De internationale helikopter luchtvaartshow ‘Belgian Helidays’ werd voor de 8° keer georganiseerd op vliegveld Luik op 2 & 3 juni 2007. Aange- moedigd door het enorme succes van de voorgaande edities opende de Wing Helikopters van het militaire vliegveld van Luik-Bierset opnieuw zijn deuren voor het publiek en bood een fantastische airshow aan. In 2005 waren meer dan 100 helikopters aanwezig komende van 12 verschillende landen. Dit unieke event werd wijd besproken in alle media alsook in de gespecialiseerde pers. Meer dan 35.000 bezoekers waren aanwezig op de vorige editie. Het publiek zal in grote getale aanwezig zijn op de luchtvaarshow en de winsten ervan worden overgemaakt aan goede doelen.
