30 September - 26 February. This exhibition is dedicated to Sabena, the national airline of Belgium from 1923 until it went bankrupt in 2001.

The exhibition reveals the history of the airline's development, including initiatives such as its introduction of domestic flights in the Congo, by using archive footage and scale models.

One interesting feature is that Sabena's first aeroplane seats were wicker garden-type chairs, soon replaced by safer, more comfortable seats which were manufactured in Sabena workshops until 1970.

Sabena was well-known for its marketing campaigns and some of its publicity posters are included in the airline memorabilia on show.
