Looking forward to that D especially, those are very rare at airshows!
Does anyone know the ETD of the F15's
? Will Friday be the arrival day or will this be on Thursday?

Not sure if this was covered here already, but keep in mind that on Sunday a number of relevant routes in the Eindhoven/Valkenswaard area are closed due to the Market Garden commemoration;

Hello,
a source on German Flugzeugforum says, that the expected F-15C/D´s from Lakenheath have cancelled their participation for Kleine Brogel. :(
Anyone more info?

This morning I send an e-mail through the website of the Belgian Air force with the question about the F-15's.
I received a message back that the F-15 are still coming :-)

Hiya,

Ehm, something isn't clear to me and maybe someone can shed some light on this. The spottersday is on the 12th, will parking then be at the base like previous years, or will we be ferried to and fro from Parking area A?

Just asking because there will be fewer visitors on the spotterdays than on the actual airshow. And I can't find my answer on the official site.

Just like previous years. Parking is near the side entrance of KB. And then walking on foot towards the spotting area.
Athe roundabout with the F-104 turn left and the follow the many arrows.
