Exhibit in Brussels Looks Back at Belgium's Sabena Airline (Sept 30 - Feb 26)
Sabena: Progress Came from the Sky
An Exhibit for Belgium’s Gone But Not Forgotten Airline
The Museum du Cinquantenaire in Brussels is proud to present, in cooperation with the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History, an exhibit on Belgium’s Sabena airline, open now through February 26, 2012 from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
In keeping with the renewed interest in the good ol’ days of consumer aviation, the exhibit “Sabena: Progress came from the sky” explores Sabena’s history, advertising campaigns, employee uniforms over the years and the struggle for gender equality.
Sabena was established in 1923, when air travel was still a novelty, and provided generations of passengers the opportunity to travel the world. Undeterred by the risks involved, by the 1920’s Sabena created a network of domestic flights in the Congo! The company’s adventure came to an end in 2001, after filing bankruptcy.
