Nordholz Airday Germany            

Dutch Aviation Support visited the day before in sunny weather conditions...
... and the day itself - under dramatic thundersstorms and heavy lightning - the show was cancelled.
Introduction of the new P-3C ORION's
Enjoy this photographic impression of a sad day for the German Organisation and also all participants because of the weather and cancellation in the late afternoon. Also a sad day for the Royal Dutch Navy that said good-bye to its former Orions. Never the less we wish the German Crews and Navy pleasant flights and many happy landings !! (former Dutch 320 / 321 Sqn MVKV)
