RNLAF Open Days 2009 (Volkel AB)
« on: January 30, 2009, 11:00:04 AM »
Hello guys,

Still very early to start with the participation list, the website of the
"Open Door Days" is not even online... But the first two interesting
'confirmed' participants can start the list for the 2009 airshow.

Spain
- Flying - EF-18+ Hornet (Confirmed)  >:D
- Flying - Patrulla Aguila (Confirmed)

My favorite is already in the list.
Regards, Ramon

Hey Niels,

This is the RAF Hawk T1 Solo Display, from
208(R) Squadron in a nice display color layout.

Hello F-111 C/C,

No problem, if the weather cooperates with the show. I will
post some photographs of this team, together with webmaster Niels.

Hello all,

Already known, as this is the homebase of the RNLAF
F-16 Solo display team. Here two shots of the F-16
in a very spectacular paint sheme for the 2009 season.

Looks a pretty good line up so far , keep forgetting we now heading into airshow season. I know we are not doing much this year but hopefully next year the MRA4 will be doing the circuit at a few airshows in proper RAF ownership, cant see any displays ever as its a vital asset and not worth bending airframe but static shows are always the best.

Dutch air shows are awesome , Gilze Rijen in 2005 was the best airshow I done with the Mighty Rod , dutch are like the best hosts ever.
