On Sunday 10 July, Aeroclub Ursel seeks to link up with that illustrious past with an impressive flying display.
On Saturday 9 July, there will be an open cockpit-day where interested visitors sit in several cockpits of participating aircraft, or go on a pleasure flight over this leafy part of Belgium, for instance on an An-2. Of course, there are also alternative ways to spend (part of) that day, such as a visit to the nearby For Freedom Museum at Ramskapelle, dedicated to the liberation of the Scheldt estuary In 1944, which was supported from the air by RAF Typhoons operating from B67 Ursel.
On Friday, there will also be a spottersday limited to 200 people to see the arrival of the bulk of participating aircraft.
The main event will be on 10 July. There will be lots of ground animation, re-enactment, dance and music acts to go with the flying acts set around the following themes:
- Pioneers, tasting the magic
- Golden years of aviation
- Reaching for liberation, WWII
- Full metal wings, Vietnam
- 24/24, 7/7, Belgian air force
- Electric flying, future & drones
- The art of flying
