Yes, you are right! I stand corrected :oops:
..... obviously April Fools Day is more appropriate for such a visit

Gents,

Good to see all those old pictures, it takes me back to the place where I was 'formed' !!
Regarding the b/w picture taken at the gate at Metz, I took that one.

I also still have many pictures here of which I only have prints, and of which I am sure they are not in the 'official' archive.
Once I've figgured out how to digitalize them, I will post them.

I'm sure there are many, many more pictures out there.

As for the CD, Roel, both Chris and I are heavilly interested !

By the way, it's Dimitri instead of Dimitry.
No harm done.....

Keep posting those pics, these are the most fun I've had recently !

I guess via the iron thing on the far left, this seems to get very close to the wing. But about the canopy.....?? :shock:

Hey guys,
Just a question ....
Is this a Hans van der vlist thing he is in almost every picture.

I worked with hans and he visited me when he was here at hill AFB.
Anyway I hope to see more pics of SSB spotters.
Maybe there are a few floating around with me in it who knows.

See ya'll later

Hi Henk,

Yep that is me again standing in the Lim. Picture was taken August 24, 1991 in Poznan, near a big bridge over the river. This aircraft was last noted in 1993. Unfortunately the real id of this aircraft is not known :evil: , but I tried real hard :D :D

Groetjes aan Debby en de hondjes !


Hans
