  • Ernest Oscar Tips was the creator, general manager and designer of the Belgian subsidiary Avions Fairey established at the Gosselies airfield (today Brussels South Charleroi) in 1931. His desired two-seater Tipsy B was powered by the Czechoslovak inverted four-cylinder engine Walter Mikron, hence the aircraft offered a commercial chance for both the Belgian and the Czechoslovak air industries. The war caused the end of its production both in Belgium and in the UK. The modified British version with aerodynamic improvements was presented as Tipsy Trainer or Tipsy Trainer I. The exhibited Tipsy Trainer I was produced in 1939, crashed in 1979. It was acquired by the Belgian Royal Army Museum in 1989 and reconstructed by 2010. It is exhibited next to the post-war Tipsy Belfair (G-AFRJ) fitted with an enclosed canopy.

  • The successful SV4B is a Belgian biplane built by the Stampe & Vertongen Company (Stampe & Renard after the Second World War), designed by Russian designers Ivanow (SV4) and Demidoff (SV4B) in the 1930s as a reflection to the British aerobatic Tiger Moth. The company received orders from both the Belgian and the French Air Force. After the war it succeeded in a competition for elementary and aerobatic trainer of the Belgian Air Force with the Canadian DHC-1 Chipmunk. The first order for 33 aircraft from 1947 was followed by orders from 1952 and 1953 for 12 aircraft each. The displayed 33th produced aircraft sporting colours of the aerobatic Manchots (Pinguins) team was built in 1952 and withdrawn from service in 1976. In the 1990s it could be seen in the main entrance hall of the Zaventem Airport. Currently it is one of several SV4Bs displayed in the Great Hall of the Royal Army Museum in Brussels.
