Here’s an impression of the 2012 Warbirds Fly-In/Photoflying Days at Zoersel/Malle Airfield in Belgium. The photos were taken on August 17.
This airfield in Belgium certainly is an eldorado for Warbirds-fans and 1996 was a year in which a great air show was organized there , not in the least because some former air force jets took part ! Especially interesting to watch were examples of the F-86 Sabre and the MIG 15 , once real opponents during the Korean War. Hans and Frank enjoyed their performance very much.
Hans and Frank went to Belgium in September 1993 to attend the traditional Warbirds Air Show that took place at Oostmalle Airfield.
Superb formation-flying was shown to the public by the Russian Air Force’s MIG 29 equipped demoteam STRIZHY during the (warbirds) Air Show at Zoersel, Belgium on September 4th , 1993 ! Hans and Frank enjoyed watching their display and – of course- took some pictures.
Zoersel/Oostmalle is a disused NATO airbase in Belgium (near Antwerp). It houses a small but very enthusiastic aero club and this club (called APCK) has a great track record when it comes to organizing warbird airshows. Although there were no fast jets participating this year it was a fantastic event; Frank was among the visitors and his pictorial report starts here.
