Koksijde: runwayrun

Postby sgkoksijde on Tue 01 Sep 2015, 12:57 pm

After the Opendoor it was time for the fourth Runway Run which started at 19h00. As the run is becoming more and more popular, the participant's numbers are growing each year. This year more than 800 people participated in this run for charity where the runway of the airbase is central. To make the trail more attractive, a C-130, an A.109 and an Alouette III was put on the runway. One of the three remaining Sea Kings could be found along the trail as well. The start of the run had to be delayed with 10 minutes as a heavy rain storm passed over the airbase, but after that a NH-90 winched down the base CO to give the signal to start the run. Luckily the sun appeared again and some very special pictures could be taken due to the reflections of the standing water on the surface. The winners of the run had been very lucky as they got a ride in a Sea King at the end of the day.
