28&29/08 - Flying flea Fly in in Cerfontaine pictures.

On August 29 & 29th, the RSAB organized the first Flying Flea Fly in in Cerfontaines. Although by evidence the Belgian climate has something against the Flying Flea, there were some interesting aircraft in Cerfontaine and certainly a excellent spirit amongst the participants and the public. We hope this event again next year (after a negotiation with the persons in charge of the weather in this country. See more on our picture gallery

Holydays ?

During the holydays, the restorations did not stop. Bruno manufactured supports for the wheels of the KZ III in much less time that the incredible time needed to fill a study about these parts. The 2 Marc are now well busy with the fuselage of the Tipsy Belfair and Vincent is performing the last operations on the Tipsy Trainer.  Philippe & Nicolas are completing the wings of the Storch. The wings of the Renard R-31 replica were delivered. See all our activities in pictures at our picture gallery.

Links & comics

We added links to some interesting sites.

Pierre Cryns is busy to write the biography of Louis de Monge who worked on numerous aircraft including the Bugatti racer. We added a link to the Bugatti aircraf Association who collaborate with Pierre.

Another link in Comic Strips section about an album featuring the Bugatti Racer.

We got in contact with Ray from http://www.fi-156.sk/english.htm who is working to build a replica of the Fieseler Storch from orginal drawings.

Some of us are volunteers not only with the BAMRS. Eric is helping the Musée du souvenir de Haut Wastia who commemorate the combats on the Meuse in Mai 1940 including the air combats (see our links section).
