Re: Advies lijmen rubber Canon EOS

Hallo, Ik wil hierbij vragen naar advies m.b.t. lijmen van rubber Canon EOS 7D Mark II. Na 2,5 jaar merk ik dat rubber bij de handgrip los aan het laten is (zie afbeelding hieronder). Vind het erg slordig en bij navraag Canon word direct aangegeven dat dit geen garantie is. Ook begrijp ik dat Canon...

Re: NAS North Island MIL 2018

Here my log of what I could read from my pictures with BuNo's and tail codes. This is not always applicable for the F/A-18s, where in most cases I could only read the maintenance code and/or the former sq code: Basic type Full type Serial Code Country Unit Status Remark Beech 350 Beech 350CER N610A ...

Maarten, They have both 2 and 3 digit codes, in March we saw: 168553/NG-(6)14 167861/NG-(6)15 168559/NG-617 Hi Melchior, I just found on on my pictures that I photographed two Sea Hawks with the code 617, the tie-up for the other one is unknown to me because I did not saw a tail code nor a sq batch.

HSC-14 has the NG tailcode, so that should be right, but they normally have only two digits in the code instead of three. Normally only...

Just wondering did you pre-book or just turn up? We expect to be there on a Friday.
Regards,

We did a pre-book the afternoon before we went. Do the morning tour otherwise you are facing the sun.
