Welcome to Phantomaviation.nl

The website covers military aviation through articles covering exercises, squadrons, aviation reports (defence and budget reviews) and provides a summarized news section maintained by month. Focus of the website and its contents is aimed at the NATO countries. Based on press releases made by DoDs, aircraft companies etc. a quarterly overview of ordered and delivered aircraft is provided. For a number of aircraft more detailed information (country, operator, aircraft type, ordered, delivered) can be found in the aircraft section. The country section either provides an overview of aircraft and helicopters ordered and delivered and can include an unit (squadron, wing, group) overview but might also just contain one or more photographs. Countries are presented by continent and a country is added when at least one photograph is available.

All photo's on the website are made by me and are not allowed to be used without prior written approval.
