I do agree with you. But i could see a reason for staging through Lakenheath as they could then turn up together at Leeuwarden on time as two flights of six.

It would look better rather than arriving stretched out with possible delays etc. But F'Flag don't start until next week so they should all of arrived by then!

Edit: sorry forgot to copy an earlier post into my drivel.

Seems another delay is in play as one CUBE flight is diverting to Bangor and the other hadn't even departed...

"Tanker issues" apparently! Which, considering there were 8 tankers supporting the crossing in one form or another, is quite impressive even by the USAF's standards! Where are all the KC-10s?

4th Mirage is 671. Belgians FA-70/116/121/124/128 also arrived. (EDITED for correct serials, those on ADSB were nonsense!)

Yep, I need 9 out of 12 Germans, 2 of the French, none of the Belgians, and fingers crossed a few Portuguese and a decent amount of the F-15s! Roll on next Thursday!

In the last 4 years of FF that I've visited, there isn't a lot of changing of aircraft.

!!! WARNING PARKING IN Marsum !!!

Spotters and day trippers who go parking their car in the streets of Marsum where parking is prohibited,
will inevitably get a parking ticket.
The residents have received a waiver of defense.
Cars without exemption be fined 90 euros.

Parking in the parking lot in the pasture near runway 05/spottershill only 3 euros. (open from 8.00 till 16.30 hrs)

You have been warned.

23 side parking
NO parking between the old railroad and the roundabout near TITAN company, so you will have to walk a little further then usual.
