Sion airport - remains of British transport aircraft

When traveling by train through Sion, the track goes along Sion airport with pretty good sight on runway, parkings, ... For some year, a few old civil aircraft, none of them looking airworthy, are visible. Among them is what remains of an old (probably) British transport aircraft : fuselage, (twin) ...

Re: Campia Turzii Open House

Great ! Always nice to watch old Migs.
By the way do you know how many Mig-21 and IAR-99 are still actually flying ?

And what about the ex-spanish Mirages F-1 ?
Did Argentine drop the plan to buy about 14 of them ?

Re: Belgian Fete National 21 July/Defile Militaire

The best place, as far as I know after 20 years living in the area, is either at Cinquantenaire square (you will see the planes coming from the west right in front of you and you'll have plenty of time to get the camera ready), or a little bit further at the begining of Tervueren avenue (around squa...

Re: German Sea Kings - Nordholz

Congratulations !
Great pictures. Thanks a lot.
And beautifull old birds still soldiering on. I must say that I don't get used to the new ones, like NH-90, P-8 or Merlin : they all seem tasteless to me...
So please keep showing us those Sea Kings, Sea Lynxes or other vintages, real pilots planes.

Re: Kiev Borispol CIV GOV and MIL

Thanks for those data. I don't know about thie blue An-26 "Yellow 05", but it looks indeed in pretty goog conditions. You are probably right about this (lonely) An-12 : it should be UR-UCK (not UCA). The grey Tu-134 also looks quite in very good condition when compared with the other stored planes. ...

Kiev Borispol CIV GOV and MIL

A short stop and go at Kiev Borispol this weekend. A great airport as the Gov and military side is just in front of the airlines parking. So I tried to make a few pictures during the short taxi time. Present were : GOV : 2 Il-62 : UR-86527 and UR-86528, 3 Tu-134 : UR-65718, UR-65556 and UR-68392 (no...

Re: Wie/wat/waar vliegt daar (MIL) 2015

It isn't exactly military I think, but I just had a piston-engine (single engine) plane overhead Bilzen. By the sound and silhouette it looked to be a warbird. Anybody got any intel? The Boomerang perhaps? Could it be that Yak, currently based in Spa and often flying over North-East Belgium ? http:...

Well, Cyrano de Bergerac would answer "this is a little bit short Monsieur !". :) I could just reply "yes we do". But I prefer to say "each of us has the right to think differently". And of course, one may know Russia, Ukraine and other places around there much more then I do. Anyway, this forum is ...

Re: 04jun2015: Sukhoi Su-34 bomber overturned off runway

Thanks. Yes I noticed, but it's still shocking to see. If you like to know how this all started, I can recommend two books written by Peter 'd Hamecourt (former NOS-correspondent in Russia): 'Rusland in oorlog -met zichzelf en de wereld' part 1 and 2. I'm reading them now. He describes how the cold...
