February
The reason for going to Eindhoven on the 2nd February was the presence of the UC-35 Citation from the US Army, beside this nice little airplane I saw the landing of a Swiss registrated Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 650 and the regular traffic from Ryanair.

March

 

Testing a new lens is not easy when the weather is bad, but I gave it a try and went on the 20th of March to Eindhoven. When I arrived already a plane arrived. It was the Hawker Beechcraft 390 Premier IA (LZ-PDM) afterwards some arrivals and departures from regular airliners as Ryanair, Transavia and Wizzair followed. The Royal Netherlands Air Force departed with a KDC-10 and arrived with the C-130. As surprise two Beech 200 King Air’s from the Royal Air Force appeared for a fuel stop after coming back from Denmark.

At the end of March Dirk went several times to Eindhoven because the excercise Eart was held there, later more from this excercise in another larger report. Now we focus on what else could be seen. On the 25th I saw a lot of activity in the form of different commercial airliners like Transavia, Ryanair, Jetairfly and Wizzair. I was lucky that on this sunny day the special painted Wizzair bird (HA-LYG) was on deck. This special livery was created by someone from Malta by participating in a competition from Wizzair to create a livery. This paint is added for Budapest as candidate for the Olympic games in 2024. After a time it departed for another sunny destination. I only saw one military movement this day: the Belgian Air Force with a C-130H. Also two little planes could be seen in the form of a Ruschmeyer R-90-230RG and an in 1981 built Reims F172P.

On the 26th I had company from Levie for some time spotting, at this day the usual Ryanair and Wizzair could be seen. Beside the airliners we had a nice military visitor from Canada, they came to Eindhoven with their CC-150 Polaris, otherwise known as an Airbus 310.

On the 29th again the regular Lowcost Airliners from Ryanair, Wizzair and Transavia could be seen but also the Royal Netherlands Air Force with the C-130 and some smaller planes. The Cessna 172N (PH-BSF) had a fight with the strong Crosswind that day.
