Gannet AEW.3 XL450 at Hermeskeil, 1st August 2007; Coen Steenbeeke

XL450 appears to be in excellent condition and is supposedly at Hermeskeil for maintenance, having moved from Mönchengladbach for this purpose. However the aircraft has now been at Hermeskeil for some time and doesn't look likely to return to its previous location. She has been repainted in recent years (albeit in somewhat incorrect colours) and the canopy has, for some reason, been replaced by a custom-made item of the wrong shape, with flat sides and only a slight curve on top instead of the large bubble canopy normally seen.
