Hi,

A bit off-topic, since they are not my best shots (bad scans from prints, made from slides), but two from me;

Woensdrecht 1992, former K-3057
Image

Twenthe 1984

Greetings,
Stefan

Two Indonesian F-5's, a F-5E and a F-5F got updated by SABCA in Charleroi in 1998. This one arrived on April 28th at Florennes, but nobody knew.
A day later after the TLP aircraft arrived it suddenly appeared from behind the trees and made a local test flight from Florennes.

Must say, it is probably in the top three of my nicest spotting moments!!

Best regards, Rob.
