Interesting to see that the Ajets etc are often displayed on flight radar 24! You would expect them on adsb but not there. They use a eufie like silhouette for these aircraft, so take a look!

Jos, you mentioned 30+31 twice. Perhaps you meant to mention another (different) Eufi?

Thanks Ben! Indeed a slight typo of what 30+32 (QRA) must have been. Updated the log.

TLwG 71 Eurofighters will leave on 16.6. and 17.6. for Laage. Top Aces will go on 15.6. to Nordholz. The anual summer leave will last for ca. four weeks.

Unfortunately due to construction of a second fence on the west side of the base and a road planned to connect the new ATC Tower taking pictures undisturbed on the runway during easterly winds is no longer possible from the crash gate.

Noted today on 9.6. in the morning mission were:

TLwG 71 Eurofighter GS 30+30 (QRA), 30+78 (QRA), 30+82, 30+98 and 31+44 plus GT 30+02 and 30+71.

In the afternoon the following was noted:

GT 30+02, 30+05, 30+71 (came back with problems, emergency landing) plus GS 30+78 (QRA), 30+82, 30+86 (QRA), 30+98 and 31+44.

GS 30+28 departed for Manching with 30+89 in exchange coming back.

Top Aces A-4N C-FGZI/531 and both Alpha Jets were also active.

It was one of the better days at Wittmund because of the following approaching aircrafts (in the morning and afternoon in chronological order):

P-3C CUP 60+05 of MFG 3 2x t&g
44+65 Tornado IDS of TLwG 51 t&g
30+64 Eurofighter GS of TLwG 73 overflying
Tornado ECR 46+49 of TLwG 51 t&g
C-160D 50+76 of LTG 63 5x t&g
Eurofighter GS 31+01 of TLwG 31 overshoot
Tornado ECR 46+46 of TLwG 51 t&g

(Thanks to Andy B. for the log)

Nice to see reports, so thanks for posting.
In recent reports & pictures posted from Wittmund many of the EF2000’s don’t seem to have the badges on their tails. Anyone know why or any reason for this? Generally they appear to be fairly fixed at their bases within the GAF.

Thanks
Andy

TLwG 71 usually has their badge on the nose beneath the cockpit.

Only 30+40, 30+71 and 30+78 have additionally one on the fin.
