200.000 flight hours for the Belgian C-130H Hercules fleet



On September 12, 2008, a little commemoration was held at Melsbroek airbase before the international open door.

The C-130H fleet recalls the prestigious amount of 200.000 flight hours. The specialy decorated aircraft CH07 made a training flight and back at Melsbroek the crew received the commemorative plate given by Mister Michael A. OGG, European regional director of Lockheed Martin Aero, .
