Interesting Aviation Weekend In Belgium

Sat Jun 24, 2006 11:32 pm

Dear All,

If you ever have been planning to spend a weekend in Belgium (as an aviation enthusiast), you should have a look at this:

http://www.baha.be/photo_call_2006_kleine_brogel.htm

July 21st is Belgium's national holiday, on which day there is always a parade in Brussels where also the Belgian Air Component is taking part. On this occasion, Kleine Brogel AFB is organizing a photo-call where many of these parade-participants will perform also a fly-by and also most of the participants of the Sanicole 30-anniversary Airshow (near KB AFB) will be present (for more detailed info, see the provided link).

Enjoy!

Best regards,

Walter

Thanks for the info, I have BRU layovers in July.
Does anyone have any idea if Kleine Brogel AFB is reachable by public transport from downtown?
Thanks,
Highguy76

Hello Highguy76,

Kleine Brogel AFB is about 100km from Brussels Airport. The easiest is of course by car, but by train you could get to Leopoldsburg (that the town where the Sanicole Airshow is during the weekend) and that 's about 15km from Kleine Brogel AFB.

If you want more detailed info, please send me a mail and than I will do a deeper investigation.

Best regards,

Walter

Walter,

Looks interesting. I may be able to go. Probably will be less crowded than the airshow ...

Sure! And Kleine Brogel has a very good reputation, they really know how to organize a photo-shoot (Last year, I was able to shoot most of the static shots with my 100-400 - at minimum zoom of course - but it shows they can set the aircraft in a splendid way)!

Here 's an example which has just been added to the database:

PS: sorry for the plug, but since I have not yet achieved "No.50", I am not yet in the list of photographers...

Many greetings,

Walter

Walter,
Thanks again. I don't think I need any more info, I can figure it out from Leopoldsburg. I might just rent a car and drive from BRU. Possibly I can talk my pilots and other FAs into coming along and chipping in on the rental.
