Frisian Flag 2014

Quick 3-days Dutch transfer to take photos at exercise Frisian Flag 2014.
Frisian Flag 2014 focuses on COMAOs (COMbined Air Operations), missions which require coordinating packages of several dozens combat aircraft.

The exercise took place in Leeuwarden airbase.

The Royal Netherlands Air Force deployed several F-16s, both based in Leeuwarden and redeployed from Volkel.

Other participants included a Dassault Falcon 20 providing ECM support (based in Leeuwarden, but I missed my chance to see it), with tanker support from Italian KC-767s, German A310s and Dutch KDC-10s based in Eindhoven, and AWACS support from E-3 Sentry flying from their homebase in Geilenkirchen.
