  • Volkel 2007
    chasing Strong points of this years event were the Turkish Star a magnificent and unique DC 2 the Swedish Hunters and a splendid twoseat in the colours of the KLU This event saw also the very last exhibition abroad of the Belgian Air Component Fouga Magister The static display s rarity was most certainly the Polish Sukhoi SU22 As every year one of the key moments of the event is the demonstration of the operational capabilities of the KLU with an airfield attack involving F 16 AH 64 Apache intervention of front line troops by Super Puma or CH 47 Chinook mass arrival with C 130 and air air refueling by a KC 10 On Friday things were getting started but had to be cancelled from the first wave off as F 16AM J 018 suffered an engine birdstrike at take off The pilot gained height flew his aircraft away from the airfield to drop his tanks and came back to land on the runway escorted by a second F 16AM All of this was to be followed on a giant screen and comments through the public adress system This was for real and all of us could witness the

  • La Ferté Alais 2007
    Between two wars with Bücker Klemm and Focke Wulfs Training and liaison aircraft from the RAF like the Tiger Moth or Chipmunck Rescue at Ho Chi Minh which without contradiction was the highlight of the morning show and predicted very nice demonstrations for the afternoon Indeed the scenario included special effects explosions smoke and some prestigious planes used during the south east asian conflict To rescue a downed pilot Skyraiders and T 28 Trojan Fennec were called upon to secure the zone all under the watchful eye of a Cessna Bird Dog Once the zone secured a Bell Huey ran in to extract the pilot Twenty minutes of real suspense After the midday break the afternoon show started with the commemoration of 100 years of helicopter flight but it also began to rain which would change quite a lot in the programming Some beautiful aircraft from the second world war like the Curtiss H75 Yak 3 Fi156 DC3 B17 Ju52 3M and P51D were presented after a dog fight involving some biplanes simulating an air battle of the first war Due to the intensity of the rainshowers and the degrading visibility the organisers had to cancel further flights Safety first This was a pity for the thousands of visitors which like us were soaking wet But La Ferté Alais is always a magical place to be and we can only hope that future shows will still attract this variety of fantastic airplanes suffused with a beautiful sunshine Our thanks go to the Editions Larivière organisers of this event grating us our accredition and for their help and obligingness Caudron III The image of La Ferté Alais and Amicale Salis is certainly the Bleriot XI Bleriot XI painted as the one of the well known pilot Pegoud The most popular fighter

  • T L P 2007
    Tactical Leadership Program The Allied Air Forces Central Europe AAFCE Tactical Leadership Programme TLP was born out of a desire by the Central Region Air Forces to not only improve the tactical capabilities of their own air forces but also to develop tactics techniques and procedures which would enhance multi national tactical air operations With this aim in mind in January 1978 the signatory nations namely Belgium Canada Germany The Netherlands UK and the USA formed the AAFCE TLP at the German Air Force base of Fürstenfeldbruck Early TLP courses took the form of a two week seminar where aircrew from the signatory nations briefed discussed and formulated NATO tactics techniques and procedures In September 1979 the TLP moved to Jever AB in Northern Germany where a flying phase was added to the course extending it to four weeks The TLP remained at Jever until December 1988 by which time some 71 flying courses had been completed and nearly 2000 NATO aircrew had graduated In March 1989 the TLP moved to the Belgian Air Force Base at Florennes where two further branches Academic and Concepts Doctrine were added At this stage a French Liaison Officer joined the staff and France now participates in most Flying Courses While originally a Central Region organisation the TLP has now expanded to include a number of nations from outside the Region Denmark and Italy officially became Memorandum of Understanding MOU Signatory Nations in January 1996 and Spain joined the Programme in 2002 Canada withdrew from the Programme in 1997 following the withdrawal of its forces from Germany but maintains a Liaison Officer on the TLP staff and participates regularly in Flying and Academic Courses In January 2002 TLP became a Unit in Support of SHAPE and SHAPE became a Party of the MOU TLP
