Re: EBBL 2020

D-HCBR Airbus helicopter H145M is iets voor middernacht geland op KB. Ofwel voor fuelstop of voor overnight. Heli zou van Airbus zelf zijn en heeft heel de avond getest op Pampa Range. https://www.airfighters.com/photo/244986/M/Hungary-Air-Force/Airbus-Helicopters-H145M/D-HCBR/ Die staat al sinds m...

Re: Did the Brazilian Air Force operate Mirages 5?

This appears to be correct. This is what I have in my files regarding the Congolese Air Force Mirages : M201 Mirage VDM to LFBZ in 1989, to Brazil as 4908 M202 Mirage VDM w/o 081278 mid-air collision with M410 M203 Mirage VDM to LFBZ in 1989, to Brazil as 4909 The Miage M201 and M203 were brought ba...

You're correct, it's 26+47 (that was a type).

The identity of the G91 is different as well, it now appears to be 32+58/5 (also ex Baarlo), and not 99+05.

Kind regards,

Re: Baarlo & Kessel (collection)

Where did the Thunderstreak P-263 go in Belgium? Didn't find the answer on this question in this topic, but the P-263 is now preserved in Tessenderlo in Belgium. It's with the same owner who also has the Westland Whirlwind (XG576), but not at the same location. The Whirlwind is now roof-mounted at ...

Today OO-LUM is expected at Brussel. Is this one of the new Falcons? Hmmm... if OO-LUM is 1 of the 2, what would the odds be that the second will be OO-FAE? :wink: :roll: Registration OO-LUM and OO-FAE were already confirmed several months ago.

Re: Beauvechain (EBBE) 2019 MIL

Apparently excercise THPU is going on until next week, any foreign participants this year ? On Tuesday, April 2nd, a German NH90 from Fassberg was noted a EBBE, probably a partipant of THPU. https://scontent.fbru1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/56222401_10218464072142559_5021755936637714432_n.jpg?_nc_cat...

Re: Kleine Brogel 8, 9 September - Belgian Air Force Days

During arrival and departure days, a lot of participating aircraft joined a "Skyvan" before landing/after departing, which meant that these aircraft did not have any fuel left for any flybys at KB. So what is the story about the "Skyan"? Military aircraft, payed by the taxpayer, have to invest thei...

There where posts that the static was not on the parallel runway this year but only on the southern platform.
With about 27 aircraft in the static (including an A400 and AWACS) this seems to be a very unlikely setup !
