    Looks like a nice lineup. I looked at your previous thread and for the life of me can't figure out how I missed those before! You captured the previous shows nicely. There is something really nostalgic and cool about a grass runway.

    Thanks Eric.

    Fokker 4 will come again as well. I really love them, nice and slow, so you have all the time in the world to make a decent picture. The organizer said there might be a D.7 as well, which would be really cool.

    Looking forward to your pics of the show Marcel.
    Are there any shows in early September? I'm planning a road trip to see Roman and friends in Czech republic, late August, and will be returning via Arnhem, down to Dunkirk, in early September, probably around 1st to 3rd.

    Don't think so Terry, you can find the calender here:::Avianet.eu:: De luchtvaartsite van Nederland.

    I can recomend 14 and 15 June. It's the Luchtmachtdagen, our airforce celebrates it's 100th birthday. Will be quite a spectacle.

    Thanks Marcel. The 100th anniversary show sounds good, but I think my wallet would complain in the strongest terms if I tried two 'overseas' trips !!

    Not sure of timings or routes yet, but if we return via Arnhem, on the way to Dunkirk ferry port, we won't be that far away. I'll let you know when I've finalised arrangements - if we have the time, it would be good to call in, even if just for a couple of hours. Are there any camp sites nearby? We're travelling in a small camper van - about the size of a matchbox!!

    Just confirmed, we'll get a P40b at Oostwold. It's getting better and better.
