Eindhoven 12-09-2016, Final Flight 50+95
Luckily the first ferry flight had to be postponed by at least three weeks, due to administrative and technical issues. Therefore we had been able, to eyewitness the very last flight of C-160D Transall, 50+95 from LTG-63, based at Hohn Rendsburg in almost perfect weather conditions, on Monday the 12th September 2016. She has become the new gate guard of EATC - European Air Transport Command, currently based at Royal Netherlands Air Force Base Eindhoven, by the end of November 2016.
After a lot of fog in the early morning hours, the weather luckily increased in the afternoon. So I'd been able to take my first pictures at the Slopes South. CH-47D, D-102 "Big Spender" had been the star at the scenery. "Mission2930" from Volkel, flown by the former Netherlands Display Pilot "Sheik", also paid a visit for two PD's!
