Frisian Flag ’16

Every year, the Dutch Air Force Base at Leeuwarden holds the ‘Frisian Flag’ exercise. This is a joint military exercise and lasts 2 weeks, with morning and afternoon missions. It usually attracts a couple foreign (NATO) Air Forces as well. For this edition, the Air Base played host to American F-15’s, Belgian F-16’s, British Tornados, French Mirages, German Eurofighters and Polish F-16’s. Plus of course a number of Dutch F-16’s. This was the first time in the 8 years that I’ve lived ‘up North’ that I’ve attended the event and man did I have fun!
