Yes indeed. I thought the Belgian Air Force still had 11 C-130's? (out of 12+1 and 2 lost )
If there are 9 to be sold , what is/was the faith of the other 2?( and which registration?)
Who can shed some light on this?
Thanks

CH-10 has been donated to the Fire Department at Brussels Airport, it now sits outside Fire Station West, South of OUT1. No clue about the other “missing” tail(s).

Currently the following ones are involved in operations "here and there".

CH-03
CH-05
CH-07
CH-11
CH-13

Maybe a good place to ask about the others is here :
