On July 3rd , 1992 Hans travelled all the way by car to and fro Koksijde Air Base , which is situated near the Belgian coast . It was his intention to be present during the arrivals of several aircraft and helicopters that were to participate in the Open Days that followed.
In July 1987 Hans boarded the ferry-boat from Hook of Holland to Harwich with his car and after arrival in the U.K.he travelled to RAF Fairford.
Royal Air Force Germany’s base at Laarbruch , just across the Dutch border , opened its gates to the public on September 29th , 1973 . There was no Air Show , but only a small Static Show , probably due to the somewhat rainy weather conditions. Hans made some photos in black & white and Frank in colour, which you certainly will enjoy.
The pictures in this gallery were taken in Germany by the authors throughout the years often under difficult circumstances , always staying outside the gates and fences of military airfields.
