43 air spanish grupo force training

Spanish Air Force Grupo 43 training
#1
Took a picture of an unusual looking plane when I was on the beach at El Cotillo on Tuesday. I've just come across an article published on Janet Anscombe dated 30th April which ties in with it:

The 43 Grupo of the Spanish Air Force, whose main mission is forest fire extinction, will again be carrying out training exercises throughout the Canaries next week. The Air Force says that between 6 and 10 May there will be two planes training out of Gando in Gran Canaria, in conjunction with the Military Emergencies Unit and the Ministry of Ag, Foods & Environment. Flights will cover all the islands so we will have a good chance to get to see these professionals training in readiness for the summer fire risk season: the best chance to spot them will be near the coast, reservoirs and forest areas, and naturally, if anyone does see them it’s important to know that there is no cause for concern.

Saw three army/airforce jets coming in to land at the airport yesterday. The noise from them was something else 🙂🙂

Yes, we saw (and heard) them. From the noise it didn't seem as if they landed, does anyone know?

My Dad & Son were in the airport at the time (caught up in the delays due to French traffic control strike) & saw at least one take off. They all had wheels down & on approach when I saw them so I would say all landed 🙂

They read the whole thread and diverted the flights elsewhere, I guess 🤣
