739 doesn't exist or should be a new one ( recoded) from the 8 additional former USAF D models delivered two years ago...

29.08.2019

The German And Italian EF2000(F-2000A) arrivals were,

30+73 EF2000 LW TLwG-75 GAFS01A
31+20 EF2000 LW TLwG-75 GAFS01B
30+56 EF2000 LW TLwG-75 GAFS01C
30+51 EF2000 LW TLwG-75 GAFS01D
30+47 EF2000 LW TLwG-75 GAFS02A
30+50 EF2000 LW TLwG-75 GAFS02B
30+74 EF2000 LW TLwG-75 GAFS02C
30+88 EF2000 LW TLwG-75 GAFS02D
30+65 EF2000 LW TLwG-75 GAFS03A
30+64 EF2000 LW TLwG-75 GAFS03B
MM7311 4-45 F-2000A AMI IAM0420A
MM7321 37-12 F-2000A AMI IAM0420B
MM7352 36-55 F-2000A AMI IAM0409B
MM7353 36-56 F-2000A AMI IAM0409A

There was also an AMI C-130J-30 support arrival in the shape of MM62189 46-55 from Pisa.

The IDF F-15s can be easily seen from the A607 at the Harmston end of the base. 3 can even easily be read off rom your car legally parked on the west side of this road.


Despite statements to the contrary, stepladders may be used, even on the wet side of the A15, but no stepladder is to be placed against the base perimeter fence.

Parking in the WAVE car park is free. A speed limit of 30 mph (51 kph) has been imposed on the A15 east of Waddington until 23 September, and there is also a ban on overtaking on this stretch of road.

Obey the rules, and there will be no problems.

No FW75 in the GAF, it should be FW73 from Laage AFB (the 10 Typhoons came from Laage and carry FW73 marking)
