Is EART 2020 to be held at all,
concurrently with Frisian Flag 2020 :?:

A rumour (!) I heard this year was possible participation of an Aussie KC-30. Could make sense of course with the new Nato tanker fleet under way.
But once again, it's a rumour.

FWIW (don't shoot the messenger): https://twitter.com/warnesyworld/status ... 5440857088

"The EART (European Air Refuelling Training) exercise organised by the European Air Transport Command will not be hosted in The Netherlands in 2020. My bet is it will be in Spain linked to a TLP Exercise later in year. When it will be nice and warm. #EATC"

EATC is striving to become a center of expertise for air-to-air refuelling and intends to offer to the nations a toolbox to plug an EART training into any large fighter exercise in Europe.

Time will tell.

Dit jaar zal er geen EART (European Air Refueling Training) tankeroefening op Eindhoven plaatsvinden,
tegelijkertijd met luchtmachtoefening ‘Frisian Flag’.

Dit werd bevestigd door een woordvoerder van EATC.

:(

Perhaps another edition of EART at Eindhoven in 2021 :?:
