Fri May 07, 2004 1:31 am

The Germans have Tornadoes, and F-4s based at Holloman AFB in New Mexico-and have for decades.
These planes should be heading to Cold Lake ,Alberta for Maple Flag 04.

There are more pic and topics in the military forum.

They both left yesterday afternoon. I think that the Luftwaffe saw the Milwaukee women and were repulsed by them, so the decided not to conquer our fair city and flew out of here.

Sure the Germans invading America the C-160D carries the new secret weapon called "V3" - 5000 gallons of real beer. Big grin

I would guess the Tornados are on their way to Holloman AFB or another training center. We haven't a bombing range where effective bomb-training is possible. This is due to the high population density in Germany.

- Maybe they are in Wisconsin early for "The Airventure?"  Innocent

- I have met a couple pilots from Germany that are stationed in New Mexico and they were complete gentlemen, nice as can be.  Smokin cool They were at Oshkosh at the time.

"The Airventure" isnt for a couple more months, so i don't think they're here for that quite yet.

OK let me try this again, the planes should be on their way to Cold Lake, Alberta for Maple Flag 2004.
They are on the schedule for the first rotation. There are three overall lasting two weeks each.
