  • NVG Missions
    the Belgian Air Force Days on June 25th and 26th at the Ardens airbase of Florennes This will also be the occasion to officially present a new publication dedicated to the Air Force integrating two chapters an historical part from 1946 on and a contemporary one emphasizing the various aspects of the Air Force in 2016 As every year the Air Force will ensure the material and technical support of the participants of the Sanicole Airshow to be held on September 09th Dusk Show and September 11th 2016 Having the press at hand was also the occasion to offer a special feature Thanks to the commitment of Adj Chef Jo Vanden Broeck we had the opportunity to witness the departure of two C 130H on a nocturnal mission with the purpose of training the crews on the NVG Night Vision Goggles Training remains undeniably the key to succes and particularly when flying this kind of delicate operations In short a nice treat to be able to immortalise Spooky by night nickname given to the valorous Hercules by some members of the Air Force In our report we also present you some nocturnal pictures taken at the 15th Wing during another stay at the base Indeed the flight crews but also the technical and handling crews are working 24 7 ensuring the sustainablility of the missions entrusted to the aerial transport Wing as within all the other units of the Air Force Through these images we would like to thank all personnel of the Air Force working day and night for our safety and peacekeeping which is quite a demanding job these days We would also like to thank Comopsair IPR and the airbase authorities at Melsbroek for this kind invitation and the photographic opportunities Do not hesitate to attend one

    therefore remain on standby at a rate of 1 3 2 3 for the NH 90 Souvenir of RNAS Culdrose 1976 thanks to Dany Payeur From left to right H De Rechter navigator R Raes pilot M Gijssels pilot E Delandtsheer pilot D Payeur pilot W Vereecke mec and P Van Den Meerssche mec A formidable rotorcraft As highlighted by Maj Vandenbroucke in his briefing the Seaking provided 40 years of reliability and unmatched security No serious accidents have been reported during its service with the 40th squadron While it is needless to mention that such a long career has brought its share of incidents it is worth noticing that these have had no major consequences The two most impressive misfortunes were unquestionably the blackout of both engines on RS03 on 3 December 1980 resulting in a forced landing in Mont Saint Guibert Thanks to the pilots skills and cold blood the damage was limited to just a few crumpled sheets of metal and the aircraft would ultimately return to Koksijde as a sling load under a Boeing CH 47 Chinook RS01 suffered the next mishap when on 28 April 1981 it proved the usefulness of the inflatable buoyancy bags required in the specifications RS01 was subsequently towed by the Belgian Navy minesweeper M907 Artevelde to Zeebrugge Although it was delicate the operation was smoothly conducted and the helicopter was later removed from the water by a crane in the harbour RNAS Culdrose the Belgian crews on training Coll Serge Van Heertum SBAP Mont Saint Guibert December 3rd 1980 Coll Serge Van Heertum SBAP Coll Serge Van Heertum SBAP Coll Serge Van Heertum SBAP RS01 in the North Sea on April 28th 1981 Belgian Navy Mission in the North Sea Belgian Air Force Career highlights For 40 years the Seaking has provided invaluable services and has been involved in some 3185 scrambles saving 1712 lives Is there much to comment about these results in a small country like Belgium but to thank those guardian angels who work in the shadows I refer here to the pilots navigators SARSOs medics and all technicians We owe these men and women a debt of gratitude for their achievements and yet all of them have in common a sense of commitment and discretion They were and are involved in the most distressing emergency situations and certainly are forever marked by events such as the capsizing of the Herald of Free Enterprise just outside the port of Zeebrugge 06 03 1987 the Switel Hotel fire in Antwerp 31 12 1994 the fire of Volendam in Holland 01 01 2001 the Ghislenghien disaster following a massive gas explosion 30 07 2004 or the sinking of the Baltic Ace following a collision on the high seas 05 12 2005 These are just a few examples Yet the squadron sometimes receives letters from either a survivor or a family member in recognition of their deep gratitude which is probably the best way to thank our brave guardian angels
