          Just for the sake of remembering the old thread on mp.net and having to look at something besides text; some photos I took myself during the 2013 Luchtmachtdagen.
          (I own these photos so no copyright issues)











          Seeing these photos I wonder if there will be a F35 demo plane too? or Perhaps they can spare one of those new Chinooks for a stunt team

          PS; if anyone is interested I could post some more/other stuff I have.

            I don't know you guys but our Air Force dudes are planning to change Turkish Stars NF-5 planes with older F-16 models when first squadrons of F-35s become operational in TURAF. And later maybe one F-35 will become the new SoloTurk plane instead of F-16 they are using now

              That would be a cool sight to see, but considering we are only going to have around 4 planes available for missions, I very much doubt we could do that.
              So i'll just wait for SoloTurk F35

                    Imagine how many future voters the PVDA could shuttle across the Mediterranean every month with such a ship ...

                      I saved the Dutch military photos thread on MP.net, so if you want to have a look at it after the site goes down, download it here:

                            I just saw a funny, but sad, thing where kpu showed off some prototype new uniforms and among them was a NFP-blue variant. It had blue, grey in it and orange(!?). Just imagine the standard NFP-green uniform but with the two shades of green replaced with two shades of blue, leaving the grey, black and orange(ish) colors the same (brown was gone).

                            :')
