1993 was a great year to be an aviation enthusiast in the Netherlands. One of the absolute highlights that year and maybe one of the highlights of my entire spotting existence was the deployment of the 49th TFW F-117 Nighthawks to Gilze-Rijen AB. I also had the chance to visit Spangdahlem AB a few times that year. Other cool trips were an airshow at Cambrai, France and of course the RIAT'93 at RAF Fairford, UK.
