Re: Bezuinigingen op Defensie: wat denken wij?

Verder denk ik: Ik vermoed dat Leeuwarden gewoon open blijft, wellicht 1 squadron F-16s eraan op Volkel. Verder reductie aan te schaffen opvolger F-16 (ik vermoed rond de 50 stuks) Als de aan te schaffen opvolger van de F-16 50 zal zijn (en geloof me, dat als het de JSF wordt dit getal nog hoog is....

Re: Peruvian Air Force is to get 12 newly-built Twin Otters

Re: Besluit over sluiting vliegbasis Leeuwarden in maart 2011...

Tja... ik heb al ergens eerder iets geschreven in topic "Vervanging van F-16...." en het lijkt mij meer dan logisch (helaas!) dat als de besluit genomen wordt om minder Joint Strike Fighters (mogelijk zelf minder dan 50), dan is het simpelweg niet rendabel om twee vliegbasis open te houden met dit t...

Re: Vervanging F-16's

Hoe het ook zal zijn.... feit is dat de eerder genoemde aantal van 85 never nooit zullen komen naar Nederland..... en bij 50 of minder toestellen kan je jezelf gaan afvragen of het dan nog wel rendabel is om twee vliegbasis operationeel te houden :shock: Ben er zeker van dat die discusie er zeker ga...

Re: Alverca (LPAR) - 2010 MIL

very nice report, long time ago that I saw a report from OGMA. But..... only FAP F-16's? No Alouettes, Alpha Jets or TB-30's? In the passed the OGMA hangars were stuffed with 80 Portuguese AF aircraft!!!

Good old days are gone...

De Chilenen hadden alleen de eerste keer vrije keus. De 18 kisten die momenteel verkocht worden zijn gelukkig de "kneusjes" van de KLu volgens ingewijden, waaronder veel vlieguren. Jaja. dat geloof jij zelf..... de Chilenen krijgen de eerste keer de betere toestellen, en bij de tweede fase de "kneu...

No one knows if those two other ex AdlA Tucano's are for Mauritania too, known is that Mauritania and Chad will receive four and two Tucano's respectively.
