A small event in my backyard which I never visited before. But today this changed. The sun was out and I thought "why not". Brasschaat is one of the oldest military airfields in Belgium. The last military occupants was the "Licht vliegwezen", flying Alouette helicopters. Now it's exploited by the motorvliegclub Brasschaat. Alongside the airfield the old hangars and buildings are in use by the "Gunfire" artillery museum.
And the "Koninklijk Museum van het Leger en de Krijgsgeschiedenis" has some major storage of artillerie artifacts on this site.
This event is a fly-in so you never know what to expect. I arrived around noon and the first thing I noticed was that the direction of the sun was not optimal for taking pictures. This goes for static and take-off shots; So this was bummer for me. There were some very nice airplanes in the static. I really loved the arrival of the Albatross D.III from Deurne. After a few hours I called it a day and went home. I was not disappointed at all. Made some nice shots.
A really nice and small event, ideal for a half day out and about. Taking pictures, meeting people you know.
