Re: F-35 Lightning II developments

DOD / USN Naval Air Systems Command procurement contract mentions: Lot 13 RDAF 4 AMI 2 / Marina 3 Which should be AL-15/L-16 and BL-4 (mentioned as BuNo 169701) and BL-5/BL-6 Lot 14 RDAF 8 AMI 4 / Marina 5 [/quote] AMI / Marina numbers for LOT 13 & 14 are completely WRONG [/quote] Thank you for you...

Re: F-35 Lightning II developments

AF-275 is the next in sequence..... Also,the FY 18-54xx is till in doubt. Some mention AX-17/22 are 18-5441/5448 but that obvious is not correct. Others mention AL-13/14 being 18-5441/18-5442, but that leaves 18-5439/5440 unknown..... Can only mean one thing (I guess). It was reported before that A...

Re: Riga aviation museum in danger

Het museum wordt sinds vele jaren gerund door Viktor Talpa, de man waar de video mee opent. Hij lijkt wel of hij in een van de hutjes achterin het museum woont. De uitbreiding op termijn van Riga airport is logisch, Air Baltic doet het erg goed. Aangezien het museum voor het ambitieuze RIX Airport m...

Re: EHVK 13-11-2020

@flyboy waarom zouden de F35s in de middag op Leeuwarden landen? Het is toch een out of area oefening dus je bent op jezelf als je uitgezonden bent. Dan kan je niet op je homebase binnenvallen voor het weekend en toch een voldoende scoren... of dacht je aan een andere noodzaak?
