Message from the BAF on their Facebook page:

"Update Farewell Flight C-130

Due to the bad weather conditions, the Farewell Flight of our Belgian Air Force C-130 can’t take place as planned. Three C-130 Hercules transport aircraft, including 1 Belgian - 1 Polish and 1 American aircraft, will take off from Melsbroek Air Force Base at 1:00 PM to perform a small farewell flight of approximately one hour in our Belgian airspace.

If you still want to make a last picture of our Mighty Herc, it is best to go to the south of our country. The weather conditions in the region of Florennes Air Base are sufficient to photograph the aircraft one last time.

Update of the exact timing will follow as soon as possible!"
Best regards,
Viktor

Chièvres is EBCV and Florennes EBFS. Or did you mean Charleroi and Liege airports?

Rather surprisingly, a BAF C130 is currently in the air, seemingly doing its farewell flight

Indeed, I was on the ramp at EBLG this morning when around midday I heard this specific engine music and saw a Herky Bird doing a low level flypast on RWY 04R.
Can't say for sure it was a BAF though.

CH-12 was in Eindhoven today for a (probably very last) approach.

CH-07 back in the air now.
Seems to be on a pretty direct track to EBFN now.
From what I've heard, there will still be some flying this week, and next week the C130s will be flown out of EBMB for storage. No clue where to.
