Hunter F.58 J-4077 at Weelde, late 1999; Nicolaas Van den Bergh

Hiding away in a hangar at Weelde AFB is this ex-Swiss Hunter.The last flight J-4077 made was on 04-10-1995, when Kaptain Stefan Brunner flew the aircraftfrom Meiringen in Switzerland to Weelde. The aircraft is stored the and is is the property of the Royal Aviation Museum Brussels. The airfield personnel look after it; keep the tires inflated, move it around from time to time etc. The engine hasn't been run for four years now, so it definitely needs a good inspection (as does the whole aircraft). The hangar in which it is stored in is kept to a humidity of approximately 40 %, so the structure is in very good shape.
