Thank Herby, for the recently posted detailed information regarding the last German Transall's. I will be in the area next Friday/Saturday, hopefully able to catch some :).
I was just wandering: after disbandment of LTG63, will the GFD continue to fly their Learjets from Hohn?

GFD will stay at Hohn and the base will be in the hand of TLwG 51 in the future with some 60 soldiers of a „Flugplatzstaffel“ staying here.
