Kind regards,

Stafsels

According to info from EHEH this one will NOT participate, they would send observers only, but even these are not coming

Ze ZOUDEN inderdaad komen. Helaas nu niet meer...
De bron die Scramble gebruikte was een valide,
alleen veranderen soms dingen in de aanloop naar een oefening...

EHEH does not organize this exercise. EDA / EATC does. And they confirm a UAE A330 MRTT from UAE as a participant.

Je mag geloven wat je wilt, EATC zit op EHEH. Men kent elkaar daar goed. Professioneel wel te verstaan.

Dus als daar uit de goed geinformeerde wandelgangen (dus niet zomaar roddel) naar buiten komt dat men daar nu geen personen meer verwacht uit de Verenigde Arabische Emiraten (zelfs geen observers meer),
dan is de kans dat je de hoofdprijs wint in de Staatsloterij groter dan dat de UAEAF opeens wel komt opdagen voor deze oefening...

Lijkt mij ook logisch dat ze niet komen als de Saudi & UAE in Yemen tanker support van de USAF gebruikt en er voor moet betalen.

Nederlandse F-16's tanken ook niet exclusief bij KLu KDC-10's. Dit artikel zegt niks over de inzetbaarheid van de UAE A330MRTT's, hooguit indirect iets over de beschikbaarheid van een tanker voor een oefening.

Is the Italian B767 still planned to take part in the exercise?

Yes.

Here's logs Eindhoven from yesterday and today, to get an idea of operating times of the tankers:

Good luck and happy spotting.

Hi,

Just wondering...
In what way does it breaks down?

Italian KC-767A: F-18 and spanish Tyffies
KDC-10: Polish and KLu F-16's
C-135FR: F-15
A310: German Tyffies and rest

Or did it otherwise breakdown?

Kind regards,

Stafsels
