No photo's yet of the departure?

arrived at the airport 0830 and was able to take a really sunny picture, with some of the cargo (race horses) ready for loading



The RAF Avia Antonov was there again as well



and then the long wait began... loading took longer than expected and there was some trouble with the ground crew. During our wait, some nice aircraft arrived.

British Citation



French Citation



Isle-of-Man Pilatus



Turkish TransAll Very Happy



and then finally the C-17 started to move... I thought the startup of an Antonov 124 took long, but this took way longer! Meanwhile no sun at the airport anymore...















and after the C-17 left, the rain was back! Great visitor, I hope it comes back one day (or one of their others!)

I always wondered what these brownish strips or patches were on the C-17s. You see them clearly on both sides of the fuselage and the tail. Anyone around who knows what their purpose is?
Thanks for enlightening me!

Those are kinds of lights,or reflective strips. When it's dark, it's lighted in green. Swiss F18s and some other fighters have that aswell, check at 20sec : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rfTw1BgwY0&feature=related
