FRISIAN FLAG 2019

A surprisingly limited coverage of this year’s edition of FRISIAN FLAG here so I will try to fill in. Lots of sunshine and easterly winds made it an ideal kick-off into the season for many enthusiasts and in comparison to previous years it seemed that the crowd visiting this interesting event grows and grows every year (see last image). Superb conditions provided by the Aviation Group Leeuwarden allowed for some great days at the fence - dank u wel, AGL!! Well done once more!
