Something different.


Hello World,


A few words about other restoration projects. Many of our visitors come in Brussels to see the WW1 aircraft. We have the luck to house some unique survivors of the first conflict.  


In March 2007, the Museum tasked a team of Museum staff and AELR volunteers to restore the Halberstadt  C.V 3471/18 W/N:1368.


The team headed by David is now completing the restoration of the 4th wings of the aircraft. The metal fittings were found to be well preserved with very few traces of corrosion. The restoration of these wings permitted a study of the fabrics covering the wings. We hope to publish more pictures of this project in the future.


Another gem under restoration is the LVG C VI. The aircraft is under the cares of an AELR volunteers group. A first team started the restoration many years ago but today another team is working on the engine, the fuselage and the wings. This Saturday, one of the wings was uncovered to assess the damages of times.


Mike Lewis who works on both projects published informations about these restorations on his website.

Another interesting project (not at the Museum) is the construction of a Morane Saulnier Parasol at a Flemish school. Have a look in the website updates.


This week, Luc received a pilot’s flight suit thanks to the contacts he established with the French Armée de l’Air. The items were given to the Museum and we hope theses equipments will be soon on show.

Our Sea King is still in the process to be prepared for display. There are a lot of very interesting videos on the net availlable about the Sea King. Have a look at the Videos.


The Belgians in RAF & SAAF 1940-1945 site is updated with the biography of Léon Branders thanks to Philippe.

Received from Louis the address of the French Armée de l'air Orange air base.


André Hiernaux processed 2 pictures of the Tipsies to gives us an idea of the future future look of the Tipsies after restoration.

The restoration of the last wing (top right) is nearing completion.

In March 2007, the Museum gave mission to a team composed of Museum staff, AELR members and staff to restore the last extent Halberstadt CV (C3471/18 Werk Nr.1541). It was the first time the Museum officially started a project with a dedicated team and budget for an aircraft restoration at the Museum. Some of the restorers have already worked on the Nieuport 23. In December 2007, the first wing is on display after restoration of the wood and metal parts. You can learn more about this proje...

De Caters exhibition at the Museum

15.10.2008 - 28.02.2009

In the magical setting of the Royal Museum of the Army, the exhibition shows how many authors have drawn inspiration from history and military techniques.  In visiting the exhibition, the public will go through all the collections of the Museum.  Visitors will discover original and amusing showcases of items of the collections and how they are reflected in the comic strips.  The two dimensions of the comic strip are thus juxtaposed to the real world.
