Fully correct! propably one of the best photographing opportunities in the
Netherlands ever. Very sad this place was closed because some youngsters felt the need for throwing stones, arson en left the place behind like a refuse dump. :evil: Thanks a lot, guys.

in 1988 I was 21-years old...In my previous reply I was talking about people in the age of probably 13 up to 18-years old.
When there was nothing to do at EHSB they were acting like little kids and
'screwed' a very nice spottingplace...probably the best one at the time! :cry:

You are so right Ernesto. For some time there was a rumour the BIC was to be located at the fire gate to keep an eye on the "dagjesmensen" and so trying to keep the FOD under control, but it was not to be......

Here some less frequent visitors:

By the way, the two Marineflieger F-104's were at the Open Dag at 1st September 1984. The SP-13 was at the static display.

P.Terlouw,

The Caribou! What a fantastic visitor! The pic of the Lightning is great
and the 2(!) Bronco's are rare! I never saw them during their operational
life!

Thank's for sharing! :D
