Balti airfield, Rep of Moldova

Returning from a short trip and going through Balti (second biggest city in the Republic of Moldova), I found this airfield, just on the north east of the city, along the main road (there is also there a small airport with concrete runway and a few buildings, but no planes around. Following local pe...

Re: (PIC)(MIL) USA Tour AZ,NV,CA,TX,NM,OK / Update: Yuma+mor

Royal Australian AF F-35 actually.
NZ didn't buy any F-35 (and has no more fighter jets since the loss of the A-4s fleet).

Re: ETAD 23-03-2015

Thank you very much Coert ! It looks very precise to me now. I'll go for sure one of these days. I even plan to stay overnight and spend two days at SP testing my new camera once weather forecast and my free time will both allow. A-10 + CF-188 + the usual transports and F-16 altogether is an opportu...

Re: ETAD 23-03-2015

Hard to say Fred, as they change a lot. Last Monday the plan was to fly 3 missions (morning, afternoon, evening), but cancelled morning. Keep in mind that the A-10 missions are very long most of the times (around 2 hours!). F-16s go quite a lot to the tankers these days. CAF hornets if they fly, on...

Re: ETAD 23-03-2015

Hi gyus ! I plan to go to Spangdahlem one of these days to try to see the A-10. I have the feeling, by reading your reports that they fly mostly during the afternoon and even on the evening. As I live quite far from "SP" and want to have as much chances as possible on my side, can you confirm this o...

Re: Shooting Exercise A-10 Thunderbolt II at Nordhorn Range

Super !
Thanks for this !
It feels like being 25 years younger at Alconbury and Woodbridge, even though the colour on those birds changed.

Chisinau Republic of Moldova - 16.10.2014

A few pictures from a short stop at Chisinau (Kishinev) Int. airport, in Republic of Moldova.
Many nice (derelict for the majority) soviet era airliners. But not well positionned for pictures while security guys were a bit too close to allow pictures...

Re: Brussels MB-339 over the city

Great !
Regarding this rehearsal flight that I saw today, you may expect the best place to go tomorrow to watch them will be in Cinqantenaire square or in the first leg of avenue de Tervueren.

Too bad : I won't be in Brussels tomorrow as I plan to go to Kleine Brogel.

Brussels MB-339 over the city

Quite unusual : today at 2:10 PM, 2:15 PM and 2:25 PM, a single MB-339 wearing tail number "1", overflew three times Brussels downtown at low level with white smoke (the second pass was at exceptionnaly low level and the jet made a hard turn to the left over "European area"). I was able to make pict...

Re: Kleine Brogel (EBBL) 2014 MIL

I think it is the one which was at Payerne last weekend.
Probably going to Kleine Brogel with the UAEAF aerobatic team, for next weekend's air show.
