Re: Wunstorf 2021

According to the tracking sites 54+13 (GAF308) has just gone over TLV Westbound, having been downrange since 12th Jan, unless I missed it.

Re: List of numbers F-16 BAF

BAF501 (FA-89/44F109) has just flown past my window at 14,900'. Unfortunately due heavy scattered cloud I could not tell if it was a solo (and if I should find out that FA-126 was it's unseen buddy.... :censored: :censored: )
The NAF43 (T-235) was presumably doing the tanking.

Perhaps if F-15E REOs were similarly adept, the USAF could've got six across the Atlantic yesterday :lol:

54+03 & 54+05 are tracking NNE from Madrid as we speak! Hopefully the 03 will be able to carry the refueling pods :wink:

The 54+23 was spotted westbound yesterday (from Tel Nof), but was a bit too high!

Re: Nevatim AFB Israel (LLNV) 2020

As noted elsewhere Enduring Lightning III took place Monday 12th Oct, with at least two HL F-35As (14-5097 & 15-5122 "466FS" appeared in stock shots) brought up from Al Dhafra by an unidentified KC-10 and refueled over Israel by KC-135R 00347 out of El Udeid.

Ramat David Israel (LLRD) 2020

The closure of 117 sqn yesterday probably signals the end of F-16C block 30 operations in the Israel Air Force (IAF); 115 sqn hosted a mission leadership course at Ovda last week but lockdown restrictions meant it was not possible to check which aircraft they were using. It is unlikely the IAF would...

The squadron will reform next year on F-35As at Nevatim, and also next year both 101 & 105 from Hatzor will move up to Ramat David. Due to Covid-19 r...

Unusual visitor here on 10th Sept was USNavy C-40 168981 as CNV6609.The Clipper was to/from LICZ where it is tempbased. The ongoing 5 year IAF plan calls for the relocation of the resident F-16C/Ds to Ramat David during 2021 and an increase of "Special Ops" assets to be based at Hazor. The recent re...
