Mirage 5 BD 09 Restoration Group Brustem

Since February 2018, a group of volunteers brought back one of the Belgian Mirage 5 to its old glory. Mirage 5BD 09 was stored on former Brustem Air Base. We visited this iconic delta wing on October 27th 2019 for an exclusive night shooting with some other aviation enthusiasts. In the meantime, it moved to the Droneport Hangar in March 2020.

It is one of 16 double seaters of Belgian Air Force and left the SABCA factory in March 1971. Its last flight in service of the Belgian Air Force took place on January 13th 1994. For further information, check the webiste of BD09 Team.

We want to thank to whole team for making this nice evening possible. It was a pleasure and we will come back, for sure!
