Gerrit, thank you for kicking this topic alive again!
I too was at TAM 84 several times but only took pictures once and unfortunately the quality of mine are very poor.
So also thanks for this clear view on this memorial event.

Also; how come the fire extinguishers look so modern next to the Mirage 3RDs? ;-)

Eleven of them actually made a farewell flight to Twenthe on that day, returning to Gilze-Rijen the next day via Deelen. Nice pics also of the Mirage 3Es. This was the first squadron exchange for 316sqn indeed. I always wondered why I only saw reports with the codes, not with the serials, but now I get it: these were really hard to read off in that early c/s. I had no numbers except 527/13-QA, plus codes 13-QF, 13-QH and 13-QK.
Best wishes,
Jonathan
Hi Jonathan/Gerrit,

I think I did not see an answer for the question about 13-QH. According to the excellent French Mirage III publication from DTU 547 was indeed 13-QH from 14jun68 until 21apr76.

Regards, Paul
For completeness sake, here are all the serials of the participating Mirages 3Es (in the squadron exchange from 10-19 September 1973): 527/13-QA, 545/13-QF, 547/13-QH, 516/13-QK

Best wishes,
Jonathan
