On July 6th , 1975 an Open House took place at RAF Wildenrath (Germany) again and also this time it attracted many thousands of people , while temperatures were above average. It was interesting enough though with a large Static Show and featuring an alert take-off by an Avro Vulcan. This gallery presents to you a photo-impression made by Frank and Hans.
The second K.Lu Open Day in 1972 was the one at Gilze Rijen AB on August 26th . There were no foreign aircraft present , but the mass-scramble of 316 squadron’s Northrop-Canadair NF-A/B’s attracted much attention by the assembled spotters and other spectators. Hans and Frank show you some of the pictures they made during that day.
One of the 2 Open Days held in Holland in 1972 and attended by both Hans and Frank ,was the one at Soesterberg AB, on June 3rd. ; unfortunately the only foreigners were an F-111 that made two high passes and a USAF Phantom.The static show consisted of the entire inventory of the Dutch Air Force and Dutch Navy. Same for the afternoon airshow.
On September 18th , 1971 Eindhoven AB opened its doors to the public. Especially for the Dutch Air Force-fans it was quite an interesting Open Day . Herewith we present you a selection of photos taken during this event , made by Frank and Hans , of which a few were made – by permission- in the operational area.
