    Were you ever lucky to see those Su-17's fly?

    Not at Templin-Gross Dolln. I have seen them flying at Neuruppin, there was the second regiment equipped with Su-17M4s. They came in very low over the public road when landing. Also great view on them taxiing to the runway and see them take off. The Third unit, a recce unit with Su-17M3s was already withdrawn when I visited that base (Allstedt).

    A nice site to experience the atmosphere back then is

    Lots of pictures and stories about the 16th air army and all the plane spotters running around
