Eindhoven - 3 juni 2019
Planned reparations on the Volkel Airbase made 8 F-16's go to Eindhoven for 3 days. Unfortunatly I missed the arrivals, but went the same afternoon to get some pictures.
Somebody called Eindhoven Airport for fun "Fightertown" Eindhoven, hence the title.
Leeuwarden - 10 april 2019
And then it was time for 2 days Frisian Flag. The weather forecast was good, but with a northern wind and 10 degrees I feared for the worse... and it was.
In the end we decided that 1 day of this was enough and FilmBart and me went home after some good pictures.
Eindhoven - 5 april 2019
A change in my work shift and the good weather made me decide to go to Eindhoven-Welschap Airport a few days earlier than planned. Glad I did!
It was a perfect morning with lots of visitors for the exercise and some extra's.
And another 1/144 fighter finished.
F-16AM Falcon in Belgium colors.
Kleine Brogel, België - 7 & 9 September 2018
This year there was no Sanicole Airshow, instead there was the Belgium Air Force Days in Kleine Brogel. Thanks to a friendly taxi by my dad, Bart and I went to the spottersday/arrivals.
2 days later I went again to the show itself. It was a classic reunion of my mom, dad and sister going to an airshow , just like the old days.
More Military! 14 pics added, Modern Western, American and British WWII.
Quick, small scale model building. I made a new category, "Small Fighters" with famous fighters of the modern age. The scale is 1/144.
Below all the models added.
Mińsk Mazowiecki, Polen - 25 augustus 2017
In the trip to Radom Airshow, a base visit was planned to Mińsk Airbase. Normally it is a MiG-29 base, but due to the flightpast at Radom Airshow, also a few Su-22's where there.
We saw it all up and close. Pre-flight, take-off and recovery. A perfect day, one to remember for a long time.
Scale modeling is a hobby of mine. As good as I can, I make models and paint them historically acurate. I started very young, but it became serious in high school.
Below all the models added.
The Dutch Airforce
Another militairy update! 13 pics added, all West-Europe.
Besides military planes, I also like to photograph other military hardware.
I added a new section where I show my pictures of those.
Below you will find the pictures I added. Taken at Overloon Museum and Open dagen Landmacht, Oirschot.
Eindhoven - 22 september 2018
Falcon Leap is a para dropping exercise. These droppings at the Ginkelse Heide is held at the same time of year as operation Market Garden to rember those droppings.
I decided to go to the airfield just the week before, and it was more fun than expected! I went in the morning because of the weather forecast.
The autumn light was hard, but the results are quite good.
