On May 13th , 1988 Hans and Frank paid a visit to the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces in Brussels , Belgium , which houses a large and interesting component devoted to the Air Force. To (partly) solve the lack of space problem in the great exhibition hall , some of the aircraft exposed have been “elevated” or attached to the ceiling to make them look as if they were in-flight. Hans also visited the museum in 1992 and 1997 , while Frank was there again in 1998 to take some more pictures.
