Kleine Brogel at dusk, two beauties, two special painted aircraft are being prepared for a night fair…a photo shoot at dusk and at the beginning of the night.

Those are the ideal conditions to shoot aircraft in special light and this was the opportunity offered by the Belgian Air Force to some Belgian specialized journalists.

The technical team of Kleine Brogel did all they could to place the planes in the best way, added spotlights and the fire-brigade was also present to spray water on the apron for some reflection effects.
The photo shoot started at sunset giving amazing colors to the “tiger” and the “Vortex”. When the night came, the technicians switched on the aircraft navigation lights, strobe light and position lights to give the most beautiful effect. Even the runway lights were switched on to have a special effect in the background giving the chance to take some really remarkable pictures.
More than words can tell, the pictures speak for themselves. It was a great and long awaited occasion and therefore SBAP would like to express their gratitude to the Comopsair IPR team Brussels, Kleine Brogel IPR team, the F-16 technicians under the lead of Maxime, the
technical  chief of Mitch Beulen demo team and the fire-brigade for all what they did to give us the opportunity to shoot those two Belgian beauties!
