Koksijde Air Base is situated near the Belgian coast and the Westland Sea King helicopter equipped the resident 40th Rescue Squadron , BAF , for a long time. The popular and commonly known Belgian TV/series Windkracht 10 was recorded here …
Each year in August the Aviodrome Museum at Lelystad AP (NL) organizes a fly-in for Warbird and Oldtimer aircraft.
Eindhoven was the city where the authors both grew up and became “real” aircraft-spotters at the nearby air base. They made many pictures there throughout the years often under difficult circumstances ! This gallery contains a selection of these “blood, sweat and tears”-pics taken at Eindhoven (NL). The Eindhoven based Thunderstreaks are not in this gallery, but all in one seperate album. Note that in the 60/70ties Eindhoven AB also had a Base-Flight with Lockheed T-33’s,Harvards etc. You will find some pictures of these aircraft in this gallery.
A few images taken in more recent years are incorporated as well. Eindhoven now houses the transport fleet of the RNethAF (pics are in gallery named “KLu aircraft”).
