... thus neatly missing next summer's Euros, which are due to start on the 14th. Worth noting though that whenever the Spotter's Day falls, the proximity to the Euros (depending on location) could still cause problems with flights and accommodation.

The 6th is a Thursday until the 14th (a Friday) is only a week and a half.
Normally NTM runs for 2 weeks (like this year)

Scramble Forum says 3rd-14th June.
And to be held in the north, Jagel and Hohn will be used.

Interesting... so back to Jagel then. I enjoyed 2014 and it's a beautiful part of the world.

I guess Hamburg will definitely be one of the venues for the Euro Championships, just have to hope that the Spotter's Day(s) take place in the early part of the Meet.

Agreed, just looked and Hamburg is the easiest airport to access Jagel - about 1.5hrs away.

Daily flights out of Heathrow (BA and Eurowings) and Stansted (Ryanair).

Keil seems to be the nearest airport.

Kiel doesn’t have much international connections. It’s a small domestic airport.
Hamburg and Bremen, although a bit further away, are the best option when coming from UK

Agreed it is a beautiful unspoilt part of the world. However I felt that the 2014 event itself was hugely disappointing. The spotters were crammed in and poorly placed for anything other than taxi shots (if you could get to the front). Weather didn’t help either but it is that part of Germany sticks up like a thumb from the main landmass.
No surprise then that I won’t be going.

The Spotter's Day itself was challenging - agreed re your point around access, which worked far better for taxiing shots than take-offs, which felt quite distant - but Jagel as a base has fine access points at both ends which makes it suitable for spotting from outside. I ended up using the non-public days for flying (i.e. take-off and landing) shots, and used the formal Spotter's Day for close-up taxiing stuff. This worked well and, assuming there are no new restrictions on access points from the outside, is probably what I will do again.

As others have said, the last Spotters day wasn't great but, having returned back in June, the place has some great opportunities from outside at either end. The drive from/to Hamburg is a breeze.
Having missed the boat for Italy, I'm hoping that with it being so late and Jagel being (relatively) early some of the current schemes will remain in situ.. :fingers_crossed_tone2:

Billund is also worth considering with low fare connections from some UK cities.

Aalborg hosts the Danish Airshow in the middle weekend of the Tiger Meet. Might be a nice combination

I did this for Air Defender, can highly recommend. An absolute breeze from Billund to Jagel.

Also if you want cheap and simple accomadation I can highly recommend Roatel-Busdorf A7. Basically a few shipping containers thats been done out into compact hotel rooms, aimed at HGV drivers. Your basically a mile from the North of the base, It was perfect for what I needed for 3 nights and very cheap.

They dont normally but have been known to put on an airshow/public day the weekend after the Spotters Day from time to time but generally no.

Airshow and Germany... Not the best combination.

1995 just called, they want their joke back…

In recent years Germany had quite some improvement at airshows. ILA, Tag der Bundeswehr.

ILA is on a freefall down in recent years, at least since they relocated to the special Messe Berlin part of the airfield. There WAS a time when it was the tradeshow to visit in Europe, but they have succesfully positioned themselves now as even worse than Farnborough (which is an impressive achievement in itself). Never heard about an event during the Tag der Bundeswehr that had more then three flying displays, so hardly worth to be called an airshow.

That’s why I call it an improvement. Before the Tag der Bundeswehr there was almost nothing to be seen flying. Also ILA had some rather nice Airpower demos (although it would be better to find a new venue after developments in recent years).
Anyway, Tag der Bundeswehr next year seems to be held at Fassberg and Holzdorf, which might be good for a fair amount of helicopters on ground and in the air
