Leeuwarden says (in Dutch) that the Mig's will be at LWD here as I understand it but the conversation (thereafter) is a bit confusing :roll:

So final conclusion is everything from Leeuwarden and only the A4's from Wittmund (i presume the guy who told me Mig29 from Wittmund was a bit confused)

Everything exept the A4's fly from Leeuwarden.
The Mig's are Polish.
Compromise is failure.

I thought they did this in the past with the F-15s from Lakenheath. One of the lessons learnt was that it didn't work.

There are plenty of exercises with operations from different airbases so it should work, like ACE in Norway/Finland/Sweden and JAWTEX in Germany.
But in the past we had TFW exercises in Denmark from 4 or 5 airbases and that was in the pre digital era

During a nice briefing by the PRO of Leeuwarden we heard that we will see also Polish F16's at Leeuwarden.
And at the same time as FF18 there will be an EART18 from Eindhoven with several tankers.

Only 8 Rafale i believe and NO BAF F16.
3x Polish Mig29 and i presume 6x EF18 like in 2015.
And also a DA20 will participate, but i presume this one is from COBHAM like always
