Refreshing the archives!

Good fridays at Soesterberg airbase, these four one-o-fours visited on fridays. These airmen had a good weekend in Amsterdam and returned to Italy on mondays. :bday:

Got some more to come on this delicious thread.

More than once, these visits coincided with the 'HISWA' in Amsterdam (RAI).
