Route overhead Tongeren (B)
Meeting at Hasselt Aerodrome (Kiewit, Belgium) with
In the afternoon we had an intermediate landing at Hasselt Aerodrome, which has a grass runway. We had a meeting with Miguel ON1AJZ and his YL. We drunk a good cup of coffee, having a nice chat.
In the meanwhile Hugo ON6HN was changing
the antenna from vertical to horizontal polarization in his
28 meters high mast.

Remark : this way of photographing is not easy in a smaller plane with unexpected movements ( sometimes even violent ) and a small camera. Also these photographs were made through the windows of the airplane. The door was closed during this flights. Such a window is never 100% transparent, not ideal to photograph. To photograph slantingly through a window : the angle between camera and window can be frequently no 0 or 180 degrees. The thick and fairly untransparent plexiglass delivers bad pictures.
Other people did try also it in the fixed conviction that it would succeed however. Unfortunately it produced only splendid artistic creations ( in most of the cases ).
De PH-ASL is niet meer, het vliegtuig
is helaas met drie inzittenden verongelukt. Daarvoor is ook de PH-SDB
geweest bij een accident, dat betrof een vrijwel geslaagde
noodlanding in een weiland.
