Re: RSAF museum Riyadh (Saudi Arabia)

Thanks Benno. We checked the cockpit of the one outside (the canopy is blacked out but we could get a hand with a phone inside as the canpoy wasn't fully closed). However no c/n plate of call plate or anything else useful was found unfortunately.

World Defense Show, Riyadh (Saudi Arabia)

Hi all, This month the World Defense Show was organised for the second time in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. My collection of Saudi military aircraft wasn’t too big yet, and especially the types that don’t leave their country were missing. Apart from that I had never visited Saudi Arabia before, so the show...

Re: Jan 2023 US govt: Turkey can get 40 new F16s if it does not block Sweden/Finland NATO entrance...

When push comes to shove Turkey has the second largest military of NATO so in any eventual war NATO gets dragged into, we will definitely need the Turks to commit their troops and weapons. Yes, and I am afraid when push comes to shove, Erdogan will not commit. Definately not for their neighbour Gre...

Re: scramble gaat digitaal

Dank voor de reactie! Dat er geen stap terug naar papier komt, hoe jammer ik dat ook vind, had ik ook niet meer verwacht hoor ;-) Maar wellicht is het wel een optie om een enquête onder de abonnees te houden over die pdf-variant, inclusief de extra kosten die daarmee samen zouden gaan? De huidige a...

Köln-Bonn (EDDK/CGN) 2024

Question: on a mailinglist it is mentioned both A.340s of the FBS are stored since August last year. Is this correct, have they been withdrawn?

Re: EHLW 11-01-2024 MIL

Perfect op tijd is inderdaad de F-039 geland. Direct daarvoor ging de F-035, nog zonder verdere markings, de lucht in, en na een eerste doorstart van de nieuwste aanwinst van de KLu gingen de F-014 (nog steeds met speciale staart) en de F-022 omhoog voordat de F-039 echt zijn wielen voor het eerst o...

According to the tour schedule of the D-Day squadron, they will also participate in the RIAT. https://www.ddaysquadron.org/2024-legacy-tour The June 21-27 schedule makes an appearance at RIAT very very uncertain. Indeed, most probably only the European based Dakotas will participate in RIAT. Unfort...

Ah, ok. "Het enige dat zeker is, is dat niks zeker is", zoiets? ;-)
