Belgian Air Force, May 1940

Am looking for online info on the Belgian Air Force Losses, May 1940.
What sites do you recommend?
Exists something like the CWGC Database for Belgium? (And for France?)

Regards,

Bart

Hello Marsyao,

Well, that's not an online source, is it? And since my copy of Peters book is now somewhere between England and a bookshop in Groningen city...

Re: Belgian Air Force, May 1940

Hello Alain,

Mail has been sent. I'm trying to get a clearer picture of what occured to the Belgian Air Force in May 1940. Until now I only stumbled upon tiny fragments. For the operations of the Belgian Army this page was advised to me: The Campaign of the Belgian Army in May 1940 - which is quite informative, but with only limited information regarding Air Force operations or losses.

Regards,

Bart

Bart,

This book(let) has quite some info you're looking for:
http://193.190.242.138/scripts/mgwms...H&P6=77_658107

I'm sure the publisher still has copies in stock.

Groet,

Re: Belgian Air Force, May 1940

Hello Leendert,

Thanks! But I wonder: what is it that hardly any information regarding the Belgian Air Force actions in May 1940 can be found online, when there's plenty to be found regarding the RAF, the Dutch Air Force and Luftwaffe activities in those days. Or is all existing information in French?

Regards,

Bart

Re: Belgian Air Force, May 1940

Hello Bart,

Indeed, most information is in French.

The whole 18 Day campaign of the Aéronautique Militaire Belge is written down in

Avions Hors-série N°18: L'Aéronautique Militaire Belge en mai-juin 1940

by Peter Taghon

Best regards,


Serge

Re: Belgian Air Force, May 1940

Thank you, Serge!

I found on Fighter Biplane Aces from the Second World War these interesting pages:

The Fiat CR.42 in the Belgian Air Force
The Gloster Gladiator in the Belgian Air Force

Regards,

Bart
