Postby 114PM on Thu 16 Feb 2017, 12:59 pm

During the Tactical Weapons Meet in Florennes (5-16. June), a spotterday will be organised on 15. June.

The Hellenic Air Force will attend with F-4E PI2000 from Andravida AB.
The plan was to have the RF-4E, but due to the disbandment earlier in May, it changed to the Andravida Phantoms ...

Probably just a case of the mailbox not being set up to accept massive images (I think the three passport scans I attached to my email totalled 15MB!)

If you're on Facebook, you might wish to let them know you've paid (don't post any personal details!) and that you're not able to send the email through yet...

What is it like to photograph here from off base? I would like to get some pictures of the exercise aircraft while I'm in the area on Friday June 10.

Thank you for your help.

TACTICAL WEAPON MEET – UPDATE 4 – PLEASE SHARE!

Dear Followers,

We are in the last sprint to the 15th of June and our Spotters Day. A whole lotta info will be sent by mail to the people who are registered, and via our Facebook page later this week.

But there is one info we want to share: LAST CALL!

The registration is closed the 1st of June! At that date, all registrations must be done. That mean that we must be in possession of a copy of your ID card, and payment must be done.

We are looking forward to meet you in Florennes in the upcoming weeks!
