Melsbroek 09/45 Dewoitine 520

 

Abandoned at Grimbergen airfield by the Luftwaffe Flieger Zielgeschwader II, this French built Dewoitine 520 fighter 

found its way to nearby Melsbroek airfield, where it was pictured in September 1945.

A typical scene at Melsbroek airbase in the seventies, at the moment that the 15 Transport-Wing was being completely reequipped.

From left to right you can recognise a Mystère 20, Boeing 727, Percival Pembroke and its replacement the Swearingen Merlin

and on the foreground the venerable C-47 Dakota. This picture was taken from the military passenger terminal on 7 May 1976.
