    Default Frisian Flag 2012

    Here's a 18 min video from April 13 showing arrivals and departures of various aircraft from various nations in preparation for the multi-national exercise Frisian Flag 2012. It's apparently going on since April 15 and will last for two weeks at the RNLAF base at Leeuwarden.



    Another clip, this time from April 16 showing quite a few EF2000s and F-16s on take-off:



    Enjoy!

    Shoot! I first thought, "That milk is military-related?"

    German and UK's Typhoons, F-16 from NL, Belgium, Poland and Norway, Poland and Finland's C295s. Other vids show Swede's Gripens and Finland's Hornets. No Rafale?

    Don't worry, they'll fly between 09:00 and 16:30. After that they'll be at the bars...

    I think you meant inconvenience or bother. Overlast is a Dutch word
