Hopsten Air Base open day 1996

Recommended Posts

I found some old negatives that i took back in 1996

at the open day of JG72 "Westfalen"

I only could digitalize a few pictures, due to the bad state of the negatives.

So the pix i share aren´t the best ones

But i wanna share them with you.

You see some German Army CH-53Gs, BO-105, some Luftwaffe F-4F, Transall, MiG-29, a Belgian AlphaJet and a civil JU-52

Well, maybe not exactly the same, but I saw the same CH-53 dropping an old VW Beetle from a comparable altitude in the grass just beside the runway at Deelen AB at a KLu Open Day a long time ago. The wreck was used as a target for dive bombing Harvards during the same show, one of the scoring a bulls eye through the miraculously still intact rear window with a "bomb" contructed from a disused fire extinguisher......... :blink:
