Re: Istrana Air Base (LIPS) 30-7-2018

Still 20 S-208M are in service with 60 Stormo at Guidonia.
That many still! Hope to catch a couple then. Mainly used for glider towing and to keep pilots with a desk job current, I guess?

Re: Spotting directions for North Island/Miramar/Camp Pendle

For North Island, the northwestern end of Coronado Beach is the place to be. I don't know if they fly during the weekend though. Don't forget to check out the USCG HH-60's at nearby San Diego International Airport. And of course the museum carrier in the port near the city center! If there is no fly...

Re: ETAR 18-05-2018

Is 'Cougar' for the C-21A an official USAF name? I don't think I ever noted it before.

AC-130 ott Arnhem

Around 10pm a C-130 was clearly seen (and heard) overhead Arnhem. According to ADS-B Exchange, this was RCH1007 / 88-1302, an AC-130W. It was heading SSE, so a good guess is that it is either going to Ramstein or Spangdahlem. It is now flying over the Eifel. Nice if someone can confirm that the seri...

De logs die ik van die Duitse velden voorbij zie komen, zijn meestal beperkt tot hooguit 6 Torren en een keer een A310 in de overshoot. Of je daar nou zo blij van wordt.
