In 2000 military aircraft came once again to my attention. Since 1994 I never stopped looking up when some fighter jet came down low and hard. So in 2000 I decided to visit the annual air show at Volkel and the superb COMAO (COMbined Air Operations) exercise at Kleine Brogel, which once again made my restart my old hobby. From this time onward though I would always make photographs when going on a trip.

A LOT had changed since 1994 - making it more interesting for me to start again. The KLu had KDC10's, C130's, Apaches and Chinooks. Other Air Forces introduced new types like the Eurofighter/ Typhoon - and air forces started to become smaller...
