Spotterday 2003



One of the first contacts to the wing for me after theairshow in 2001 was the spotter's day in 2003 on a splendid summer day. In the morning several Phantoms from JG71 at Wittmund left Neuburg for an exercise to Goose Bay- providing an unforgettable sight of an endless row of F-4F on the last chance, and taking care of a smoky horizon after their departure.

During the rest of the day the busy daily flying could be photographed from different vantage points around the airfield and some rare visitors as an US ARMY RC-12 or a E-3A AWACS, which was re-routed from nearby Manching by the friendly tower crew, provided welcomed sights as well.
