On 2 September, Virunga pilot Anthony Caere will present his new aircraft at Ostend Airport

Back in April 2017, Virunga pilot Anthony Caere – also known from the documentary Flying Doctors (één) – had a serious crash with a Cessna 206. He had to recover from a serious head injury due to the crash. Anthony became world famous as he saved a one-year-old chimp out of the hands of poachers.

Last year, Anthony started with a crowdfunding to buy a new aircraft. That aircraft has now been painted in the official Virunga colors, and he is very proud to present the aircraft to its sponsors and followers. On Sunday 2 September between 10:00 and 16:00, you will be able to visit the aircraft at Ostend Airport.

Bart Noëth: Since 1996, I have been working in the Belgian airline industry, from a weekend job as a cabin aircraft cleaner to a flight attendant. After the demise of Sabena - in 2001, I created a website called www.luchtzak.be, originally a meeting place for plane spotters and aviation freaks. Since 2017, the website changed into a professional news site. Next to aviation, I love to travel, wine and dine and enjoy my time off(-line) with my girlfriend, friends and family. My favourite football squad is KV Mechelen, I am an Ironman 70.3 finisher and my ambition is to complete a full Ironman.
