IRAN - Inspect and Repair As Necessary




During the "Defensiedagen Beauvechain 2002" of the Belgian Forces. The deep maintenance hangar of the SF.260 was open to the public. Beauvechain is also the home base of 5 smaldeel operating a fleet of SF.260M and SF.260D aircraft under command of the 1st Wing. I made some photo's on August 31, 2002.
