Spoke to one of the crew yesterday, and he mentioned about a Sunday departure, but as I said don’t shoot the messenger I’m really hoping for the Greek phantoms to depart this afternoon fingers crossed because I fly back home first thing tomorrow, anybody know of anything else departing this afternoon :?:

Do not expect the F-4's to depart on sunday, they have to fly via Aviano wich is closed on sunday. Expect an early mondaymorning departure of the Greek F-4's and Dutch F-35's (around 0800LT).

There is also a NOTAM active stating Aviano is closed all weekend because of runway maintenance work till early monday morning.

Does that mean the Italian F35s won’t leave today either?
