Re: Royal Jordanian Falcons question

Aircraft are owned by Royal Jordanian Airlines and flown by air force pilots. I recentely have asked the same question on msf. Though they are civil registered and are owned to a civil operator they are flown by military pilots. They are being transferred by mil C-130's. So I now count the extra's ...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 14-16 July 2017

Nothing from Ukraine on my list until RIAT announce it :) Japanese 767 based on Mode-S logs from Japan and it being the "normal" callsign. At 11:25Z on the 11th, KC-767J 87-3601 is in the Roma area and if it's destination is Fairford today should be arriving around 14:00Z. Seems to have landed at B...

Runway is in the same heading as L'Avenue des Champs Elysees. At least that has been the reason since years ago.

It is striking that the Apache helicopter was sent to the plane.

It is after all an official task of F16's in Volkel to follow suspicious aircraft.
From what I understand from defensie.nl, the QRA is at Leeuwarden at the moment?

Re: KLu Apaches against Somali pirates?

Just asked the 301 Squadon personel at Navy days today what the situation is at the moment about this "idea". First they had to be reminded what/who Rotterdam and Johan de Witt were, Then a light turned on in their head about what I was talking about. The answer is: it is not going to happen as the ...

Maybe a bit off-board, but does anyone know why L800 had its flag waving half-mast around noon today?

That is how to behave as Navy if your Air Force friends drop by at your party. The F-16s were hardly visible due to the smoke-curtain that is part of the amphibious landing. :oops: Only the flares could be seen.

Re: Vlootdagen 24/25 june

Just a heads-up for who wants to go: The Navy days bit of the event will close at 17.00, the Sail event will go on after that time (well, today not much was happening during the evening, but it was accessible). Sail is North of the vice admiraal Moormanbrug, Navy days is east. Also the fisheries and...

Off base spotting it is then. Depending on the runway in use, it might not be the biggest problem.
