The Kleine Brogel - Sanicole airshow was eagerly awaited by aviation enthusiasts.
However, between the time of the ticket sales and the event, things changed and the organizers introduced the famous Covid Pass Ticket (like the French of course) preventing some of the people who had already paid the entrance fees from accessing the two sites and enjoying the events.
At no time did the organizers have the diligence to propose a refund, given the changes in the conditions of access, knowing that this "pass" in question is an infringement of the freedoms of the human being (see article 1 of the constitution of human rights) and that vaccination remains an individual choice (not everyone being or being able to be vaccinated).
I won't go into the polemic and debates here (what is read on social networks is aberrant, social networks being only a name!), in our team there is everything, some were able to access the two airfields and others not.
Therefore, the editorial staff has decided to publish only the pictures taken outside, where there was free access for everyone!
It will be the same for foreign events which align themselves with this "pass", a pure and simple infringement of individual liberties, as did the organizers of the Albert Airshow, La Ferté Alais and more recently the Melun show.
As long as politics tries to medically direct the individual in such conditions of violation of laws and other so-called social pacts, we will act like this.
One last word, we keep seeing commemorations concerning the First and Second World War arguing that "The monuments are erected in homage to all those who fought for our democracy and who fought for our freedom. The transmission of memory, the values of tolerance, respect and citizenship remains paramount" (Breendonk: Monument "Ode to the Resistance" - MOD Mrs Ludivine Dedonder - 26-09-2021).
Our leaders (and I am not specifically focusing on our Minister of Defence) dare to speak of freedom and democracy, while these are blithely flouted by these same people.
L'Union Fait La Force - Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité: these words are nothing but hot air in a Europe that is slowly dying. And if we are all equal before the law (which I doubt more and more) it is really time to wake up and unite, because the un-avowed goal is to divide and rule and create a totalitarian world where the individual will be muzzled once and for all.
This being said, let's move on to the pictures of Friday dedicated to the arrivals at Kleine Brogel airbase.

As long as the event organizers will tend to baricade themselves behind the Covid Safety Pass masquerade, we will refuse to report on the inside part of the event but only cover the outside part, where everyone has unrestricted access and in total freedom. 
In addition, in each report this picture will appear to summerize this clownesque situation!
