During the last week of February 2020 five pilots from the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) Historic Flight, two of them new to the Flight, visited the BBMF at RAF Coningsby to conduct pre-season training in the BBMF DH T10 Chipmunk aircraft. This is now a regular event in the BBMF calendar and is part of a reciprocal arrangement where the BBMF fighter pilots visit the RNLAF Historic Flight at their base at Gilze-Rijen in the Netherlands to fly in their AT-16 Harvards. These exchange visits are conducted under a Memorandum of Understanding.
