Re: Charleroi/Brussels South (EBCI) 2020 Mil

Hi Joost, According a message on FC Blue61 KC135 out of Mildenhall only collected F16V 005 out of Tanagra and dropped him off at Charleroi. It had a Retro callsign. The message also said the SW's hadn't moved. What could have happened Blue61 had, besides 005, possible SP stragglers from a former de...

On the 4th USAF F-16's were heard on SABCA Ops freq and used them as an inflight freq. They went south and I believe to join with BLUE.
That same flight later on was back and went into Spangdahlem. Their callsign was Retro.

Re: Operational Dutch F-16's

From what I heard, next year several F-16's will be saved as they will be instructional airframes at the "Leerdocks" at Volkel, Leeuwarden, Woensdrecht and Eindhoven. This most likley will mean, that some OCU F-16's present at those leerdocks, will be reduced to scrap. Which F-16's are instructiuon...

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. This morning there wa...

F-16 showing as J-062 mode-s wise, currently airborne as COWBOY21. Not sure why it is removed from the operational list. Because this is her first flight since 2015! Jordy I know, but she was never (as far as I am aware) slated to be withdrawn. She lost her airworty certificate, and I believe a lot...

Re: Wie wat waar vliegt daar BELGIUM - 2020 CIV

Sun November 1st, two Australian aircraft are chatting along on 137.000; seems they are on a delivery flight and were asked the question why this route. The answer was they normally fly via the pacific but covid prevented that. It is another five days before they reach their destination. They are sh...

Re: 2 x KDC-10 (RCH700 & RCH701) : ''we have already pissed-off this lady enough''

They were talking about refueling themselves, not the B-52's. Believe the issue they mentioned earlier was difference between FAA and ICAO regulations and decided to cancel their AAR plans between each other. (My guess about AAR above populated area's or outside refuel track) They swapped positions ...
