Eindhoven Air Base (NL) , July 1st & 2nd , 1993 (Arrivals for Open Days)
A wide variety of aircraft types presented itself during the 1993 Eindhoven Open Days ( see report elsewhere on the site).
On the 1st and 2nd of July the landing-area was already crowded with aircraft-spotters and photographers (Hans included) . In a long procession all the participating aircraft came gradually in to join the party.
Remarkable was the presence of various types sent in by former East Block countries . To be spotted were the L-39 , AN-12 , SU-25 . TU-134 , MIG 23 , MIG 29 . AN-26 and helicopter-types MI-17 . MI-24 and Sokol.
As you can imagine these two days were fine examples of how excellent weather conditions can make aircraft-spotting and photographing very enjoyable.
Hans left the scene on his hired bike in a pleasant mood and travelled back home by train (which he did twice on these days).
