Deurne 15/05 - 16/05
Mid May is usually our airshow season opener in the form of the Stampe Fly-in at the Antwerp airport. This year was their 20th anniversary edition which also hosted a mini Ercoupe Fly-in on the side. Weather was excellent once more and it was a great get together with some good friends.
La Ferté Alais 22/05 - 23/05
The annual "Meeting Aerien" at the Aérodrome de Cerny-La Ferté Alais is one of the most romantic airshows of historic aircraft in Europe. Against a beautiful backdrop, the show organisers manage to surprise everyone each year with some special appearances and formations. This year was no different as there was plenty to see: from the pioneers of aviation in the form of rare aircraft such as the Blériot XI-2 to the 100 ans d'aéronavale celebration which saw a rare formation of a Grumman Avenger and a Dassault Rafale.
Gilze Rijen 18/06 - 19/06
2010's edition of the Luchtmachtdagen (Royal Netherlands Air Force Open Days) took place during the weekend of July 18th and 19th. This year's theme was "deployable worldwide" and hosted some of the greatest European display teams and solo displays, such as the Red Arrows, the Turkish Stars, the Spanish EF-18 Hornet, Belgian and Dutch F-16 and the RNAF AH-64D Apache solo display. The Apache solo display last flew in 2005, but was re-activated for the 2010 airshow season, much to the delight of many airshow enthousiasts.
