Saw an AH-64 chopping by the other day, and PC-7's regularly buzzing overhead. (Woensdrecht AFB)

But... It'll be airshow season here in June!
Got planned: 11th June - Airshow Dutch Airforce (first public performance of F-35!)
25th of June - Airshow Belgian Airforce (T-28 Trojan! First time seeing one of those for me)

I hope to post some pics after that!
I'll be taking my 4-year old daughter too. I'll make an aviation enthusiast of her yet! :D

A Blackhawk went just south of my house earlier today at around 1,000 ft AGL. Pretty cool, it was going west to east.

Spotted Qatar B787, Qatar A330 (unusual, possibly an 'F') and other common fly-ers....IndiGo A320, A320E, A320neo...SpiceJet.... the only problem today is that wind is west bound!

Hence landing is East-bound! and i stay in the ground floor surrounded by a lot of buildings! :(

so a small slit in between them gives me two seconds to identify the aircrafts coming in at about close to 1000ft....!

as i type...there goes an IndiGo A320E :P :D

Easterly/north-easterly winds here today so traffic is south-north. On my way back from work, a KC-10 was on the downwind for RWY 35R at OKC, it went overhead as I had stopped at a red light.

And just now, a B-1B bomber just passed right over my house at around 3,000 feet AGL, gear and flaps down, wings fully extended outward in the landing configuration. It became louder as the turbojets kicked in just as it turned left for final :D.

There was no electricity in the afternoon and evening due to rain and sust storm, and i had nothing to do.

So the aviation bug was made to infect again,.... You know you can control it just like Hank from X-Men :lol:

So sitting outside and i spotted: Cathay Pacific B747, Druk Air A319, the standard guys-indigo, spicejet, and jet Airways there was a NEO once, Emirates B777, and then an unusual Qatar A330F (and man! What a steep takeoff!)

Then there was the C-17 GM-III! Wow! That whale!

I spotted a Bhutan Air A319 few days ago and today, while driving past the airport in the morning, spotted the mighty IL-76 :)

By the way, it's night time..... no electricity with frequent rains and prevailed dust storm... :)
