Realize that this reportage is very special,few people get access to Indonesian Defense Forces
Here some Indonesian F-16's at Iswahjudi AFB, Madiun East Java
Our fortune was both one-, and two-seater 
Pilots, groundcrews and staff received us extremely friendly !
A view at the Iswahjudi Tower, and some F-5 'Tigers' 
The F-5's demonstrated us low flying, and parachute landings
After every flight there is a large ground crew for checking out the machine
Iswahjudi Tower and Main building, and a plate in front of it
Some badges taken from the shoulders of the pilots
This is a special CELEBRATION !!!
A young pilot reached his 1000 Hrs on the F-5 and gets a speech from the Basecommander
Also he gets a special badge, and a golden ring - as well as a special treatment !
He is honoured by all squadronmates with water, flowers and... eggs in his flightsuit !!
Finally some squadron pictures are taken before he can have a nice shower and clean clothes
Next to the F-16 and F-5 Iswahjudi houses the Hawk, hardly ever seen somewhere
Also this type was flown for our benefit, nice to see !
