Volkel was host to the bi-annual Open Days of the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF or Koninklijke Luchtmacht (KLu)). Although the quantity was less than former editions, some nice pictures could be made. Star of the show was the JSF of which two Dutch and one Italian variant could be seen.
2013 marked the 100th anniversary of the Royal Netherlands Air Force. This was celebrated at Volkel airbase with a nice variety of participants and some very dynamic displays.
|Volkel AB was the venue for the 2010 edition of the famous Tigermeet. GVR Aviation attended the spottersday on the 13th of October which saw a morning- and afternoon mission take the sky.|
The 2009 edition of the Klu’s Luchtmachtdagen was blessed with dry weather and sunny spells, but clouds prevented quality photography during the last hour of the flying display. Highlight was definately the display of The Vulcan XH558 which has been restored to flying status again after a lot of money and effort.
The 2007 edition of the KLu Open Dagen were being held at Volkel AB. This was the first year when spotters were allowed on base to witness the arrivals of the participants for this airshow.
Just a small trip to one of the main F-16 bases in Holland, Volkel AB. Some F-16 activity and 2 different AWACS birds made a fine day out.
