Belgian Air Force ondersteunt COVID19 !
On thursday, july 30th, the first 🇧🇪 @BeAirForce #A400M #Atlas has executed its maiden flight at the @AirbusDefence facility in Seville. The aircraft performed a full Production Aircraft Test Manual (PATM) flight test profile in the late afternoon. CU soon @15WAirTransport !
The @BeAirForce wishes all Belgians and the residents of 🇧🇪 a happy National Day. In the afternoon, one #NH90 helicopter with the 🇧🇪 flag and nine #F16 jets will fly over the Royal Palace. After Brussels the F-16 formations will split and fly over province capitals. @MonarchieBe
Yesterday the Multinational MRTT Unit #MMU welcomed the first #A330MRTT of the fleet at the Main Operating Base @VlbEindhoven. Also @BeAirForce crew is based at this multinational unit. The A330 will fly for the benefit of the @BelgiumDefence and the other partners. @A330_MMU
A formation of three @BeAirForce Alouette III helicopters performed a formation flight over the coast and some @TheBelgianNavy landmarks. One #AlouetteIII will retire soon, the others in the course of 2021. This was the last opportunity for these aircraft to fly together.
We are deeply saddened by the passing of LTG Sander Schnitger, former Air Chief of the @Kon_Luchtmacht, true Airman & brother in arms. On behalf of the @BeAirForce, our sincerest condolences to our 🇳🇱 brothers & sisters and to the loved ones of this most honorable Officer.
Gen Vansina of @BeAirForce and CEO Decuyper of @skeyesBE_EN got acquainted with the new supervisor suite at skeyes today. This central workspace enables a better coordination between civil and military air traffic controllers in the joint management of the 🇧🇪 airspace. #ATC
Last #COVID19 related courtesy visit for Gen Vansina to our @BeAirForce units. The Control & Reporting Centre of #Glons had to take the necessary measures to continue its 24/7 mission to guard the 🇧🇪 airspace and is moving its operations to a new building at #BeauvechainAirBase.
Gen Vansina visited the @BeAirForce Air Traffic Control Centre today. Together with partner @skeyesBE_EN, the #ATCC took exemplary #businesscontinuity measures as a reaction to the #corona crisis. Happy faces in the #ATCSchool and @EntryPointNorth Belgium. They are our future.
The @BeAirForce commander Gen Vansina paid a visit to #2WTac and #80UAV at #FlorennesAB, to check up on the corona measures taken for onsite personnel. He appreciated the efforts of both units to continue the ongoing daily business during the #COVID19 crisis. #QRA #proud
