Melsbroek Indian Motor Day 2010


Text & Pictures : Serge Van Heertum - SBAP



The 13st edition of Indian Motor Day was organised at Melsbroek Air Base on Saturday May 29th. This manifestation is in fact a biker concentration and the start point of their run is the 15th Transport Wing tarmac. This event can be consider as a little open door and the interest, beside to see plenty of impressive bikes, is also the possibility to have a look at the 15th Wing fleet and the Brussels National airport activities. Behalf the C-130's and other Embraer's of the Belgian Air Component a special guest was present coming from Canada, a CC-130E equipped with the COPS (C-130 Open Skies Pod System) pod used for the Open Skies treaty missions.
Remark : SAMSON (
Special Avionics Mission Strap-on) is the Lockheed denomination for this pod that you will find in many article about the Open Skies Treaty.
