Arrival first BE/LUX A400M

On Friday 09 Oct 20, the first of 8 A400Ms arrived at the 15th Air Transport Wing, Melsbroek AB in Belgium. The aircraft will be operated by a bi-national BE/LUX unit and was welcomed with the traditional water salute. Finally a nice occasion to take some pictures again :smiley: : https://photos.smu...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

5 years ago, on this day, I had the opportunity to fly with a French tanker for EART 15 and I enjoyed every part of it . https://photos.smugmug.com/OperationsandExercises/EART-15-Air2Air-C135/i-23Mnj74/1/3a1b825e/O/DSC_1692.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/OperationsandExercises/EART-15-Air2Air-C135/i...

My ‘Classic’ 2019

2019 comes to an end and now is the ideal moment to look back at a fantastic aviation year. The absolute highlight was the commemoration of 75yrs D-Day and this theme, or the liberation of Europe in general, came back during most of the airshows and events. Let’s start with Normandy in June and the ...

A first time visit for me (on Saturday), but certainly not the last time !

D-Day mass drop at La Fière, Normandy

The first week of June, I spent some time in Normandy during the commemoration of D-Day. One of the highlights was the mass drop at DZ La Fière on Sunday, including several Daks, a lot of C-130s and around 1400 paratroopers from different nations.
