Wittmund Air Base in Wittmundhafen, Niedersachsen, is home to the Luftwaffe's last operational F-4F wing, JG 71 "Richthofen". The smokey,
relatively large jet can make one feel quite nostalgic. The Phantoms will continue to serve until JG 71 till 2012.
25th of January H.J. van Ommeren, Vincent Hoogervorst and me visited the Wittmund Air Base on a very very cold winterday.
