USA East Coast Tour,  3-16 May 2005

Finally after a few months of planning we departed on May 3rd 2005 from Amsterdam-Schiphol to Washington-Dulles IAP. Unfortunately most of our request for base visit were denied by the local authorities. That left us the only chance: gain access to most airbases we had to use our military ID's. As you will read in the following pages we succeeded at most airbases and stayed overnight at some airbases, including five night at NAS Oceana.


After a flight of 8 hours we arrived at Washington-Dulles IAP, where we picked up our rental car, a Chevrolet Trailblazer. From this point our 2 week East Coast tour started. We visited around 25 airbases, including the airshows at MCAS Cherry Point and Langley AFB.


Besides these airbases we visited we also had some spare time to visit Manhattan and Washington D.C. Ofcourse I took a lot of pictures during this tour, so this is only a small collection of them. I hope you enjoy them!! (Click here for a full log)
