Welcome to Scramble
Another new online edition of your favourite spotters magazine, with lots of civil and military updates and news, movements, show reports, articles and more! The Soviet Updates are absent this month, they will be back next issue.
Again we have three articles for you to dig in. Our editor Anton Homma took the retirement of the last airline on European soil to operate the Fokker 100 as a cue for an overview on this Dutch heritage. Warbird editor Gert Jan Mentink has written an excellent article on a US Navy Connie that crashed on Antarctica, with the apt title Pegasus‘ icy grave. Reader Marco Muntz has provided us with all the details of the Caspian Masters – Turkmenistan’s M346.
The March 2024 edition will be available from Sunday 3 March and the deadline for photos is Tuesday 27 February. (RAAF E-7A Wedgetail A30-002 was a surprise visitor at Brussels on 18 January 2024, it was photographed by Jochem Jottier)
