This was part of the "Suits On Tour". Were 9 of us travelled to Belgium and decided to wear suits the whole time and our group shots. We did get some rather abusing looks from the locals!
This has been on my list for a very very long time since first seeing this on Facebook. We got in and found these beautiful machines. We bumped into the owners son when we was in there. He explained that he did not understand the fuss of people coming to visit these from all over Europe! We had a long chat with the bloke and he was happy to give us 10 minutes. These have been here for over 40 years. The guys dad was employed by the Belgium government to be in charge of the expedition. After it was all over the government did not know what to do with these beautiful machines. there was 3 of them and these are 2. The other one is in a museum in Belgium on show. The present day does not have much planned for these. It is a shame no one wants them and the owner was asking us for ideas! Hopefully these will be kept and preserved for the future.
