Brussels Airport : “Flight in mind” sculpture taken to art foundry

Forwarded message - From: MEDIA Mailbox 

"Flight in mind" sculpture taken to art foundry

The sculpture "Flight in mind" by artist Olivier Strebelle has been moved from Brussels Airport to the Belgian art foundry Art Casting in Oudenaarde. The sculpture was damaged during the attacks at the airport on 22 March and will, in the months ahead, be restored in the foundry with the intention of giving it a new location at the airport. The sculpture will be given a place outside the terminal, but it is not yet known precisely where this will be.

Video : Jetmen join French Air Force aerobatic team for insane formation flight

Thank you Louis

Forwarded message - From: louisneve

Hard to believe , fantastic jetmen and superb video's !


From: Jean schoefs

Subject: Jetmen join French Air Force aerobatic team for insane formation flight

Three jetmen have taken to the skies of southern France to join the "Patrouille de France" aerobatic demonstration team for a "world's first" formation flight. The breathtaking aerial performance was captured on film by Airborne Films and can be seen in the video below.
The Jetman Dubai team's Yves Rossy and Vincent Reffet already have an impressive formation flight feather in their cap, after flying alongside an Emirates Airbus A380 passenger jet in October 2015. Now they've been joined by fellow jet-propelled wing flyer, and local boy, Fred Fugen for a nine minute precision dance in the skies above Saint-Christol in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of France for the first flight with the iconic Alphajet team.


THE THREE JETMEN YVES ROSSY, VINCENT REFFET AND FRED FUGEN FLEW TOGETHER WITH THE PATROUILLE DE FRANCE IN AN UNPRECEDENTED AERIAL CHOREOGRAPHY.

In October 2016, the three jetpack-equipped pilots formed up with the 8 Alpha Jets of the Patrouille de France, the French Air Force aerobatic display team and flew together at an altitude of 4,000 ft (1,200 m) and a speed of 140 knots (260 km/h).

Although it may seem an easy or random task, such formation flying requires much preparation in order to reduce turbulence and consequent instability.
Here below you can watch the rather unusual men-aircraft formation.



In 2011, Jetman Yves Rossy flew in formation with the Breitling Jet Team over the Grand Canyon.

The Jetmen used only body movements to maintain their position just feet away from the eight Dessault Alpha jets

 

Each jet-powered wing has four Jet-Cat P400 engines fueled by a mix of kerosene and 5 percent turbine oil. It has a wingspan of 2 meters, and a dry weight of 40 kg.

"What a fantastic experience for us, as pilots, to be able to fly in formation with these men," said Squadron Leader Christophe Dubois after the performance

The three Jetmen suited up and ready for lift off
