Just read that the Dutch Air Force open day planned at Volkel in 2017 is cancelled.

So no Dutch Open Dagen :sad:

Pity, always enjoy my trips to the Open Daagen.

Whats the reason for the cancellation?

Reason is not enough manpower and time to organise these days. As well the airforce need more recuparation time after their recent deployments.

If they hadn't used such expensive paint on the Orange Lion we'd have been fine. :facepalm:

With the first opportunity for Airforcedays in '19, I guess there will be a Lightning II displayteam by then. That is if there won't be a F-35-F16 2-ship display comparing/hand over period. The last bit is just wishfull thinking.
A weather forecast is a forecast and just that

Or like they did with the NF-5, a "Double Dutch" swansong of 2 x F-16!
