The Flanders Aviation Society (FAS) organized a great charity event on April 5th, supporting the Child Cancer Foundation. The evening was organized at the BARCO facilities in Kuurne, and Bronco Demo Team was kindly invited to take part. The theme of the evening was a presentation by Cdt Davy Blancquaert talking about his experience flying the F-16.
On arrival, the merchandise stand was set up, and the public started to come in to say hello. The reception hall was quickly filled up, and around 19.30 the presentation started. Cdt Davy Blancquaert made a very interesting presentation about the history of the F-16 in the Belgian air Force till the newest equipment used in today’s war scenes. Talking about the training needed to become an F-16 pilot, and his daily work-scheme. Included were some great footage of recent activities in Afghanistan and Libya.

Just before the break, a presentation was made by one of the members of the Child Cancer Foundation of the Hospital of Ghent, giving more information about the foundation, and what great work they do. The gifts were presented of the raffle, which included some really nice items like books, pleasure flights, and the cherry on the pie, a fantastic wooden model of the 349sqn F-16.
