Exceptional transport for Belgian Police Air Support helicopter surprises passers-by


Passers-by near Evere, Belgium looked up in surprise as this Belgian Police Air Support MD900 Explorer helicopter (registered OO-POH or G-12) was transported from Melsbroek (Brussels Airport) to Zellik last Wednesday (14 October). 

Ben Van Lint, in the right place at the right time, was able to capture this exceptional transport and explains: “I talked with the police officer guiding the truck, the helicopter is going to Zellik. A different, yet pleasant surprise!”

This Belgian Police Air Support (Directie Luchtsteun or DAFA) is a specialised police force providing aerial assistance to Federal and Local police corps.

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.
