Eindhoven was the city where the authors both grew up and became “real” aircraft-spotters at the nearby air base. They made many pictures there throughout the years often under difficult circumstances ! This gallery contains a selection of these “blood, sweat and tears”-pics taken at Eindhoven (NL). The Eindhoven based Thunderstreaks are not in this gallery, but all in one seperate album. Note that in the 60/70ties Eindhoven AB also had a Base-Flight with Lockheed T-33’s,Harvards etc. You will find some pictures of these aircraft in this gallery.
A few images taken in more recent years are incorporated as well. Eindhoven now houses the transport fleet of the RNethAF (pics are in gallery named “KLu aircraft”).
In June 98 Frank (a.o.) was invited to visit 334 squadron, based at Eindhoven. At that time it was the sole KLu transport unit, equipped with the KDC-10 tanker aircraft, the C-130 Hercules. a number of Fokkers and a Gulfstream; apart from the colour schemes, much remains the same today.
