Re: M-346/T-346 for Royal Netherlands Air Force?

TwoStep wrote:The KLu is looking at leasing M346s for things like CAS training, because F-35 flying hours are so expensive. Consideration is also being given to operating the type (M346) for QRA duties.
That would be the wisest decision for the Klu in years.....
So I guess not.

Lets hope not. They caused this to happen.

Valt nog mee dat niet iemand 112 gebeld heeft toen hij een vliegtuig naar benden zag komen. Vervolgens alle hulpdiensten erop af. :roll:

Re: 5 mei 1995 grote formatie

In 1988 op deelen was er een flypast van 74 kisten, 49 F16s, 21 NF5s en 4 F15s Dat waren nog eens tijden! Heeft iemand van die formatie nog mooie foto's? Ik dacht overigens dat er toen 75 kisten in de lucht waren om het 75-jarig bestaan van de Klu te herdenken. Was die 75e uitgevallen? Wat ik me oo...

Re: 07april2020 PIC: A-10 Thunderbolt Warthog wheels up land

Indeed. Perhaps an indication of a complete electrical failure rendering the "emergency stores jettison" button inoperable? It is weird. The emergency system is usually on a completely separate circuit, so it functions independantly in case of an electrical problem. Also most of these systems have ...

Indeed. I am surprised he didn't jettison the misiles before making a landing.

Re: Corona: all KLM pax Boeing 747 Jumbos retired in April 2

There will be very little opportunity or reason for any extras or festivities. That would send a wrong signal at this moment. I would not be surprised if KLM is nationalized by the Dutch government within a few weeks. Just like they did with ABN a couple of years ago. KLM/Schiphol is too important f...

Het gaat snel. Buitenlandse toeristen moeten nu ook Israël verlaten. Ze moeten binnen een paar dagen het land verlaten hebben.

Re: Canon body

Het ligt heel erg aan je manier van fotograferen. Ben je iemand die continu de vinger op de ontspanknop houdt en na een vliegshow graag zijn opnames selecteert uit twee of drieduizend opnamen? Met vrijwel elke moderne DSLR body kun je prima fotograferen. De camera's zijn snel genoeg, v.w.b. opnamen ...

Re: EHLE 20-11-2019

Zag het toestel net zeer laag over de A6 komen toen ik daar reed. Dalend in bocht met landingsgestel uit. Kon eerst bijna niet geloven dat het echt een F27 was. Mooie kist.
