Ramstein

Recommended Posts

I don't know the answer to the question at hand.

But, I do have a comment.

You might have spent time at Ramstein if........

"If you know the way to the Firehouse restaurant that serves the best authentic German food around."

Hmmm don't know that one. I was at Zwei (85-89) and remember a place on Ramstein called "Chicken Every Sundae". Also remember getting lots of parts for my Ford van from the MWR junkyard. And really remember all the cars with the spotlights inside on 40 Mark Strasse outside Vogelweh (you tend to remember things like that when they are pointed out by a VERY observant 5 year old daughter).

PS, didn't mean to hijack the thread.

Sorry, Bob, but with a subject title like "Ramstein," this thread is gonna get hijacked all over the place.

I don't know about the Firehouse restaurant @ Ramstein, but I do remember the German kanteen down by the motorpool at R/M. Brats & beer. If I remember correctly (a real challenge at times), wasn't there also a German kanteen near the tower?

"Joint Forge" reminded me of the Reforger exercises every year. Some little VW or a house would always get accidentally crushed by an Army tank -- never failed to happen every year.

another 'jacker here..cantine was great, stopped in every morning for coffee and shokocroissant. lunch was "uber" as well...

Firehouse was good, however I was big fan of the Wooden Spoon by sembach...El Capricios(I know, Italian in Germany??) in Ramstein village was another one of my favorites...my "date" place. Big fan of the Alpine breakfast at the hotels in the winter...Man food for a big day on the slopes-lot of calories to burn off

stopped in for a few hours on the way back from a deployment...like anything, place changed drastically since I left ('04)...did manage to get a Doner for lunch, and hit the Shoppette for some eiswine and a case of my favorite-Hefeweisen!!

LOVED my time there, would go back in a heart beat....J's shut the door on some of us for that option...oh well, good for J people....enjoy it!!!!,,, I did.

The first date means when people/ airplane spotters first reported it seen.

and last was the last time it was reported.

I got this info out of the scramble data base

Look at www.scramble.nl and look in database

It is a rich database and it's very much up to date.

It is a very good site. In the P-3 world they move aircraft between squadrons faster than most change underwear, and these guys manage to keep up pretty good. Surprisingly, (no, not really) They are better than the Instruction the Navy puts out quarterly with aircraft locations. LOL

It will be a bit before those make it. There are currently a big zero of them in Final Assembly... Wanna say we have 2 for Dyess AFB, Two for the Netherlands, A KC-130J for the Jarheads, and then as the photo of the month shows in Position 6, is the first HC-130J

P3 super bee,

I hate to tell you but the Netherlands didn't order any C-130J's

They just had 2 old EC-130Q's completely rebuild by Derco in the UK.

My best bet is that you ment NORWAY.

LOL You are correct. I had Netherlands on the brain, was chat with a EX P-3 F/E from the Netherlands a little before the post. Good catch.

It is a pain in the butt keeping the -J tails straight, since each unit gets individual numbers.

Hi all

My first post to the forum, I just joined today. I'm trying to sort out the tie-ups from tail number to construction number for some recent J's. This is what I had before reading this thread:

08-8607 5616

07-8608 5619

07-8609 5620

06-8610 5621

06-8611 5622

06-8612 5623

06-8613 5624

08-8614 5625

Much of the above came from Lars Olausson's Hercules Production List.

Having read this thread, I now have this revised list:

08-8607 5616

07-8608 5619

07-8609 5623

06-8610 5620

06-8611 5619

06-8612 5621

07-8613 5624 - or FY06?

07-8614 5625

Leaving 5622 unaccounted for. :confused:

Hoping some of you experts or those with contacts in LMCO can sort this out for me ?

Thanks,

Nige.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the kind words on Scramble.

I am one of many (about fifty) editors trying to keep track on what is going on in military and civil aviation.

For some years now, I am responsible for the USAF and US Army database, which holds some 100,000 records. Our info is generated from many sources (factories, aviation enthusiasts, magazines and the thousands of aviation forums online).

Also the input from this forum helps us out a lot. A special thanks to Bob to his enormous knowledge of the C-130. He has helped me out several times in the past.

If you have any comments, updates or suggestions to improve the data in our databases do not hesitate to contact me directly or fill in the 'Send Update'- form with each database.

Below a review of the 37th AS 86th AW situation, as we have it.

On 1 April 209, 08-8601 was delivered to Spangdahlem AB, before being officially handed over to Ramstein AB on 7 April 2009. The rest was all flown directly to Ramstein AB.

08-8601 5609 d/d 01apr09

08-8602 5611 d/d 03jun09

08-8603 5613 d/d 14aug09

08-8604 5612 d/d 30jul09

08-8605 5615 d/d 17sep09

08-8606 5614 d/d 13sep09

08-8607 5616 d/d 11nov09

07-8608 5622 noted LM dec09

07-8609 5623 not yet delivered

06-8610 5620 d/d 23dec09

06-8611 5619 d/d 20nov09

06-8612 5621 d/d 23dec09

07-8613 5624 not yet delivered

07-8614 5625 not yet delivered

Tailnumbers of the aircraft not yet delivered need confirmation.

This situation is a bit different from a couple of months ago when it was thought to be like this:

08-8608 5619

08-8609 5620

08-8610 5621

06-8611 5622

06-8612 5623

06-8613 5624

06-8614 5625

I guess LM swapped a couple of airframes to expedite deliveries to Canada.

07-8609 may now be enroute to Ramstein. A C-130 using mode-S code AE2210 with the callsign HKY99 passed through the Mid-Atlantic region today, in the Virginia area between 10-10:30 am local. I guess we'll have to wait a bit to see what shows up across the pond.
