A total of 77 US army helicopters (UH-60 Blackhawk and AH-64 Apache) and 1,900 military have been shipped via Zeebrugge this week. It’s the first time that Belgium has been selected for operation “Atlantic Resolve”. The helicopters will now be brought to Chièvres Air Base for staging, eventually they will fly to Eastern Europe to be stationed at the borders with Russia. Photographer Tony Osborne shared some great pictures via Twitter.

Last week a United Airlines Boeing 747 landed at Brussels Airport, already bringing in the military staff and crew for mission “Atlantic Resolve“. 12 helicopters were transported by air from Texas. A total of 89 helicopters have been deployed for this mission.
