Open days

Unlike Friday, on Saturday the weather was perfect. On both day’s the RNLAF performed an airpower demo. This simulated airfield attack to capture some terrorists gives an idea of the air force capabilities.

Surprise visitor number two left during the show on Saturday. A C-130H of the New Zealand Air Force, rarely seen in this part of the world, left for England. The Hercules came as a Red Arrows support aircraft and was probably based on an exchange program in England.

This year, for the last time, a Austrian Saab Draken performed a excellent full afterburner show. The aircraft is retired later this year.

A first for the Dutch open days was the combined formation with the display F-16 (J-055) a B-25 and a Spitfire. On of the themes this year was 60 years of liberation.

In all a great show. Next year the open days will be held at Leeuwarden AB.
