Last week, we received the radiator fabricated by Pascal and David in the workshop of the Museum.
This part was the cause of some headache as we got in trouble to find a suitable one.
This issue is now solved.

André Hiernaux Pictures
Brussels Air Museum -
Aug 3, 2008 by bamf.bamrs
André Hiernaux is a Belgian living in Switzerland. During his visits to the Museum, he take pictures of the aircraft or objects displayed. Back home, he transform theses pictures in real pieces of art. We all know the aircraft in the prestigious decor of the Aviation hall. Thanks to André, for the first time, we can discover the aircraft out of their environment. We are happy and proud, André permitted us to share his works.
In July, André visited the Museum and shoot more than 700 pictures.
The first results are the Mirage 5 and the Dragon Rapide. Enjoy !

We would like to reinforce the B-25 restoration Team.

For this purpose, the bamf is currently contracting insurance for 12 restorers. The restoration activities have already started and will soon enter greater scale operations. Although we are looking for persons with technical knowledge in aircraft restoration, we want also give the opportunity to volunteers to join the project on a benevolent basis.
