In 1985 it was forty years ago that World War II ended and therefore a special Liberation Airshow was organized at Rotterdam-Zestienhoven Airport on May 5th . Lots of Warbirds and historic aircraft were present and this gallery shows a selection of pictures, taken by Hans.
In 1975 the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon , at the time a brand new jet aircraft design from the U.S.A. , made a European Tour to interest potential customers
This YF-16A was also part of the exhibition during the (rainy) Open Day at Florennes Air Base , Belgium on June 21st , 1975 , visited by Hans and Frank.
The 1965 (June 27th) Airshow at Brustem-St.Truiden AB, Belgium was the very first aviation-event attended by Hans (except for the Open Day at Eindhoven AB in 1963, of which he has no pictures available). The photos in this gallery are of very poor quality , taken as they were with very simple camera-equipment, but nevertheless worth while showing. They give you a sense of long ago…!
