Fighter Jets flying over Rotterdam

Fri May 24, 2019 9:53 am

Guys, I just saw two jets flying over Rotterdam at an altitude of 300-400m. Is there a reason for that? We usually never get f-35s or f-16s flying that low.

Was it a farwell sortie of the f-16s, or just a regular exercise?

Thanks for the responses!

According to the Scramble message board there's a lot of military activity at Rotterdam today. The USNS Medgar Evers is coming into port and an GAF A400M has come into RTM. So the fighter jets must have something to do with those visits.

Too bad I could not see them as I'm not at work because of my holiday.

In the Soviet days, the only question would have, what color were the stars?

A fighter jet reception for a replenishment ship?
