Spotting

In 2003 I deployed to Iraq for 5 months in support of my unit for Stabilization Force Iraq (SFIR). This photoreport gives an overview of the aircraft and helicopters that could be seen in the operational theatre. 

In 2007 I joined Ian Allan Tours for a spottingtrip to Albania, Macedonia and Bulgaria. Albania was my main goal even though the Albanian Airforce has only limited helicopters operational their airbases are well known for the aircraft storage outside and inside the mountains.

As part of setting up the NATO Heavy Airlift Wing I participated in the airfield inspection of Papa Airbase for future operations by the C-17s.

In December 2009 I had the possibility to photograph the nightflying of RNLAF F-16s at Volkel Airbase in The Netherlands which was organised by Spotting Group Volkel.

On 9 May 2015 the 70th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany "Den Pobedy" was celebrated on and over the Red Square in Moscow. This is one of the best occasions to see Russian military hardware.
