Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Old 80's pictures Military EHVB/EHRD/EHYB

Post by AK01 »

Just curious, anyone intrested in a new topic covering Military visitors to the Randstad? This should include Ypenburg /Valkenburg /Rotterdam and Amsterdam i guess. Soesterberg is sometimes considered to be inside the Randstad, but is allready covered in it's own topic.
Some examples :
Rotterdam:

Ypenburg, seconds before it's last touch down ever:

I made some pictures at Ypenburg during the Helicopter Rescue Competition back in 1970 ; here are two examples :

(1) RAF Whirlwind XP352 with Dutch Alouette III H-08
Image
(2) Danish Air Force RF-84F with the old Avio-Diepen hangar in the background

Although they are no 80s pics , I hope these are a welcome addition to this interesting Topic ! :lilangel:

Ah, thanx for explaining. Would love to see some more pictures from Ypenburg. Does anyone happen to have some shots from the airshows in the fifties and sixties?

Rotterdam Airport, 8 November 1983.
This visit of the last dinosaur was well worth the short trip from Valkenburg to Rotterdam. 533279 was at Valkenburg earlier that year, but during heavy rain. At Rotterdam, security was still nice to photographers, so we were allowed on the platform and even in the cockpit. Happy days.

Pieter, that C-1 Trader is magnificent! I'm green with envy. It's like you took the photo yesterday. This poor machine crashed soon after. :cry:

This was a Winter Reforger, started at Amsterdam with C141's etc in minus 8 to minus 10 degrees, moved onwards to Rotterdam with C130,s and C160's moving the troops onward to Germany.
I remember one C130 spent several days at RTM with a flat tire, this went flat due to frozen snow on the apron /taxitrack.
Another one:
