This morning, Belgian Defence helicopter Agusta A109 registered H22 left Beauvechain airbase for its last and final flight. After a 2-hour flight over parts of Belgium, the helicopter touched down at Ostend Bruges International Airport around 11:00 LT.

After dismantling the blades and de-fuelling the Agusta, the helicopter was transported by road to nearby VLOC, Vlaams Luchtvaart Opleidingscentrum (Flemish Air Navigation Education Centre).

VLOC regroups some of the pilot- and MRO-education in Flanders’ region. At VLOC, the Agusta will be used as an instructional airframe for future MRO technicians. The utility helicopter will join the iconic all-black Westland Sea King SAR helicopter RS05, which has been donated to VLOC by the Belgian Defence some years ago.
