Miscellaneous Photographs Eindhoven Airbase 2009

The first shot I took in 2009 was a real winner for me, a Falcon 900 departing into a very nice sunset. Two months later I brought my camera again to take some shots of the RAF Beech 200 that visited Eindhoven. An aircraft which is rarely seen in The Netherlands. A month later a Merlin of the Royal Danish Air Force visited Eindhoven for a short fuel stop.


On June 23rd two RAF transports visited Eindhoven. The Tristar brought three injured Dutch soldiers back home from Afghanistan. The Hercules flew in a new crew for the Tristan from Brize Norton, as the other crew was at the maximum of their crew duty time. One month later a Canadian Polaris visited Eindhoven to bring Canadian soldier which participated in the Four Days Marches in Nijmegen.


In September we saw a unusual visitor at Eindhoven when a C-130 of the Royal Jordanian Air Force made a night stop at Eindhoven. A full report on this visit can be found here. Two months later the new C-17A of the Heavy Airlift Wing visited for the first time.
