1990 - 1991

I became interested in Military Aviation in 1989. I lived near Gilze-Rijen Air Base in the Netherlands and would spend many hours there checking out the local NF-5's and the many visitors that would come by. Unfortunately, I didn't own any good photography equipment. All I had for those first few years was a little pocket camera. Later in 1991 I bought my first basic camera with a 135mm lens but I knew nothing about photography which explains the quality of the pictures. I still wanted to post them because they have some historical significance. Below you'll find picture of aircraft that have been retired, units that have been disbanded and bases that have been closed. It also pains a picture of what plane spotting in Europe was like in the early 90's Hope you enjoy them.
