Re: Syrian Mig 29 to Libya ?

Sounds like very fake news. MiG-29's have insufficient range to make it to Libya without stopovers in hostile areas. They would have to be shipped in secret, along with the personnel and material that is needed to support them.

EADS pitched a SEAD/ECR-version of the Typhoon, which would have to be developed first. AFAIK, the Growler is the only off the shelf solution on the western market.

Re: Spotting in Greece - A Warning

Fascinating story, thanks for sharing. With things heating up between Greece and Turkey, I can imagine security forces and locals will be even more strict at the moment.

Re: Gilze-Rijen speculatie

Let op, het gaat om de reserveveld functie en niet dat er totaal geen fighters meer zouden mogen komen. Het artikel is eigenlijk niet zo heel eenduidig te interpreteren. Er staat dat fighters geen noodlanding meer mogen maken en als dat al niet eens meer mag zie ik ook niet zoveel ruimte om nog op ...

Mi-28 Havocs would be unlikely. Do you mean Ka-52 Alligators or AH-64 Apaches perhaps? Two weeks ago a nationwide exercise called "Kader" was held in Egypt.
