I only got the info about no TLG31 participation, but 74 aircraft are always nice. Do you know the total amount of aircraft (6+6 each maybe)?

2 waves per day - one in the morning, one in the afternoon (subject to weather and world affairs obviously)

https://www.agl-fullstop.nl/index.php/n ... ulp-ff2018
suggests there will again be
"paid parking" on the western end of the airbase.
Organised by local volunteers.

Also on "arrival days" Thursday 5 and Friday 6 April according to
https://www.agl-fullstop.nl/index.php/n ... ulp-ff2018 .

In 2016 and 2017 this "parking scheme" worked very well! :)
Was it two or three euros per day per car :?:

It certainly kept the neighbours and the local (military) authorities happy. :wink:
:roll: :loud: :|

The SIS summary now announces the arrival of the 12 F-15's at March 15th. This is not correct I suppose?

I also heard week 11 some time ago so I suppose the 15th could be correct.

Is there anything known about the actual eta of the F-15's yet? If indeed the 15th, any clue what time they would arrive?

In previous years they arrived roughly between 1500 and 1800 LT. Mostly six each on two different days.

Mind though that they arrived almost always with delays in the past three years, ranging from just one day up to five days due to bad weather or high waves en route!
