Finnish F-18C AAR (Apr 15)

Post by DriesE »

Some months ago, I had the opportunity to fly with a French tanker from Eindhoven Airbase, NLD during the EART 15 :smile: . This AAR exercise ran parallel with the Frisian Flag 2015, so all the receivers were operating from Leeuwarden AB.

Hi very nice, but curious as to why they're flying with a drill AIM-9L/M on one wingtip and a AIM-9X on the other?

Stunning pictures, what a great looking beast it is in the air. Not jealous at all!
