Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

=== Belgium ===
The Belgian scenery development is back on track !
'''''Need to add a fancy and very fat screenshot representing this scenery. (feel free to add somethings very fat !)'''''
The scenery development of Belgium started around 2011 and stalled around 2013. Some parts of this external scenery has been pushed to TerraSync in 2015. But since 2015 nothing has been improved in TerraSync.
The author of the Belgian scenery is a great fan of ULM's, GA and helicopters. No wonder that he focus on little airfields. However, he currently work back on the massive EBBR (Brussels Airport) and EBBL (Kleine-Brogel) mil and many more little airfields.
Actually, most of the Belgian airports got a technical update, to match the current FlightGear requirements. (mind the elevation data, airport accuracy, optimizing of objects and textures, night texture animation, adding shared models to fill up the airfields...).
Some airfields, so far EBBL and EBSW, got a serious lifting since 2013 and needs testers before these data get pushed to the TerraSync server. Much more will come very soon.
Those who love military stuff would love EBBL. The EBBL military airbase is completely photo realistic textured and require a special attention to testers! The EBBL military airfield is build like how it is in real life !
'''We need testers ! Volunteers who test and report issues on: {{github issues url|dvanmosselbeen|flightgear-belgian-custom-scenery}} before the scenery get pushed to the TerraSync server.'''
'''The current status''':
A [[Belgium|Belgian page]] has been created on the FlightGear Wiki to give you more information of the current development status.
However, for the moment, as the documentation is also in progress, the documentation is stored on the wiki of the projects repo. In the mean time, the documentation should move to the wiki of FlightGear. For the full list of improved airports with screenshots and more information of each Belgian airfield, see: {{github wiki url|dvanmosselbeen|flightgear-belgian-custom-scenery|path=Airports-list}}
Follow, download and contribute to it's development on: {{github wiki url|dvanmosselbeen|flightgear-belgian-custom-scenery}}
If any Belgian has contacts with local pilots or airfield employees, or have usable information, feel free to contact David Van Mosselbeen (david.van.mosselbeen@gmail.com - +32 496 28 38 96).
