The APROC 2018 Album is live.

In the post, of 2018/06/09, I mentioned that 2018 was the year that the Royal Netherlands Air Force hosted the exercise APROC 2018.

It took me some more time. Summer holiday took a lot of time to get it sorted out and published. Finally, it’s here. There are more pictures which I’ll add later

What’s next?

I had another shoot with lovely puppies last week. I’ll post an album of these little creatures soon.

With regard to planes and helicopters, the next one is already planned.  The Belgian Air Force Day. Next Saturday we’ll be heading for Belgium

Airshow by Leaseweb Texel

It’s summer holiday. 6 weeks of time where kids don’t have to do anything… Well, just having the holiday. That’s all.
But it’s also time to do things which have never done before. What about an Airshow?

As I’m a great aviation fan and try to visit airbases as much as possible.
Someday my 8-year old son mentioned, after showing him some pictures of recent airbase visits, he wished he was there with me.
What a chance he had on his first day together with his dad, during this holiday. An airshow was planned on August 4th, just an hour and a half away!!

Did you ever hear a sound of a P51 Mustang? (turn up your sound)

The preparations

The event tickets, the overnight stay and the boat crossing were arranged easily.
Airshows can be very noisy, so some ear protection was required for the little guy as well.

After the show, the plan was to visit my parents up north so Yaz was with us as well. But having Yaz with us all day, would not be a good idea so we arranged a nice place to stay, close to the airport.

The show

After a good night sleep, eventually, we went to the airport and o dear……
Shops!!! However, it required some pushing not to by them all empty.
Quickly to the airstrip and wait for the show to start.

I mean, it was great to see all the shows. Unfortunately, some show had to quit early or didn’t start all due to (weather) circumstances. But did we see some good stuff.

What’s next?

In short, with regard to an airshow, the next one is already planned.  The Belgian Air Force Day.
A real air force base is very exciting of course and therefore the little guy is looking forward to it already.

Happy little guy, Airshow
Happy little guy. Everything worth it

Still to figure out a lot.
The SNAP auto poster is still a pain. It works but I need to get the different account setup correctly.

If you like to check out SNAP as a plugin on your site, take a look over here.
I have a lot of fun with it.

Keep an eye out on this site because more will follow soon 😉

Frisian Flag 2018, Large Scale Military Exercise.

From Sunday 8 April to Friday 20 April, Leeuwarden Air Base hosted the large-scale international exercise Frisian Flag 2018.

I had the opportunity to visit this major event in the north of our beautiful country on April 16th. An early start that morning and on my way to the spotter’s hill close to runway 05.
After parking my car it didn’t take long before the first wave took off.

Except for the Polish MIG-29 Fulcrum’s (2x) all countries took off, returning within an hour and a half.
After all, planes were back and safely landed we had a break for about an hour or so before the second wave started.

Well, at the end of the day the total clicks of my camera were up with a bit more than 3200 photos taken. (o my god… )
Anyway, I had a great day and it felt good to be back close to the base again.

For a first impression of the photos, have a look at my Portfolio under Aviation_Military.
I’ll add more soon after I have sorted them all… (which is still a lot)

Enjoy!!
