Cheers for the reply, i ask there.

Two of the three do have the scheme, RS-05 still has the 25th anniversary scheme :grin: even though they have celebrated their 40th :grin:

All except the 'special' scheme. On Wednesday 4 July 2001, Sea King RS05 was revealed in a special decoration for the first time to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sea King in the Belgian Air Force. It still wears this nice colour-scheme today!
How lucky do you feel?

Wasn't sure if '05 was still extant-yes, 17 years in a special scheme, surely a record??!

There was talk on Facebook of a retirement special Sea King. Not sure how much truth

Belgian Air Force Days update: Thunder Tigers (F-16's demo BAF)

Thundertigers didn't fly in 2014 :whistle:

It's the Seaking Farewell Tour this year, they're being withdrawn from service in March 2019. The remaining ones have a small sticker.

The 4x F-16's were great last year - plenty of formation topsides/bellysides, straight passes, a break, synchro passes etc and a high speed formation vertical departure with flares popping

Contrary to the other side of the North Sea, the colour-scheme of the Belgian Sea Kings make up for the small sticker.

Anyone knows if they are allowed to use flares in the display? Saw some footage on youtube where it popped flares at CIAV I believe. Two years ago in Denmark it didn't, and of course not allowed to at RIAT

So much for regular updates :lol: However, Luftwaffe A400M added to static. Let's hope it's parked at either end and not right in the middle :grin:

Is it not the Danish C-130 which has scrubbed?

More positively the Breitling Jet Team have been added, will be the only time I get to see them this season.

No, Danish C-130 was never listed, so the Dutch one got cancelled :)
