EBNE Neerpelt - go and see for yourself. Hospitality is excellent, though!

Hi,

Neerpelt ? Living in Lommel, working in Neerpelt, never ever heard of an active airfield here ! :shock:

If it flies its Kleine Brogel, it it hasnt a jet-engine its Keiheuvel !
What and where is Neerpelt airfield and are the cows already removed ?

No cows but maize can be an issue - I happened to fly within inches.

As to "where is", the AIP is your friend.

And perhaps have your hearing checked ;)

Does a river qualify as an airport? Then the Ivalo River in Finland!

Knowing your favourite vacation spot I'd say it is an Mi-17 somewhere in DPRK but which airport I'll give up.

Siem Reap Airport in Cambodia. They had a conveyor belt for the luggage that was about 2 meters long.
