  2. Hallo leute, In 2004/05 gab es diese Tornado auf flugplatz Soesterberg (Niederlände). Sie blieb auch das wochenende (wegen eine cocpithaube problem glaube ich). Kennt einer die (darmaligen) einheit und der flugplatz diese machine, 44+44?
  3. V/KG 2 started off with the A1 version in (late) summer 1943. Night missions, bombing stuff and shoot down an allied bomber if they got the chance. Even carried out a number of daylight missions. V/KG 2 became II/KG 51 in March '44. It recommenced intruder operations (I/KG 51 carrying out bombing missions).
  4. Nooooo ....not the nice Dutch town of Heerlen!
  5. It had something to do with the Kaiser

  9. Aah yes T. Postma offcourse! Also a Dutchman: L. van 't Hof. Hardly heard of. I quess because these men already painted before the pc/internet era got started. For the benefit of educating I shall post some of his work
  10. Congrats Penguin! Was just looking those Catalina pics up Uufflakke! .... haha. Brings back memories.... I remember on my Catalina flight there was an ret. (Dutch) Navy Doctor. He had flown aboard many navy planes back in the days. Not a Catalina however. At the beginning of the take -off some of the faces started to look a bit worried (not knowing what exactly happenes at a moment like that (engine noise/vibration). I look at the old Navy doc. He looks my way. We're both grinning from ear to ear ...... Priceless!!! And that video offcourse! https://vimeo.com/106056861
  11. Always nice to see aviation paintings! Have not seen these before. Thanks for posting. I like the older medium a bit more though. Long time ago I scanned this old picture on an model kit (Italeri?). Always found this captivating. Something doomish with the orange/red sky and the details of a town and some barges below.
