One hour drive for me, plus there was plenty of space to allow for social distancing. And plenty of polizei to make sure everyone behaved appropriately :thumb:

Nice

How many IDF turned up? More than three surely!

You can travel from GB or is Germany now on the isolation list?

One C-130 (522) the G550 ( 569 ) , two 707 tankers (260 and 275 ). F-16C’s were 531,534 and 536 F-16D’s were 628,676,682). Another G550 should have arrived after 14.00 local but I had left by then. The Hercules departed as I was leaving.
I’m not sure what the situation is regarding travel to Germany from the U.K. I’m resident in the Netherlands, travelling from the U.K. to the Netherlands you won’t need to self quarantine, going back to the U.K. you would have to self isolate. All subject to change of course !

At the place at the fence there was 0.0 social distancing. And police did nothing , exexpt 1 warning to wear face masks and removing people with stairs from the fence ;)

I kept away from the fence, plenty of room in the fields around the approach. One of the policemen in my vicinity was more interested in the aircraft, he had some serious photographic equipment and it was only pointed towards the aircraft,not the public

CURRENTLY Not if you fly between UK & Germany, but to drive there clearly takes you through the alleged 'plague-pits' of France, Belgium & Holland. A very attractive trip in normal times, but probably not viable in our new 'normal'. :unsure:
