Last Alpha Jet receiving full maintenance on Beauvechain

alphalogoDuring my visit today on Beauvechain AFB with the Gilze Rijen Aviation Society spotters group. Our guide and a technician confirmed that Dassault Brequet Alpha Jet A+ AT-13 will be the last Belgian Air Force stripped and fully serviced in Beauvechain. This proces is going on at this moment. What happens next is still not known. But since in the recent years Belgian Alpha Jets got replacement wings from German ones. This is a sign that the airframe is at the end of its lifecycle. Will see what the future brings. Hate to see this one go in the near future.
