Re: Defile 14 Juillet 2023 Paris

A few of us will be going to Paris for the defilé, but we have never been to Evreux before in the period around 14 Juillet. Suppose we go the 13th, could we expect flying activity, maybe some repetition, or is it just a matter of arriving aircraft for the defilé that day? Obviously our main aim wou...

Re: Anatolian Eagle 2023

In addition NF-5A 3072/2 and 3046/? remained on the flightline after the team went airborne on Wednesday. Also I strongly believe that the F-16’s listed under “based” other than 132 Filo were assigned to their respective units. They all operated from the western shelterarea rather than the eastern a...

The amount of A-10C at Jagel could change from twelve in the first week to six in the second. The adding number will come from Lechfeld.
Herby, do you mean that six Jagel A-10’s will transfer to Lechfeld? I am confused what “the adding number will come from Lechfeld” means?

Afternoon mission +

F-16AM 247 RJord.AF
F-16BM 237 RJord.AF
F-16BM 681 RJord.AF - Old Jordanian mks
F-16AM 250 RJord.AF
Thanks for posting your log.

Note that F-16BM 681 should be 670. I made the same mistake.

Still a pitty that Indian military aircraft do not carry unit markings.

Thanks Hans and indeed, only saw them once with squadron markings. They were the 20sq aircraft that deployed to Red Flag in 2008.

Re: Batajnica Open Day - Serbia, 22th april

Great additions Ben!

A friend of mine read one of the Orao’s in the Moma hangar as 25506 which was previously at Surcin in the museum.

Also note that a number of aircraft you refer to as ex-YAF are actually ex-Serbia and Montenegro AF (ex SCG - Srbija i Crna Gora AF)

You forget the PA34 YU-VGI at the static. This is operated bij 138.tae

The 3 Gazelles in the hangar are 12837, 12894 & 12895. Next to them in the same hangar was a G4 Super Galeb 23741.

Re: Batajnica Open Day - Serbia, 22th april

I totally agree with Michel. I went to Serbia and I knew upfront it's not the most cheerful people in the world, especially the military and especially towards foreigners, let alone spotter. I know about the hassle some people had but it depended on the gate that you chose so there was probably some...
