1st Week of flying already over

TuAF F-16 taking off from Jagel

With the first 4 days of flying behind us, Monday was arrivals, NTM'14 is starting to pick up the pace. Unfortunately the weather is turning out to become a limiting factor. Strong crosswinds and an increased sea state meant that several missions on both Thursday and Friday were forced to be cancelled.
We are still waiting for the arrival of the 11F Special Painted Rafale M, that is suffering from technical problems at their Home base, BAN Landiviseau near Brest. The technicians are working to get it here on Monday during the Second Spottersday.
