Volkel Air Show

The air show of the Royal Dutch Air Force are always something to look forward to. Their Luchtmachtdagen are a perfect organization and usually have a great line up.

This year was particularly exciting as it was the 1st air show since the Dutch brought the F-35 into service. I had high hopes that they would display their newest birds. And I was not disappointed. Not only did they display their F-35, they also put together a fighter heritage flight with a Spitfire, an F-16 and the new F-35.
