Re: Defile 14 July2020 Paris

For the first rehearsal the aircraft used Orleans, they were on the ground according to pictures shared by the base on facebook.
The base also said in the comments that they will NOT be gathering at Orleans for the actual parade.

Today there would be a second rehearsal btw at 2 pm

Re: Wittmund 2020

AD CLOSED. 16 JUN 14:00 2020 UNTIL 15 JUL 05:59 2020

so the airfield is open on the 15th but whether it is a NORMAL flying day remains to be seen; the A-4s and EF-2000s MAY return on the 15th from their temporary homes.

Re: Req Jet Provost Nunspeet

Last time I saw it a few years ago it was inside at the back of a huge hall which was full of classic cars. Just ask if you may enter to see it, they are usually open on weekdays.

Re: 3rd CAB helicopters outbound Europe

Based on experience, many options are possible, as we have seen last week. We have seen stops at Ramstein, Spangdahlem and even Norvenich, and yes, also at Eindhoven, but no guarantee that they will stay overnight or even stop there.

The weather may also play ball tomorrow btw.

Zonan,

the two Gulfstreams on the apron on Sunday from around noon were 01-0029 and 97-0400, both photoproof.

Hope this helps!

Re: 3rd CAB helicopters outbound Europe

The four at Eindhoven are not in Sjoerd's list, so it must be three others that are in the list and not there.
Anyone knows which ones?

Re: 3rd CAB helicopters outbound Europe

Sjoerd, yes a head count was still possible last night, but it may be a lot harder after more arrivals the upcoming days as they will block each other more and more... spot 2 of the map shown on page 11 in this great thread yielded some good results, even better so in the morning I presume. happy hu...

Re: Donauwoerth / Airbus (EDPR) 2020 (CIV+MIL)

Hilco,

just to clarify, some NH90-NFHs have been delivered, but this one is still used for tests and system integration; so although 79+51 is the first one in terms of having the lowest serial it was not the first one delivered to the navy.
