Times now suggested on Scramble are for a 1615 and 1645 local time arrival at Leeuwaarden for the F-15's in two flights of six, minus an hour for GMT.

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.
