ETAR 29-03-2013

Post by Gerard »

Main goal for my visit was the presence of the Afghan C-27s, which were all seen parked on the east-platform:
04095
84020
84025
84026

Following C-17s were seen moving between 13.00 and 14.30lt:
55141 452AMW
66160 60AMW
77174 436AW
88201 62AW
03 SAC
I would be happy to read which C-17 landed at around 14.40lt, just when I entered to highway back home.

Hi Gerard,

does "east-platform" mean the usual RS-Herc-ramp, which can well be overlooked from the 26/27-approach spotting point?

Tommy,

Yesterday all were parked on ramp 2, next to each other. That's the former delta opps platform with the hangars. So not ramp 1 were the Hercs are parked (which were almost all home, except the 2 at Stuttgart). Also on that platform around 1PM were 3 Blackhawks. Most probably the Ansbach ones that returned from their duty in Israel during the Obama visit last week.

BR,
Jeroen

Many thanks Jeroen.
So they are not really visible from "runway-level".

Oh yes they are. You can easily see them next in line from the east side of the base (landing). At the Kindsbach hill you have a tail-on view.

Well, then check again! We all make mistakes, so do you :wink:

I said Afghan, not Afghan AF, that was meant to be a subtle difference! As a matter of fact they are DoD accepted, not even USAF.

Anyone for the C-130 that departed in the afternoon? I believe it was just before 1500hrs.
