Luchtmachtbasis Kleine Brogel
TEL : 011/51.22.09 - FAX : 011/51.26.00


Op 13 september 1986 ondertekenden de Stad Peer en de toenmalige 10de Jagerbommenwerperswing (10 JBW) het peterschapsverdrag. Vandaag, 25 jaar later, resulteert de samenwerking tussen peter Stad Peer en petekind 10 W Tac in een nauwe samenwerking met wederzijds begrip en gezamenlijke activiteiten waaronder de jaarlijkse MS-actie.

We willen dit zilveren jubileum niet ongemerkt laten voorbij gaan en vieren dit op vrijdag 30 september met een parade (16u00) en groot Promsconcert (20u30) op de Vliegbasis met de Koninklijke Harmonie van Peer en de Koninklijke Muziekkapel van de Luchtmacht, twee toporkesten en twee belangrijke ambassadeurs van peter en petekind.

De twee orkesten krijgen op het podium gezelschap van Nicole & Hugo, Barbara Dex en Perenaar Salim Seghers.

Tijdens het concert zal ook een cheque van 40.000 euro overhandigd worden door de verschillende organisatoren van de MS-acties aan een afgevaardigde van de Vlaamse MS-Liga.

TV Show : Arte 05/10/2011 21:30 : Les espions qui venaient du ciel

Please take care, sometime Arte changes the programs at the last minutes.

For the fun :  For spying the activities in DDR, the USAF used some very sophisticated aircraft. The RAF, in her pure tradition, used some pragmatic solutions. DH Chipmunks used to keep flying "office pilots" were modified to take pictures (successfully) when flying between the Berlin corridor between the town the bases in western Germany.

As soon as the WW2 ended, some US units flying Piper Cubs were immediately reconverted to drop & pick up secret agents in the soviet zone of occupation in eastern Europe. A very dangerous job and an history still to be written.

De la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale à la chute du Mur de Berlin, l'espace aérien de la RDA fut le cadre d'une âpre lutte entre Américains et Soviétiques.

"Berlin vaut le voyage !", déclarait un slogan touristique du temps de la guerre froide. Difficile d'en douter, au vu des 25 000 vols d'espionnage photographique réalisés par les forces militaires américaines et britanniques sur le territoire de la RDA, à partir des couloirs aériens de ravitaillement vers Berlin-Ouest !

20:20 - Vendredi 07 Octobre C'est du Belge Beautés rares (2/3)

C'est du Belge s'arrête cette semaine au Musée de l'Armée, à l'occasion du centenaire de l'institution, en épinglant quelques pièces rares - notamment dans la salle historique du musée - ou inaccessibles au public, comme la réserve des Armes et Armures, et les Archives de Moscou récupérées par la Belgique en 2002. Pour lever le voile sur ces curiosités méconnues ou oubliées, le reportage a suivi l'un des employés du musée, Didier, premier caporal-chef et technicien depuis une bonne quinzaine d'années au musée de l'armée; il en connaît tous les recoins !
