During a visit in august 2017 at Norvenich, our guide told us that the unit will be deployed with 8 aircraft to Leeuwarden in April. So expect (again) some german Eurofighters for FF.

Depends a bit on your style but about 70-300 should get you there. For a proper banking shot you're looking at 400m+
