LECHFELD

 
A fine LanceR from Romania, Lechfeld platform (2006) , and a Polish Fitter (2008)
   
Expressly pleasant present were the Italians with their Tornado's this year 2008 !
 
2008 brought extremely bad weather, here a few moments of a little sun
Italian Tornado's prepare for an afternoon mission 
 
In case of emergency: Prepared ! In case of a scramble: Go go !  
P
While some depart, others return. Spanish F/A-18 and Norwegian Falcon
Last of Lechfeld for now: A Turkish Tornado takes-off for Heuberg range to 'play' with GBAD.
 

LAUPHEIM

 
Laupheim is the homebase of the heavy stuff: CH-53 
 
From here the machines started, to do their exercises with flares at Heuberg range
 
Heuberg also was the guest base for other helicopter types such as the Boilkow 105 and A-109
 
     

      LANDSBERG     

 
Landsberg near Lechfeld is the more quit transportbase for the Transall's...
 
... and the Breguet Atlantiques also find their homebase here.
 
This here example gets a maintainance service on it's radar-radome under the belly
 
Large planes on large platforms...
 
... and ofcourse troop transports are part of the exercise and task for the C-160's.
A few views on the Landsberg fire brigade...
 
... main building and tower.
 
LTG-61 houses the C-160 and the UH-1D Huey's
 
A Polish participant taxies to the runway, and the Transall's are prepared for flight.
 
Nice to see: A view in the cockpit and cargo-room and hatch of the Transall
