    F208 Niedersachsen. The second of eight Bremen-class frigates was put into service 20 years ago and is still soldiering on, as far as I know.

    A Bundeswehr Vorauskommando (survey and/or reconnaissance unit) has arrived in Turkey to organize the upcoming deployment of the German Patriot soldiers and their equipment. Their arrival in Turkey and the way to the city where the German soldiers will operate in was accompanied by the watchful eyes of Turkish reporters, photographers and film crews.



    Aircrews and their C-160 Transalls from the LTG 63 in Hohn train, together with the men of a Fallschirmjägerspezialzug, a new form of approach in day and night conditions. Hereby the paratroopers will use small, man-portable runway lightning equipment so that the pilots can land and get ground directions even on unprepared territory in foreign countries. These missions could include MedEvac and evacuation flights, but I'd guess also in support of ground troops and for SF personnel. Interesting: the Luftwaffe admits this form of training has been neglected in the past years, so one could assume that they want to be prepared for all contingencies, especially with the upcoming transition from the C-160 to the A400M in the next years.

    the patriot pics looks somewaht outdated cause the crews are only wearing flak-jackets. front-line-troops are WAY better equipped.

    Now that's what you call REAL plane spotting! Enthusiasts come within inches of death after military aircraft misses the runway

    For an intrepid band of plane spotters it was the most dramatic experience of their lives – and almost the last thing they saw.
    A crowd of about 1,000 had gathered to watch the final landing of a military plane which was about to be decommissioned after many years of service.
    All appeared to be going smoothly as the Transall C-160 approached the Ballenstedt airfield in Saxony-Anhalt, central Germany.

    Wow, back then when this happened I didn't realize how close those two guys under the right wing's engine were from being chopped to pieces.

    I'm just realising that jumping out of that thing in flight maybe really IS the better way to get down safely...

    Of course the Daily Fail had to mention the war.
    What surprises me is that they mentioned the Pilots full name, which wasn't reported in german media.

    What's not surprising is that they're running the story several weeks or even months late.

    Cause this is a male-dominated forum I have to underline that the pilot of that plane was one of the very few female pilots of the Luftwaffe
