It was a cold and windy day when I visited Koksijde AFB to attend a spotters day. This event was organized to pay tribute to Seaking RS-02 which would make its last operational flight on this day. Alongside RS-02, two other Seakings were on static display. RS-04, which would make its last flight almost a month later. And RS-05 which is scheduled to make its last flight on the 21st of March. Being the last Seaking going in retirement. Ending an era of almost 50 years Seaking SAR.
A nice event to celebrate a rather sad moment. Many types of the Belgian Air Force and Belgian Navy made an appearance to pay tribute to the Seaking.
