|Open School at Saffraanberg|
In the framework of the Open Schools Days, the Royal Technical School at Saffraanberg opened its doors for the large public on 13 March 2005. The main aim of the Open Schools Days is to familiarize young people with the different teaching institutes of the Ministry of Defence. These days offer an excellent opportunity to meet pupils or students of the present school year and exchange ideas, to get acquainted with a military educational environment and to learn more about the didactic equipment of these specialised schools.
The following hardware was on show
Agusta A.109BA H14 is the newest didactic item that the Royal Technical School acquired recently. The helicopter carries the flag of the European Union on the sliding doors following its participation in an EU military peacekeeping operation in the Balkans.
Fouga Magister MT3 in a splendid new Red Devils colour scheme is awaiting transfer to its new location on the roundabout near the entrance of the industrial estate on the former Brustem airbase.
