Hi,

Westland Whirlwind HAR.3 XG576/CU-590 seems to have found a new home.
Last week it arrived at the Foets company in Paal-Beringen (Belgium).

The plan is to lift onto the roof of their building for use as an eyecatcher.
In the near future they will also get a Fiat G91 (source unknown) and T28 Trojan (acquired in the USA)

Greetz

Laurent,

Should be XG576.
The G-91 could be the one that is preserved in Tessenderlo.

Ciao

Is the number of the Lynx at the container XZ176?

Also noted today was a F-104 with German serial 26+44. This one went to Turkey, anyone for the correct number?

Thanks in advance

No, its XZ641(/A; this letter can still vaguely be seen on the pax door). This was checked and reported on the previous page. XZ176 is at Wieringerwerf.

Always going forward... still can't find reverse!

I understand there is a "new" Alpha Jet as well, 40+51 from Bentlage, can somebody confirm this? And is it visible from outside by any chance?

Thanks! That site gives another interesting bit of info, it says that F-104 23+01 is at Baarlo now and even has a recent picture of it taken inside. EMOOS however says that the cockpit of 23+01 went to Germany (Waldbrunn) and the website http://www.916-starfighter.de/Large/Pole/2301po.htm seems to confirm this. Obviously the cockpit of 23+01 can't be at two places at the same time, so the question (I think) is: which cockpit is in Waldbrunn??

After my last visit on 20.10.2018 I compared old pictures with new ones. I came to the decision that the 26 + 44 can only be 26 + 30 ex MST. The reason is the "23 + 01" = 26 + 30 was seen in July 2018 at Baarlo with 23 + 01 license plate which was replaced. But the hull is the 26 + 30 recognizable compared to earlier pictures.
Furthermore I saw two F-104 hulls in Kessel once (24+89 with fin) training aid code C054 readable and 1 unknow F-104 without back part (the real 23+01???).
Who can help?

Hi, I try to follow you, but am not sure whether I do. Are you saying that the aircraft marked as 23+01 on the Eurodemobbed site is actually 26+30, and that this one is now painted as 26+44?
