Re: Frisian Flag in 2020

Although the F-15s and Rafales aren't operating out of Leeuwarden doesn't mean they could not occasionally drop by.
In case of emergency, Leeuwarden is much closer to the exercise area than Lakenheath, and much easier to land on than an aircraft carrier.

Re: verstelbare vleugel F14 TOMCAT

De piloot heeft een HAT switch op de throttle (onder zijn duim) waarmee hij de vleugelstand kan instellen:
- Omhoog is Auto Mode
- Omlaag is Bomb Mode (55 graden)
- Naar voren is vleugels naar voren
- Naar achter is vleugels naar achter

ARMY-2019, Kubinka Airbase

Last week I visited the ARMY 2910 show with 4Aviation. Here are some pics from the Sunday airshow and Monday departures. Although it doesn't show in the pictures below, the weather wasn't all that good, with rain or rain showers every day, though Sunday and Monday had some sunny moments as well. #1 ...

Cougar at Larserveld glider airfield, Biddinghuizen

Yesterday, Cougar S-456 came in three times to drop off troops for their Airmobile exam. The troops have to make it to Schaarsbergen on foot, carrying a 40 kilogram backpack. The backpacks were carried in a sling net underneath the Cougar. After each drop, it came back for a low-level pass. #1 https...

Re: Anyone been to Keiv Recently?

I was there last year to visit Chernobyl, and also visited the State Aviation Museum in Kiev. There are two gates where you have a clear view of the runway and north-eastern taxiway of Zhuliany Airport.
Taking pictures was no problem when I was there.
Entrance fee is 50 uah (about 1,55 euro)
