I was looking at doing an Ian Allan trip to cover this Whittmund event but at nearly £800 I reckon i'll be better off doing it my own way. If anyone else fancies doing the same then feel free to get in contact.

Sounds good.. although when you say foursome...... :lol:

Can't find any other details about this event at the moment other than it just turned up in the Ian Allan Phantom Trip Itinerary. They had been waiting for a date from Wittmund.

Does anyone know if this is a open day or by invite only? My brother and I will be heading out for sure, but would be good to know whether we'll be inside or outside! :D

Got no details on it other than a date and I can't even corroborate that with anything else at the moment. Hoping more details emerge very soon.

The date is correct and confident. It´s an spotterday open for everybody. You need to register yourself over Luftwaffe.de in the next months as soon as the people from JG71 are ready. (I guess round about March - April) Currently the squadron invites some guest aircrafts from other Luftwaffe and NATO squadrons.
The guest aircrafts are all in for static, but based JG71 Phantoms should be flying too, which is not 100% sure currently. That´s the informations i got this week from JG71 press and information office. I hope it helps you.
See you in Wittmund next June and greets from Bavaria.

Was hoping to have been able to do this but baby due on 9th June makes it too risky if I want to retain my genitalia for future reference :grin: Hope it all works out for those who are going.

I've heard some rumours (can't remember where) that only the A-4s would be flying that day.
