Similar to the past years the Falcon Leap exercise was held the weeks before the Market Garden commemoration. With 3 missions flown daily, I usually can quite easily time a quick visit to Eindhoven in between work to photograph the participants. This year however, due to Covid a base visit was understandably not possible, but the situation at work did not help either and I only got two chances to go to the airfield. I picked new spots for both occasions: the first week, during the golden hour I stood at Friture Beatrix. The second week I picked the top floor of P3, but unfortunately the sun was already almost in line with the runway, making light conditions less than perfect.
In the end I got a few shots that were worthwhile, let's hope next year will be better.
