Title: Belgian Spitfire XIV
Post by: Haesebrouck on May 28, 2012, 10:56:10 AM
Hello,

I am trying to find some information and pictures about the Belgian Spitfires which were used after the war in the Belgian Airforce.

I have tried to make a replica of one of these machines, serving in the military flightschool  of Koksijde. I gave it the tactical codes of a young pilot (who has lived in my village) but sadly he crashed in 1952 and didn't survive the accident.  Apparently, a lot of these Spitfires were crashed, probably it wasn't an easy machine to fly with?
