NATO Airbase Geilenkirchen, just across the border in Germany is the headquarters of the NATO Airborne Early Warning & Control Force (NAEW&CF). This multi-national unit flies and maintains the AWACS aircraft. 

During a base visit with Onze Luchtmacht we were briefed about the daily operations of this unit, we got an extensive walk-around the AWACS, including a look inside and we were even allowed in the control tower, from where I could take some nice shots of the platform.

All in all, yet another great day!
