Mombassa Int. airport, Kenya, F-5 F

A rather poor quality picture (made through a durty window) of this F-5F, in a line-up, leading other ones (F-5Es and one more F), during a short stop there. Due to the poor quality, I didn't mean to put it first. But as those aircraft are not so often seen, maybe it will be of some interest for som...

CRETA, off Rethymnon, 22-08-15 (Dutch Navy NH 90)

What a surprise to watch a Dutch Navy NH-90 training in Creta for my 2nd day over there.
It looks like she came there with a Fregate which was anchored at Souda Bay Naval Station.

Creta, Souda Bay, 26-08-15 (MIL)

A few of my holidays pictures in Creta, at Souda Bay air base (I wrote some explanations about locations and activities there on this forum, in the appropriate place, in "spotting, rest of Europe"). Nice place, nice weather, nice food, nice planes..., from EO-5C, EP-3E, P-3C, F-16 C/D to old T-33s. ...

Re: Chania (Souda Bay) LGSA 2015

Back from one week in Creta. There were lots of flying activities over there. I stayed at Rethymnon, 60 kms from Souda Bay. Last Saturday, we had a Dutch Navy NH-90 (N-318) flying around ships at low level. I suppose she came with one of the navy ships staying at Souda Bay. From Monday until today, ...

Re: melsbroek 23-8 mil

Coming back from holidays this afternoon, while we were landing, I saw this Chinook (or another Chinook) at Melsbroek.
It was parked too far (at the begining of the C-130s ramp, coming from the Police building) to read any number.

Thanks a lot.
My job sometimes brings me to Ukraine. I saw a few museums and exhibitions there, but never this one.

Re: Ukraine: nuclear Tu-95 bombers illegally sold...

I agree with you. But then, why does the Ukrainian prosecutor's release talk about the sale of " two strategic bombers Tu-95 MS, capable of carrying nuclear weapons " ? Either to make previous rulers look even worse then they already do by exagerating the situation while those planes didn't fullfill...

Re: Ukraine: nuclear Tu-95 bombers illegally sold...

Yes... As far as I know and remember from my visits, regarding Ukraine, at least two Tu-95s are/were at museums : One of those was lying in open-air for years at the Strategic aviation musuem of Poltova. The second one was, also in open-air, at the aviation museum of Lugansk (regarding what is left ...

Always nice to see old stuffs from Eastern Europe. Thanks ! The last time I visited the museum (about 2 years ago), there were also a Mig-21, a SAM Missile and a few military vehicules there. Did the Mig disappear ? Here, my pictures made at the time (not very good ones, but the way those items are ...

Does anybody know when they are supposed to leave ?
