Geilenkirchen NATO E3 Component 35th Anniversary

Geilenkirchen NATO E3 Component 35th Anniversary

Postby zigzag on Thu 14 Dec 2017, 1:05 pm

Back in June an Open House was held at Geilenkirchen to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the NATO E3 Component. The event drew a nice and varied selection of aircraft from around Europe. A spottersday was organised for the Friday and I spent a very enjoyable day in the company of Geoff & Keiran drinking beer, eating bratwurst and taking the odd photo. Photographically the weather was generally overcast but it was nice to see that all aircraft were directed past the spotters enclosure, even a couple (Mig 29 & Su 22) that had arrived the day before paraded for us first thing, and there was a particularly sweet spot with the trees as a nice uncluttered background. On with the piccies.......
