A night at museum !

Despite the snow and the cold temperatures, a large public came to visit the Army Museum of Brussels at night.  The Air and Space section also took part in this festival underlining the  100th anniversary of this prestigious Museum in Brussels. Many activities were offered to the visitors. A mini bagpipes concert, hosts in different  component uniforms from different periods, tanks demonstrations and many booths from Belgian Air Component squadrons, F-16 flight simulator from the Air Component public relation departement, the Belgian industry with SABCA, Sabena Technics and your servants from SBAP ...
This was an opportunity for everyone to make contacts, see old acquaintances from aviation world and take
a seat in a F-16.
The
hot onion soup and other glüwein helped  surviving the winter temperatures. The cold temperature was on the outside but the warmth in the hearts of all military history and aviation lovers.
A very nice initiative to
be repeated ... and why not during the summer period with bathing clothes this time!
