Twenthe Air Base is next Leeuwarden and Volkel one of three Dutch F-16 airfields. Twenthe is the home base of the no 313 Squadron and the no 315 Squadron. Special was that many German Phantoms from Rheine-Hopsten would fly from Twenthe in this period. The runway at Hopsten is currently undergoing renovations. During this day unfortunately not many planes would fly. The F-4F Phantoms from Hopsten were not active for an unknown reason. Eventually, only three F-16s were flying; one of them was a visitor from Leeuwarden. The only two F-16s from Twenthe which would fly were both two-seaters of which one had markings of the no 306 Squadron from Volkel Air Base.
