Hi Geert,


I passed you interesting information to the KB authorities so let's cross our fingers that they can arrange a fly by.

Regards,



Daniel

As the French M2000 are also not on the list for Friday at this moment, it is also possible that these will also arrive on Saturday.
Maybe Daniel can confirm any of this????????!!!!!!!

Hi Roberto,


Indeed the Czech delegation is only arriving on Saturday.
The Red Arrows will also land at KB on Saturday at 17h00L.
The French Mirage 2000's are indeed not confirmed yet. (Info will arrive today and I'll keep you posted) but there is more; the KB authorities are working hard to get 4 Mirage 2000 from 2/12 Picardie from Cambrai who in the morning are scheduled to have a 4v4 mission against 349 Squadron F-16AM's (airspace Northern France). However remaining fuel of the French aircraft will be the decisive factor.
Finally we'll also have a 7 Ship A-Jet will pass in the skies of KB with tri-colore smoke, after their rehearsal at Brussels!

Keep on checking the Photo Call 2008 page on http://www.baha.be" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; as today I will be updating it constantly as info comes in.

Best regards,



Daniel

Unfortunaly I won't be able to attend in the morning. I'm able to attend from 13.00 o'clock on 'till 16.00 o'clock though.
I read shuttle busses run from a parking nearby the F104. But, will those shuttles drive all day back and forward or are there only specific times the busses will drive?

Info is much appreciated!

Grt, Mike.

I really appreciate all the effort you are taking to make it still a nice event for the spotters. Maybe we can offer the Mirage pilots a lunch(stop) at Kaybee?

Sounds great, a little bit more info about the parking would be greatly appreciated. Last year we could park near the base which was simply perfect (I love parking near a base).

Is this still possible if we arrive early or will everybody have to park at the other parkinglot and do we all have to use the Shuttle buses?

What's a photocall like at Kleine Brogel? Are there stands to get something to eat? What can I expect?

Not one of my best, dark and gloomy weather, some sunny spells but not many.... still going through about 2300 shots (I was experimenting a lot with my 40D)
