Chièvres Open Day (Belgium), June 20th, 1987

During the fifties and sixties Chièvres Air Base in the south of Belgium was in active use by the Belgian Air Force , but later on it gradually became an air-transport facility for V.I.P’s who are visiting SHAPE (the NATO-HQ in Brussels). Sometimes Open Days & Air Shows took place at this location , such as the one on June 20th ,1987 , which was attended by Hans. The presence of two USAF B-52’s (one at the Static Show and one demo-aircraft in the air) was without any doubt impressive !
