40 Years MLM Soesterberg

Post by PiPoServisAir »

Hello all,

Tonight i was at 40 years anniversary of the MLM Soesterberg. They show the new plane in there collection. It is a former Fouga CM-170 Magister from the Belgium air force. The serial is MT 51, and that is strange, because when i read this site http://belmilac.wetpaint.com/page/Potez ... ter?t=anon there where only serials from: MT01 - MT25, MT26 - MT50. But it is there new beauty in there collection. Nice paint job, and in good condition, if you see that this beauty is 40 years old. i also hear that the Commando in chef of KLu have say yesterday that in 2013 the army museum from Delft will be located in Soesterberg. Hope you all like the photo's, the place where they show the plane was not that spotter friendly.

When you take look at the rear/last part of the canopy it must be a former FAF Fouga. The BAF Fouga's had a covered/closed rear/last canopy part !

Also the serial is fake as there never was a BAF Fouga MT 51 (same "trick" like Hunter N-321 ;-) )

BR,

No, it is the ex AdlA 045, also known as former F-GSHG of DHJA.

Is this aircraft going to be parked inside or is it going to be another moss-collection like the 32nd TFS aircraft?

At the "static-line" in MLM the F-100 Sabre was gone. And the F-86 of Twenthe is now the gate keeper next to the static line. I hear that this Fouga will be show inside, but they didn't know, because they also get the old gate keeper of EHTW.

There was also a Yellow F-104 with 40 Years MLM theme on the tail.

The rest of the plane is yellow total, with paintings from children over it.

Thus far (as far as I know) only Dutch and Soesterberg based USAFE aircraft were displayed in the museum.
Does anyone know why a Belgian plane is being displayed now? Maybe because Dutch pilots were trained on the Magister, or did the museum change its course and will more foreign aircraft be bought?

They have a MiG 21 too, for quite some while, didn't know these were operated by USAFE or the Dutch Armed Forces.

Are you sure about this id? Their other CM.170, 374/F-GPHU, was destined for the museum at Soesterberg, and has also been reported there last year. Was there a swop after all?
