DFDT teams up with HCC at FS Weekend 2014

After a year’s absence, the Dutch Flanker Display Team will return to AvioDrome for the International Flightsimulator Weekend on 1-2 November.

This year, we will be part of the HCC Flightsimulator stand, and operating mainly under their name.
We will be located in the foyer (turn right after entering the museum), you can find us in the far left corner.

During this year’s FS Weekend, we will be displaying (amongst others) the newest and most realistic DCS module: DCS MiG-21bis.
Besides showing off the incredible detail of this astonishing aircraft, we will also perform mixed formations, with up to four different types of aircraft in one formation (modern and vintage jets, WW2 warbirds and even helicopters!)

As usual, feel free to ask questions, that’s what we’re there for!
If we’re not in a formation, just come over to one of our pilots, he will be happy to answer all your questions.

New website

We thought it was time for a new look to the DFDT website.

Since we received many positive reactions about a previous design, we decided to use that one as a base to build this new website.

We hope you like it.

International Flightsim Weekend 2012

During the first weekend of November, the Aviodrome museum at Lelystad Airport in the Netherlands will once again host the biggest flightsim event in the world.
Over 300 participants will show the public what flightsimming is all about, from the simplest desktop to a full-blown working cockpit of an F-16, F-104 and Boeing 737.
There will even be several home-made 6DOF motion platforms on display.

For a complete list of participants and more info on opening times and entrance fees, visit www.fsweekend.com and www.aviodrome.nl

The Dutch Flanker Display Team will be entertaining the crowd with close formation flights (usually extremely low), dog fights and checkrides for those who are interested.
Since there will be no internet connection at the event, we will not be flying DCS, but sticking to FC2 instead.

It’s Official DFDT added SU-33 to the fleet.

Early morning at Sochi the DFDT SU-33 was spotted at paint rollout and first flight in the new colours.  At landing Pilot Liger Zero noticed spotters on the roof of a nearby building.  After the report of spotters we decided to make it official.  Also these photos appeared on the aviation forums again.

Around 6 AM the DFDT Su33 was spotted at roll out. ( Photo 1 )

Furthermore the plane was spotted at landing ( Photo 2 and 3 ) The pilot Noticed the Spotters and did a Low-Level FlyBy for confirmation ( Photo 4 )

Is this the New Dutch Flanker Display Team Su-33 ???

During a Spottersday at Sochi 2 spotters managed to take a Photo of an Su-33 being sprayed in the main hangar at Sochi.

They posted on several forums that this aircraft is the NEW DFDT  Demo aircraft.

DFDT Squad leader Joe Kurr said this in a official notice:

We are planning to purchase 1 or even more new aircraft. Which one, we cannot tell at the moment. All I can say is that these planes are being tested as we speak.

On the question about the recently spotted Ex IAF Su-30 MKI and Russian Knight Su-30 . His Email reply was short he said: No comment
