Re: Dutch F-16s delivery to Bulgarian AF imminent

OK
004/010 (AM) and 067/210 (BM) are at Charleroi
018 (AM) and 064 (BM) have been at Lajes since mid-December
019/366 (AM) and 209/368/369/882 were at Lakeland, 5 of these en-route to Lajes 21JAN
So 1 of these last 6 numbers is grande-kaputt at Lakeland?
(12 - 4 = 8 ) :D

Reach81 went up north to Nantucket, dropping of NAF625 most likely, made a U-turn and went south again. Just made a T&G at Charleston AFB 18:55Z

Re: Lajes (LPLA/TER) 2023 MIL

Thanks for the heads-up Piet. Looks like RCH83 flew McDill-Bangor and landed just now, not dragging anything over.

Re: 2022 : RNLAF Open Days / Open Dagen Luchtmacht ?

It was also a tool to attract new staff, but not so anymore Why is that? AFAIK there is still a huge shortage of personnel. Very much so unfortunately Patrick, but they have seen the luchtmachtdagen does not attract new staff anymore. They are exploring other channels, but with the general shortage...

Re: 2022 : RNLAF Open Days / Open Dagen Luchtmacht ?

For 2023 only 'Marinedagen' in July. Discussion still going on within RNLAF whether 'luchtmachtdagen' will come back as before since organizing it puts too much strain on air base personnel and a lot of civil works are going on at Leeuwarden, Volkel, etc. in the coming years. It was also a tool to a...

Re: Dutch F-16s delivery to Bulgarian AF imminent

Thanks for picking this up Piet. Reading the NOTAM... A) is Santa Maria FIR, could you guide me through the B) and C) timings, is this the reservation for their FIR only and therefore approx arrival time Lajes is between those times? Since 1458z to 1907z is too short a timeframe to fly from Lakeland...

Re: Dutch F-16s delivery to Bulgarian AF imminent

Draken lost their ADAIR contract at Nellis this June (a one year extension was not executed by the USAF), so the F-16s are not needed now. Delay for one or two years could mean time to help Bulgaria with a stop-gap measure to start F-16 operations before their first 8 F-16Vs (8 ordered/8 options) wi...

Re: Dutch CH-47F

Indeed the CH-47Fs are formally 'rebuilt' into the new CAAS versions. More like the Germand and Danish "new" Super Lynx at the time though.... Anyway, I visited Gilze yesterday and got some more information on the old Deltas. Indeed a batch has been sold to a civilian US company that is going to us...

LUX voor een tankstop (Woensdrecht was te duur om af te toppen), daarna door naar Cairo voor een nachtstop en daarna naar NBO, de nieuwe homebase. Eigenaar kwam zelf het toestel afhalen.
