22nd Antwerp Stampe & 6th Ercoupe Fly In

Although the weather forecast for Saturday and Sunday went from rainy to horrible storm, we enjoyed a nice warm weekend.
Friday 10am, everybody was present to start with the preparations, and by 5pm we were ready to start.
Saturday 8am: coffee and cake to start the day. Weather was cloudy, but eventually it turned out as a sunny day, no wind and quite a crowd. The English Stampes had send message that they would not show up, due to the bad weather forecast. But we had some Belgian Stampes and two Dutch Tiger Moth’s. The Mustang made a nice presentation, later in the day followed but the two-seater Spit who made his appearance around 5pm.
The evening BBQ went well, the spirit was high. Around 1am we closed the doors…
Sunday 8am: coffee and cake for the volunteers, who had a very short night and suffered of a lack of energy. So we made the coffee extra strong and got everybody started by 9 o’clock. The sky was all grey and showers were announced. We had had a lot of rain during the night. So we started in a subdued mood, but as morning progressed weather got warmer, with some sunny spells.
The Stampe formation, with nine aircraft, flew around noon, in bad circumstances: very cloudy and a low ceiling. The Spitfire was delayed till around 3pm. They gave a nice show and then were off to homebase Duxford, only to return an hour later due to bad weather around Ghent.
By 5pm we got the message that severe storms were under way and would reach us by 7pm.
So we started closing down, all hands on deck, and got everything locked up by 7pm.
Glad that everything was now save and sound, we enjoyed the last of the beer… but we never saw a drop of rain.

Pictures will follow asap, but you can also visit the ASA website
