GK Open Days - Spotters-day

GK Open Days - Spotters-day

Postby Thommo95 on Mon 03 Jul 2017, 7:23 pm

Geilenkirchen, home to NATO's AWACS fleet held a open day and spotters day in conjunction with the 35th year of NATO AWACS operations from GK. The participation list chopped and changed all the way up to the event and even though stand out items such as the Turkish E-7, Italian ATL2 and French E-3F cancelled a wide variety of aircraft gathered for the event. Unfortunately the star attendee, an Italian G550-AEW arrived on the Thursday ahead of the spotters day on the Friday. However, Friday provided a number of excellent movements, albeit in varied and at times very overcast conditions!

Thanks to the organisers and ATC who ensured a vast majority of arrivals either backtracked or taxied past the gathered photographers.
