Douglas C-47 Dakota 1/6
The Douglas C-47 Skytrain or Dakota is a military transport aircraft that was developed from the Douglas DC-3 airliner. It was used extensively by the Allies during World War II and remained in front line operations through the 1950s with a few remaining in operation to this day.

Auguste Piccard, from Swiss origin, detained height world records in ballooning during the years 1930's. His experiments were financed by Belgium. The gondola is now at the Royal Army Museum, aeronautical section in Brussels.

These photos date back to before WWI and continue through the Nazi Occupation, and covers the allied occupation, post war use by the Belgians and into modern day use with pictures of air shows and use by NATO.

La Force Aerienne Belge : A very interesting video about the history, the missions and the experience of a fighter pilot with the Belgian Airforce with interview of General Michel Audrit and F-16 demonstrator "Mickey" Artiges.

The Dassault Mirage 5 is a supersonic attack aircraft designed in France by Dassault Aviation during the 1960s, and manufactured both in France and a number of other countries. It was derived from Dassault's extremely successful Mirage III fighter, and spawned several variants of its own.

The Mirage 5 was one of the most beautiful aircraft ever used by the Belgian Air Force. This short video is about the Mirage 5BR, the recce version from the 42 Squadron "Mephisto". With a lot of humour the pilots of this squadron specialised in low level fast reconnaissance qualified themselves as "fighter pilots with a brain"

These guys maded a record, that they could build up a Wellington bomber in 30 hours in World War 2






On Friday 20th of August Mikael Carlson flew with the newly re-built original Blériot XI, owned by the Technical Museum in Stockholm. This individual was originally built in 1918. Mikael restored the Blériot XI to flying condition, and on this Friday, the 20th of August, it finally flew at the celebtration of centennary of the first flight in Sweden.
The event, which took place at the "Gärdet" in Stockholm, was organised by the Technical Museum.

The Mitchell Bomber Turned The Tide Of A World War

Of all the stories that permeate the rich heritage of the aviation world, few are as compelling and as dramatic as that of 16 B-25 bombers who launched off a pitching carrier deck to bomb Japan on April 18th, 1942. They called it the "Doolittle Raid" and it came to be the first, pivotal, air raid to strike the Japanese on their home turf during World War II.

It was a huge symbolic victory for the American war effort, proving that Japan could be vulnerable to Allied air attack. It also provided a fitting response to the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941. The raid was the brainchild of LTC James "Jimmy" Doolittle, who chose the mighty B-25 to launch off the Carrier Hornet, barely half a year after Pearl.

Two and a half weeks before the attack, 16 B-25s, modified to fit their unique mission requirements, their five-man crews and support personnel were loaded aboard the... plus

Designed in 1935, the Fieseler Storch was a high-winged light monoplane which served with the Luftwaffe in all Theatres.
Originally a general reconnaissance and courier aircraft, it was later used in artillery spotting and ambulance roles.
Armed with one machine gun and powered by a 240hp engine, the Storch had a top speed of 110 mph.
The short take-off and landing capabilities of the Storch were so far in advance of its rivals that 40 captured aircraft were assigned as transport to Allied commanders.




From 1971 to 1994, the Mirage 5 was in use with the Belgian Air Force. The French fighter was maybe the most elegant aircraft ever used in Belgium. In 1992, the Belgian French speaking television network produced a TV show about the 42th squadron flying Mirage 5BR in the reconnaissance role from Bierset air base.

This interesting document was found on youtube and is a tribute to the Mirage 5 and the airmen who maintained and flow this aircraft.

 

 

 
 
 
  

 

 

 
 
 
 
 

  

SABENA - Helicopter Airlift 

 
 

 
The Piasecki H-21 Workhorse/Shawnee is an American helicopter, the fourth of a line of tandem rotor helicopters designed and built by Piasecki Helicopter (later Boeing Vertol). Commonly called the "flying banana", it was a multi-mission helicopter, utilizing wheels, skis, or floats.

The H-21 was originally developed by Piasecki as an Arctic rescue helicopter. The H-21 had winterization features permitting operation at temperatures as low as -65 degrees F, and could be routinely maintained in severe cold weather environments.

The Fieseler Fi 156 Storch (stork) was a small German liaison aircraft built by Fieseler before and during World War II, and production continued in other countries into the 1950s for the private market. It remains famous to this day for its excellent STOL (short take-off and landing) performance, and French-built later variants are a common fixture at air shows.

The Douglas A-26 Invader (B-26 between 19481965) was a United States twin-engined light attack bomber built by the Douglas Aircraft Co. during World War II that also saw service during several of the Cold War's major conflicts. A limited number of highly modified aircraft served in combat until 1969. The last A-26 in active US service was assigned to the Air National Guard; that aircraft was retired from military service in 1972 by the US Air Force and the National Guard Bureau and donated to the National Air and Space Museum

The Westland Lysander was a British army co-operation and liaison aircraft used in the Second World War. It achieved fame through its ability to operate from short stretches of unprepared airstrip and its clandestine missions to plant or retrieve agents from behind enemy lines, particularly in Nazi-occupied France. Like other British army air co-operation aeroplanes, it was given the name of a military leader, in this case, the Spartan Lysander. In 1934, the Air Ministry issued the Specification A.39/34 for an army co-operation aircraft to replace the Hawker Hector. Initially, Hawker Aircraft, Avro and Bristol were invited to submit designs, but after some debate within the Ministry, a submission from Westland was invited as well. The Westland design, internally designated P.8, was the work of Arthur Davenport under the direction of "Teddy" Petter. It was Petter's second aircraft design and he spent considerable time interviewing RAF pilots to find out what they wanted fro... more


Russian born engineer Nicolas Florine built one of the first successful tandem rotor helicopters. The rotors turned in the same direction but were tilted in opposite directions to cancel torque reaction. Boulet (1984) describes the various mechanical aspects of the machine. Florine's first aircraft was destroyed in 1930, but he had a second design flying successfully by 1933, which made a flight of over 9 minutes to an altitude of 15-feet. This exceeded d'Ascanio's modest flight duration record of the time. Yet, Florine's designs suffered many setbacks, and work was discontinued into the pre-World War 2 years. His machines were ultimately destroyed during the war. © 2009 YouTube
