Airbus A310-222

Since many years the Belgian Air Force operated two Boeing 727 airliners for mid-range transport of personnel and freight. Due to the ever growing demand for the use of Belgian troops on missions abroad the need arose for a large longer legged airliner. As budget restrictions did not permit the acquisition of new machines two second hand Airbus A310-222 aircraft were obtained from Singapore Airlines. Both transporters are based at Melsbroek airbase near Brussels and form part of the 15th Transport Wing.
