Waarschijnlijk weer zwarte omheining rondom de basis in December.

SPECULATIE-modus AAN :wink:
...mogelijk gaat dit wel ergens gebeuren de komende maanden:

The United States has accelerated the fielding of a more accurate version of its mainstay nuclear bomb to NATO bases in Europe,
according to a U.S. diplomatic cable and two people familiar with the issue.

The arrival of the upgraded B61-12 air-dropped gravity bomb,
originally slated for next spring,
is now planned for this December,
U.S. officials told NATO allies during a closed-door meeting in Brussels this month, the cable reveals.


The move, which involves replacing older weapons with the newer version
at various storage facilities in Europe for potential use by U.S. and allied bombers and fighter jets,
comes amid heightened tensions over Russia’s threats to use a nuclear weapon in Ukraine
and growing concerns that the West needs to do more to deter Moscow from crossing that line.
Two people familiar with the issue of the upcoming shipment to Europe confirmed the accelerated timeframe reported in the diplomatic cable. They asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the issue.
...behalve eventuele C-17 bewegingen zou bovenstaande verder weinig bijzonders opleveren, vermoed ik.

Hooguit eventueel meer activiteit van toeschouwers
die niet erg vliegtuig-minded zijn :roll:

SPECULATIE-modus UIT :wink:

De B61 storage ligt toch vlak langs de N264? De C17 kan dan toch “gewoon” op de parallel staan waarbij alleen dat deel afgerasterd wordt? (Of is dat lastiger…)

Er wordt op Volkel een nieuw hot cargo platform aangelegd, deze wordt ook omgeven door een hoge wal (aldus openbare documenten), maar deze ligt aan de andere kant van de beide banen tov het gedeelte wat jij bedoelt. Is daar aan de N264 niet alleen de QRA area?

Did anything like this happen in Volkel?
Planning a visit next week for a few days of spotting, would be devastating to arrive to a "privacy filter"
