Here’s the official promo for the event. If you look closely, you’ll see one participant that hasn’t been announced yet ;-)

I could see a Cub, T-6 and a Gazelle in there (and a few GA type's but not my thing!).

Preliminary programme online (without specifying all flypasses), gives a rough idea of some main programme points.
Sorry it's in Dutch: http://urselavia.be/program.html

Other aircraft not listed for passes include ERJ135, Magni M-24 Gyrocopter, Gazelles, Pitts 4-ship, Mustang, Storch, An-2 (Polish AF colours), Extra 330, T-28.

Proceeds for the event go to the emergency ambulance helicopter for the larger region and in aid of a pilot who conducted anti-poaching flights over Virunga Park and who recently crashed during a flight there. The pilot Anthony Caere originally comes from aeroclub Ursel. He is looking to purchase a new aircraft with the aim of continuing his mission over Virunga park in Congo to rescue wounded animals and park rangers. He became something of a celebrity in Belgium thanks to 2 seasons of a reality series following his work in Congo.

Will do. I'll be the weirdo with videocamera that has a Blue Foam mic cover.
Sadly, the Travelair is dealing with technical issues so won't be able to join us :(

Happy you enjoyed it. Weather on Saturday caused some issues, as did tehnical issues with some planned aircraft. I personally was happy the Dutch sent over a Harvard as replacement for the Spitfire to do a few flybys. Now hopefully all of the planned onboard footage will have worked out :)

Great afternoon. Arrived just around lunchtime and had lunch on the grass watching the flying. Walk round the static then an enjoyable brief hop in the helicopter doing pleasure flights - went up with my two kids (wifer decided to keep her feet on the ground!). Youngest volunteered to sit in the front and my eldest clung on to me in the back!

Nice to see a Sea King demo again now that we've got rid of ours. Red Devils plus the Magister looked great.

Did the Boomerang make it? Never saw it on the ground but in Brugges that evening walking home after dinner I'm convinved I saw it fly over.

Not managed to make it through my photo's from the day but will put a thread on here when I do.

Sadly no, the Boomerang never made it :(

There is a video of highlights I did if anyone is interested.
