Rhein-Main (Frankfurt, Germany) Armed Forces Day, May 17th, 1969
For a long time Rhein-Main AB near Frankfurt, Germany acted as the main USAFE operating base for air transport duties on the European Continent , until the base was closed in 2005 and Ramstein AB took over this task. Many deployments from the U.S. took place with Rhein-Main as destination over the years.
On May 17th , 1969 an Armed Forces Day (USAFE Open Day ) was organized here and Hans had the opportunity to take some pictures both at the base and on the nearby spotters-location. (special thanks to Mr .W.Snel)
