Renard R36 a new book of the FNAR.


We are happy to transmit the news of the publication of the book of Nicolas about the Renard R36, please find all the details on the FNAR website (direct link here).

The book is in French and English and contains many never before published pictures as well as fine drawings. The cover is by Romain Hugault. No doubt some will acquire this publication for the cover as this is really a piece of art but the book is maybe the definitive reference on the Renard fighters.

As all non profit organizations in Belgium (ASBL/VZW) May and June were busy periods to check the financial results of the previous year and submit theses documents to the legal authorities. As these documents are legal and public, to add even more transparency to our actions we publish the figures. Sorry but only a French speaking version is available here (Bamf operating accounts 2009).

Bristol Sycamore

In 2008, the Museum acquired a missing link in our aviation heritage with the Bristol Sycamore. This is the subject of a new page on our website.


Our friends of the Belgians in SAAF and RAF 1940-1945 are never sleeping. They have been contacted by the webmaster of the site dealing with the Battle of Britain Monument in London to help with the biography of the Belgian pilots. Visit the site our link section

Pegase is the newspapers of the Amis du Musée de l’Air et de l’Espace of Le Bourget. The first issue was published in 1976. This publication was and is still a reference about aviation history and air museums publications. The AAMA offers now some of the issues of Pegase as free pdf download and the list of all articles published since more than 30 years. A link is available in our link section.


From 1971 to 1994, the Mirage 5 was in use with the Belgian Air Force. The French fighter was maybe the most elegant aircraft ever used in Belgium. In 1992, the Belgian French speaking television network produced a TV show about the 42th squadron (Mephisto) flying Mirage 5BR in the reconnaissance role from Bierset air base. This interesting document was found on youtube and is a tribute to the Mirage 5 and the airmen who maintained and flow this aircraft. See our Video Section

Many happy landings.
