|Chipmunk Meet 2005 at Malle (EBZR)|
Having moved from Brasschaat at the last minute, the 2005 edition of the Chipmunk Meet was held at Malle/Zoersel airfield (North of Antwerpen) between 13 and 16 May 2005. Assigned for a different job at Malle, Dirk A Geerts of Aeroscript was fortunate enough to be present when the first participants arrived on "Friday the 13th" May. The first Chipmunk meet was organised at Lons le Saunier/Courlaoux (LFGL) in France in 1998 and has since attracted more and more participants. The 2005 edition, which was the 7th Chip meet, could boost no less than 14 different Chipmunk visitors over the four days, quite a success for an aircraft which after 47 years of loyal service (first flight: 22 may 1946) retired from active military service in March 1997. In November 1948 even the Belgian Air Force acquired two Chipmunks for evaluation purposes (ultimately the SV-4B was chosen as next trainer) (click here for some pics).
