I just received an official confirmation that from next Monday onwards, 7 F-16s of the Belgian Airforce will come over to Weelde reserve airbase for storage, namely :
  • 3x Monday, 19th April
  • 2x Tuesday, 20th April
  • 2x Wednesday, 21st April
Arrival is expected at approx. 1:30pm, but it would be possible that they will come later, depending on the weather conditions.

Serial numbers and origin bases are still unknown.

The mobile barrier has been placed today.

Best regards,
Dirk
