Which aeroplanes are expected this year?
The Fly & Drive-In has become a well known event among pilots of old timers, both in Belgium and abroad. Each time it gathers a few hundreds of old timer air airplanes in Schaffen. This ranges from classics from the thirties such as the Stampe SV4, Boeing Stearman and de Havilland Tiger Moth to somewhat more recent airplanes such as Jodels, Yakovlevs and Pipers.
Free parking is available on the airfield. The entrance for the Fly-In is on the road Diest-Tessenderlo (N174).
