Als het goed is dan zouden de meeste van deze choppers vanuit Polen/Powidz overkomen naar Gilze. Het plan is dat ze een tussenstop maken in Holzdorf en daarna naar Roth. Roth is wel een rare bestemming omdat het behoorlijk omvliegen is. Misschien dat ze daar blijven overnachten?? Om dan de volgende dag via Nörvenich of Spang naar Gilze te komen vermoet ik. We gaan het zien.

I guess for the Chinooks the best spot will be the main runway in use, today expect to be 10. But if there aren't much wind conditions they can also come in via the 28.

I hope you are right, that means we got more choppers than planned. The following left behind in Germany:
CH-47F: 16-08198, 16-08199, 16-08200, 16-08202, 16-08467
UH-60L: 90-26260, 94-26555
HH-60M: 11-20352, 13-20613
AH-64E: 14-01014, 17-03117, 17-03122, 17-03123, 17-03124, 17-03146, 17-03147, 17-03173, 17-03178, 17-03179, 17-03186, 17-03187

It could be possible that CH-47F 14-08162 (on loan to B/1-214AVN) is traveling with them. No ID on your fifth H-60 but we let us surprise this afternoon. :lol: :lol:

Greetzzz,
Eric

Excuses, big chance I've missed it somewhere but:

1: Are all helo's parked at the 02/20 runway? Or some somewhere else.
2: Any info available on when the first helo's are planning to leave for Vlissingen? (because of the travelling time to GR for me)

Thanks!!
