Dutch F-16 fighters temporary deployment at Eindhoven AFB

Dutch F-16 deployment Eindhoven
Dutch F-16 takes off from Eindhovem airport.

As reported by Joris van Boven, eight Dutch F-16s were temporarily deployed at the Eindhoven air base from Monday 3 to Wednesday 5 June due to maintenance work at their home-base in Volkel, the Netherlands.

On Monday 3 June the fighter jets reached Eindhoven after their morning flight. While in Eindhoven, the F-16s carried out two daily missions, approximately at 10 AM and 2 PM.

Thanks to the proximity between the car park of the civil airport and the operational area of ​​the military zone, Joris was able to take great pics of the aircraft during the pre-mission phases and rare take-offs with liners in the background. Eindhoven is an airport for military and civilian use that hosts many low-cost airlines such as Ryanair and the heavy planes of the Royal Netherlands Air Force. Often it offers the opportunity to admire the home-based KDC-10 and C-130 aircraft and some foreign guests such as the USAF C-17s.

The last two pics also show the Dutch T-235 tanker which recently received a special tail to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the 334th Squadron.
