She's back Hooray ! Roundabout story !

Recommended Posts

Hello Dears,

For years, we used to see it !!

B9717036304Z.1_20180925101837_000+G9IC3M7RQ.1-0

This F-84F standing proud on the roundabout of the RN40 and RN97 Near the Florennes AB !

Then last year…. This happened !

3415994

The trucker fell asleep seemingly, and the fighter has been teared off its block

Almost the only Belgian F-84F to score a kill :rofl2:

3416002

Once again, the crash's statement would have seemed incredible for an average insurance broker… You say that the other vehicle is a '50 fighter ???? :tumble:

The F-84 was retrieved by the militaries and then for month, I go from time to time to paid her a visit

I will find my pic of the poor F-84, waiting for her fate on old tyres and pallets!

Now !! we've got her back, not sure that it was a 100% the same aircraft but I'm glad to see her back !

Painted in RAF colors and moreover to depict the Aircraft of the Maj Marette, who performed aerobatics in airshow !

And also off airshow….:whistle:

The 'new' F-84 is certainly an eye catcher, very smart colours.

 

Mig-17 in the undergrowth?

I think there's a strong case for leaving PB-25 on the plinth - lets start a petition!

Love the way you guys can display them and they don't get vandalised. Sadly we have too many idiots here!
