Fighter Escort For Homecoming Dutch Team

Mon Jul 12, 2010 6:29 pm

The Dutch football team flew back from Johannesburg today and when entering Dutch airspace they were met by two F16s, one of which was painted orange for the occasion.

A nice gesture, even if the players weren't in a party mood anymore...

That's not true. It's already orange for a long time, not painted for this occasion. That's the F-16 of the RNAF used for promotion flights. Also when Holland was playing against Hungary last May (their last match in Holland before the WC) this one was used as a good luck fly over the stadium.

I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".
