|Interestingly if you look below on the ground there are three wrecked aicraft. Further research reveals they are Republic F-84F Thunderstreaks (FU-63 marked 'BA-56', FU-183 marked 'BA-06' and FU-181) of the Belgian Air Force which had been withdrawn from service in the mid 1960s. They were positioned here on the PAMPA firing range at Helchteren in 1980 to be used as air-to-ground targets.|
