Oostende Raversijde 16/04/49

Daniel Brackx Collection



BAF Photo.


Almost twice the same aerial view of Oostende (Raversijde) Airport taken with forty years of difference.

The top picture was taken on 16 April 1949 while the lower picture was taken in the late eighties.

The reserved grounds for the proposed East -West runway are clearly visible on both shots.

The North-Sea is to the top of both pictures.
