Acrobobs Gloster Meteor F.8

The first aerobatic display team in the Belgian Air Force was formed in 1952 and were called the "Acrobobs".

The team, under the leadership of Robert Bladt, flew four Gloster Meteor F.8 jet fighters from No. 350 Squadron. Their first display was at Gosselies on May 18, 1952 and, in July of that year, they were awarded first place in an international contest in Lyon, France.

The "Acrobobs" were eventually disbanded in 1956.
