F-35s two weeks at Volkel from 9-11

Post by patrick dirksen »

Hi, as probably well known, four F-35s (meaning all operational ones...) will be practising from Volkel from November 9 till 20. See

Asking for the obvious, but is the departure time already known? I can imagine they will take off from Leeuwarden somewhere Monday afternoon, then fly a mission before landing at Volkel. Confirmation would be nice though, plus ETD (difficult to judge for me because of the current evening flying).
Cheers,

The exercise would last until Friday November 20, when the aircraft will fly back to Leeuwarden.
Grtz,
