2017 Best of

I hate the end of year. This is the moment you need to look back and sometime you discover good or bad results.

We are ending the year with 30.000 visitors in December. It was a very busy year with very wet moments under the rain but also great time with friends, marvelous readings and great hopes for 2018.

Many thanks to all our readers, the friends sharing their marvellous contents and sending us links.

Some of you asked me if they need to pay something. No this is free but you can help the C119 project, you will make a lot of people happy including the public and maybe ... alight vocations in the young generations  

Best of my pictures in 2017, a totally subjective choice. Thank you to the friends meet during these events, to the organizers, the pilots, the ground crews, the volunteers.

Without them, nothing is possible.

Waiting to meet you again in 2018 looking at the sky.

One of my secret dreams is to have a Piper L4 and a Stinson L5 in Belgium.
I was dreaming, they dit it.


vff.aero
Vintage Flight Foundation or VFF was founded in 2014 with the goal to preserve former military aircraft. The VFF has a dedicated unit specialising in WW2 liaison aircraft "The 125th Liaison Squadron" and is named after the original squadron attached to the 9th U.S. Air Force during World War 2 in the European Theater of Operations (ETO).
Our foundation and dedicated squadron will initially consist of two liaison warbirds. Our first addition is a 1944 USAAF WW2 Piper Cub L-4J Grasshopper. Our second addition is a 1942 USAAF Stinson L-5A Sentinel. Both aircraft were used as Artillery Spotter / Liaison aircraft during World War 2. It is our goal to present these aircraft to the general public in order to highlight the importance of these rather unpopular aircraft that were actually on top and in the middle of the action at the front.

Additionally we do research, gather aviation pictures, documents, aviation artefacts and share valuable historical information on liaison aircraft. Last but not least we ferry Piper and Stinson aircraft across Europe and have experience with transporting dismantled aircraft across the world. So if you need assistance, we can help you with our expertise.

There is a lot going on behind the scenes to make everything work. This webpage will be updated as we progress.

Blue Skies! 
The VFF Team

Brussels Airport welcomes 24-millionth passenger and breaks record

Forwarded message - From: MEDIA Mailbox <


Brussels Airport welcomes 24-millionth passenger and breaks record

Brussels Airport today hit the 24 million passenger mark since 1 January 2017. Never before have so many people flown to and from Brussels Airport within a single year. The 24-millionth passenger received a warm welcome this morning from Brussels Airport CEO Arnaud Feist.



Brussels Airport is in a festive mood: just before Christmas the airport has welcomed its 24-millionth passenger in 2017, an all-time record for the airport. . With 24 million passengers before the year's end, Brussels Airport is doing even better than in the previous record year 2015 when almost 23.5 million passengers travelled through Brussels Airport.

To celebrate the new record, Brussels Airport Company's CEO Arnaud Feist treated today's passengers to delicious chocolates. This record is also the perfect occasion to thank the 20,000 airport staff whose daily commitment is paramount in achieving this record and ranking Brussels Airport among Europe's top airports.

Moreover, Brussels Airport made every effort to create a suitably festive atmosphere throughout the airport. Other than the traditional Christmas trees, lights and other Christmas decorations, the gigantic bauble in the outdoor area in front of the departure hall is a real eye-catcher. This bauble, with a diameter of 6 metres, is actually a big globe which refers to the many destinations passengers can travel to from Brussels Airport. Before entering the departure hall, passengers can stop for a typical Belgian beers at the Christmas Chalet on the temporary Winter Terrace. In the baggage reclaim hall, arriving passengers can make their wait for their luggage more pleasant by playing their favourite Christmas carols through the loudspeakers of a jukebox. Passengers can also listen to Christmas piano concerts in the Connector building, which are sometimes accompanied by a choir.

Over the Christmas period at Brussels Airport, special attention will be paid to families travelling for the holidays. In order to make their departure during the Christmas holidays as smooth as possible, dedicated Family lanes will be opened at security for families with children. The airport robot BRUce Pepper is also ready to help out over the Christmas period by guiding and assisting passengers. The little robot is in full Christmas mode and after a selfie, he will wish you Happy Holidays.
