Fly-In for old timer aircraft organised on IVAO by Joris Laeremans
August 10th and 11th
Some 18 internet flyers participated, flying mostly World War II aircraft: P51's, Spitfires, Lancaster and B17 bombers and DC3's.
Some aircraft could not land and overflew the airfield, often in formation. Impressive displays.
With a SW wind, in fact a strong wind on the Sunday, rwy 24 was the active runway. Most aircraft used the Averbode abbey as entry /exit point.
As EBDT is absent in FSX it was the EBDT_scenery mentioned on the FlightSim tab of this blog that was used by all of the flyers. The abbey is prominently visible.
Here are some screenshots of the Fly-In:

main parking area at fuel pump, the Lancaster in reality would never be able to take off from the Schaffen airfield.
display: a Lancaster in formation with two spitfires.
There are definite intentions to organize this event again in 2014
