Tag der Bundeswehr 2015 Nörvenich
 
Latest update: January 2016
 
In 2015 the German department of defense organised the Tag der Bundeswehr 'Armed Forces Day' with several bases from the Air Force, Navy and Army opening its doors to the public. One day before the Tag der Bundeswehr the Taktische Luftwaffengeschwader 31 "Boelcke" based at Nörvenich organized an aviation enthusiast / spotters day where the photographs were taken. No flying took place as the runway was in used for the static display of aircraft and other material. At the end of the afternoon a thunder storm approached the air base therefore the fighter aircraft were towed into shelters or hangars. Except the Eurofighters the base also accomodates a UH-1D Huey on SAR duty (not seen on the aviation enthusiast day).
