Where? Lagerlechfeld, Germany
When? 09/2010

The Combined Joint Personnel Recovery Standardisation Course (CJPRSC) 2010 took place at the Lechfeld AB with a strong participation by the Italian, French and German Armed Forces. This course aims to improve to cooperation and standardization in multi-national CSAR missions.

The need to do so was identified during the VOLCANEX exercises in 2002-2006 and subsequently the EAG (European Air Group) did initiate a specialized CSAR course "to enhance knowledge and proficiency required to execute a CSAR mission in a non permissive, international environment".

The need to do so was clearly reflected by the participating nations, especially when looking at their current worldwide missions, e.g. inAfghanistan. They can surley profit of the acquired knowledge and thus brought a huge diversity of aircraft to Lechfeld.

The Italian Armed Forces (Air Force and Navy) did send several aircraft and ground crews to Lechfeld: HH-3F Pelikan, SH-3H Sea King, AW101 Merlin, AB212 and two AMX light attack aircraft.

Shuttleworth Airshow 2018
Where? Shuttleworth Collection, Old Warden Airfield, Biggleswade, UK
When? 14 July 2018

Flying displays at the Shuttleworth Collection are classic events. This is even more valid for their evening displays that usually provide a well balanced selection of the Collection’s extensive collection presented in the last hours of sunlight. And with the wind being mostly calm around that time the chances are high to see the famous Edwardian aircraft doing their circuits over the airfield.

This year marked the air show’s 8th edition, and it clearly has a promising future.

The Hispano Aviacion HA-200 "Saeta" ("Arrow") is one of the last designs fully developed by Willy Messerschmitt. It had its first flight on August, 12th 1955 in Sevilla.
50 years later I have been invited to do an air-air photo session with the only remaining airworthy HA-200 in Germany. It is part of the impressive collection of the "Messerschmitt Stiftung" and operated by EADS from their site in Manching.
