In search of : German aircraft delivered to Belgium after WW1

Since Many years, Daniel Brackx (www.baha.be) works on the fascinating history of the German aircraft delivered to Belgium after WW1. Some of these aircraft were captured but many others were delivered directly from the factories in reparation paid according to the Versailles treaty of 1919.

Until now, Daniel identified 400 aircraft. He is searching any information which can help to complement this unknown part of our aviation history. If you can help, please do not hesitate to contact Daniel at brackda@gmail.com.

Daniel is also looking for the serial number of the Spad XIII found many year ago at the Université du Travail in Charleroi and exchanged with the Bourget Air Museum.

Feed back & publications.

Exhibition St Ghislain & inauguration of the monument Lancaster JI-C 514 Squadron : Both events were great successes.
