From the death of  birdman Vincent de Groof in 1874 to the nightmarish flyers of Magritte (above)..through the sporty motifs of Hergé’s planes to the escapist wonder-machines of the artist Panamarenko (below) most of the finest Belgian flying machines were imagined. Luckily some did escape into the real world. Here are ten pretty Belgian aeroplanes for your enjoyment.

    We know how to make good looking planes! I personally like the Tipsy planes, but I think the Tipsy Trainer is the best looking. SV-4 has given me already some very nice memories 🙂
