Take a flight

into history

The Fouga Magister played a big role in Belgian aviation history. Its distinguishable V-tail and red color make this ex-Belgian Air Force trainer recognizable and unique in every sight.

This French twin-engine jet trainer joined the Belgian Air Force in 1960 as predecessor of the Alpha Jet. Our Fouga "MT-5" was part of the famous display team "Red Devils" and is the only one retaining its original Red Devils "25 years" color scheme. After retirement from the Air Force, "MT-5" was shipped to Israel and later flew in the USA for a private owner.

In 2014, "MT-5" arrived back at its new home base in Antwerp. The aircraft received major restoration and could finally return back to the Belgian skies in 2017, where it belongs.
