Luckily my education course at Bavaria had been cancelled last minute, so I "was not able" to go to the last Spottersday at Lechfeld. Therefore I took the opportunity to go to Wittmund to catch some Phantoms. And it was worth the trip.

Arriving in "Winter Wonderland" conditions
Image

we were pleased by the first Take Off at around 0900Lt. by the local QRA
Image

Image


And at around 1010Lt. the main Highlight of the day took off. First of the Baron4 Flight was 38+10
Image

Image

Image


Shortly followed by it's Buddy: 38+33
Image

Image

Image


We also had a few visitor at Wittmund. First of all EF-2000T 30+77 from JG73
Image

followed by 30+67
Image

and 45+60 from AG-51
Image


Before leaving Wittmund for Neuburg, both retro painted Phantom's did a very nice Formation Low Approach
Image

Image


and last but not least the special marked 38+64 "Goldene HPO", one of two aircraft in the afternoon wave
Image


Hope you like'em.
