Keiheuvel Air Shows (B) , 1968 – 1972

In the late 1960 and early 1970ties the Keiheuvel airshows (Keiheuvel is a dusty grass airstrip in the north of Belgium) were notorious among the Eindhoven spotters.

The organizers often managed to contract famous aerobatic teams (Slivers), fighter aircraft (Lightning, A-10) and even heavy bombers (a Vulcan!). Also the Blue Bees -an Alouette equipped heli team of the Belgian Aemy, at that time based in Germany- were regular performers.

The pictures shown by Hans are all from the August 1971 edition. Those made by Frank were taken in earlier and later years.

Hans: The 1971 edition featured a Belgian Air Force Sikorsky S-58 making several passes “nose-down” which was quite spectacular to see happening ! The Alouette II equipped demoteam The Blue Bees also gave a show on that memorable 29th of August.
