Belgian Air Force Aircraft / Helicopters information

Post by Gary » Mon Oct 05, 2015 11:31 am

Have a bit of a sort spot for the BAF, so being monitoring them on the tracking sites. Below is a list of the BAF assets showing , I believe I have mentioned all of the active assets

These are taken purely from the tracking sites so should be taken with a pinch of salt etc.. Dates are the last time I personally saw them on the tracking sites

Apologies Boob , I meant it hasn't been logged at all rather than just by me. Unless it's not using 44F6A3 as expected? Hopefully will find out soon. The Belgian Air Force Twitter account said on 26th Jan
Belgian Air Force ‏@BeAirForce Jan 26

Good news for our 40 Sqn, RN04 is coming home soon!

Lists updated for anyone interested, I don't get as much time in front of the tracking app at the moment, so will have missed some / a lot. :(

E:
LAST STANDBY OF THE BELGIAN SEA KING

After 43 years of service within the Belgian Air Force, the very last standby mission of a Sea King resulted in an emergency intervention in the Westerschelde area.

What was planned to be a common training flight during the last standby for the RS05 turned into a real SAR operation above the Westerschelde, The Netherlands. Unfortunenatly without a positive result.

As from now, The NH90 helicopters at Koksijde Air Base will watch over your safety 24/7.

Your Safety, Our Mission.

Gary, the media invite, which was initially recalled, states it will arrive on the "9th" at 10.45 local. Following a flyover, it will land and then undergo the customary fire engine water arch.
