Soesterberg 1958... USAF Starfighters

Post by eriktex »

.
Found some pictures in my dad's legacy. It was a bit of a search, but it seems there was a flying event at Soesterberg on (Saturday) July 5th 1958. A couple of USAF Starfighters were on a promotion tour!!! The Thunderbirds were also present with F-100s.

These F-104B's also visited Bierset about a week earlier.

Never new that USAF Starfighters had actually visited Holland!

Hope you like 'm :wink:

Wow! That's really special. The F-100s are from the Skyblazers, the USAFE team based at Bitburg.
