I am currently on the Costa Blanca & am hoping to visit Albacete either next week or week after. I noted a newspaper article on the web which mentioned aircraft from Greece, France, Germany, Italy plus Spain are due. Flying to start Monday next. Interestingly I have just seen Greek C27J 4122 on Flight Radar which was clearly tracking from Albacete, heading home.
If anyone has any further info that would be great. I cannot yet see any updates on Scramble

6 HAF F-16 is nice

Were some of the flyers not identified because they changed ends or were they back later than usual i.e dark?

Thanks for replying and taking the time to post a log

Yes I remember last year the HAF were only just readable and that was by using cameras

An additional German Ef2000 was identified on the 19/02 in the shape of 30 93, this still leaves one German Ef2000 to be identified.
Still only two Italian Ef2000 seen in the past week despite reports of four arriving.(Hangar queens).

Cold nights and warm days
