Raleigh,

I wasn't by the radios, so I didn't hear them land. I just saw them on ADS-B and I guess my old eyes let me down (again) o_O

Easy to confuse the two planes as JF002 has the lower reg and hex than JF001

There are still 12 NATO arrivals I can't find, see blanks in the attached PDF in case anyone can help.

further on Atlantic City Airshow --- basically no money to fund the show.....


Philly Inquirer article reports that Thunderbirds and Blue Angels no longer available for mid week airshows.
I assumed T-Birds dropping the show was the final nail and the Polaris Ghost Squadron replacement team also bailed.
Ocean City MD airshow also didn't get either of the Big two acts this year but got a few good demos anyway.
USAF says T-Birds could return again someday but would have to be weekend show.

Well Finland got ride from Sweden due to aircraft issues....so that eliminates the Finnish aircraft......

Finnish President Alexander Stubb is attending a Nato summit in Washington, DC on Tuesday hosted by US President Joe Biden to commemorate 75 years of the alliance.

Stubb announced on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter) that a plane delay impacted his arrival on Tuesday, but confirmed that he would be in Washington on time for the summit's official start.

On Tuesday, Stubb posted a photo on Facebook with Swedish PM Ulf Kristersson on a plane.

"Sweden can be trusted. After all the travel hassle, I'm getting a ride to Washington from Ulf," Stubb said in his post.


In addition to Stubb, the Finnish delegation to the summit in the US capital includes Foreign Minister Elina Valtonen (NCP) and Defence Minister Antti Häkkänen (NCP).

Checking a bit further it appears some heads of state travel commerical airlines of their countries in either first or business class versus using special aircraft, Norway for example. Others simply do not have aircraft which means commercial /corporate travel is required. I have seen others use private business jets (loaned to the government) or companies based in Malta with high end business jets for executive travel.

Any known information on the NATO Summit flyover aircraft? Saw it was 4X F-22's and 4X F-35's, which bases did they come from, and were they F-35A's?
P-6 said on his video report due to evening T-Storm in area the jets were cancelled and sent back to Langley
and WH events moved indoors.

Nice list. Thanks for putting it together. I checked a web site that lists all arrivals into ADW and there was nothing there to fill in your "holes" in your list.

Got a little help from NATO pool videos, but only tails from Romania (LX-JNE) and Spain (T.22-2), UK plane never showed tail and Sweden (Finland flew with them) the tail is too light to read. (NATO photos not mine)
