Dabert (Coll Vincent Jacobs)
La Ferté Melbroek -
Sep 6, 2008
The Voisin de Caters uses some parts from the Dabert biplane build by the Salis team for the TV serie "Les Faucheurs de Marguerites". Here are some pictures Vincent found of this aircraft in La Ferté and on the arrival in Melsbroek. Unfortunetly, due to incorrect storage during years, some parts were damaged or lost and extra efforts was needed to build new ones for the de Caters.

Brussels Air Museum -
Sep 6, 2008
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.

A B-25 back in Belgium

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 unexperienced volunteers to join the project on a benevolent basis.

If you are motivated to work on a WW2 aircraft, please contact Nicolas at nicolas.godfurnon@skynet.be

You can learn more about the project at http://www.bamfbamrs.be/B25/B25-en.htm
