ik op bijzondere deelnemers welke nog niet eerder aan Frisian Flag hebben deelgenomen. Mocht het zo zijn dat de reguliere deelnemers meedoen, ook dan zal ik genieten van een of meerdere dagen van deze oefening. En ik denk met mij heel veel andere spotters/fotografen.

@Patrick dirksen
Great! You never know with some people on the forums nowadays, that's why I'm asking ;)

@Hornet69
Absolutely! I love this excercise and whatever comes is good enough for me, enjoying 2 massive waves a day, even it would have been only Dutch F-16s (which is of course no longer possible with such a large number) I would be happy.

Ik kon het op internet zo snel niet vinden, maar wordt tijdens Frisian Flag de Vliehors Range gebruikt?

Zit te denken aan een klein tripje naar Texel in April en misschien dat dan te combineren met een dagje aan de Noordkant van het eiland wat actie op de range te fotograferen. 600mm zal toch wel genoeg zijn :P
