14/12/2023: Celebration of Life - NIKOLAY TIMOFEEV.

On Oct. 14, 2023, family and friends gathered for a gripping tribute to Nikolay Timofeev. Guitar legend Steve Morse, along with his equally talented son Kevin, dedicated an impressive guitar piece to his late friend. And, U.S. Aerobatics icon Patty Wagstaff, along with 2 fellow airmen, performed a Missing Man formation in honor of Nikolay. Nikolay Timofeev will forever be remembered as one of the most inspiring aerobatic pilots and coaches.

29/07/2023: Nikolay Timofeev was a beloved and well-respected aerobatic pilot, coach and aeronautical engineer. He passed away suddenly on July 21st, 2023 at age 67. His battle with a number of health setbacks in recent years showed his courage in facing life challenges head-on; he stayed strong and optimistic until the end.

Nikolay: 14/12/1955 - 21/07/2023

Nikolay set new standards in modern aerobatics during his many appearances at airshows and competitions in Europe, North and South America and Asia from 1992 till 2016. His numerous accomplishments include a three-time title of Aerobatic "Unlimited" World Champion and a gold medal in the 1997 World Air Games. Nikolay and his family made a permanent move from Russia to the USA in 2000, where he became a much sought-after aerobatics coach.

Nikolay will always be remembered for skillfully displaying the unique aerobatic capabilities of his SU26M, which he referred to as "my boy". His aerial aerobatic ballet became legendary, set to the classical musical masterpiece of Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake Ouverture", performing maneuvers that defied imagination.

Whoever met him, liked him for life. He coached to teach his students everything he knew, always giving them the best of himself. Today the aviation world, and especially the aerobatics society in Europe, America and Brazil, is in deep mourning for the loss of one of its greatest teachers, one of its most inspiring mentors.

Nikolay's name is written in the skies forever, from where he will continue to inspire people and pilots all over the world.

Nikolay leaves behind his wife Elena, his son Stanislav, his daughter Olga (Michael) Walsh and his grandchildren Camden Walsh and Wesley Walsh.

Celebration of life will take place later this year in his hometown of Ocala, FL.

27/01/2022: Renowned aviation film producer Luc Delestinne is preparing a very special and historical tribute to celebrate the 50 years of the C-130 in service of the Belgian Air Force. For half a century, the Lockheed C-130 "Hercules" became the reliable workhorse of the 15th Wing at Melsbroek. The performances of the C-130 and the know-how of the 15th Wing have become world renowned. Delestinne now wishes, in his own way, to pay tribute to this beautiful aircraft, but also to all pilots, flight engineers, loadmasters and all personnel of the 15th Wing. The film contains historical footage from 30 years ago, with amongst others exclusive footage of the CH-06, that crashed in Eindhoven, but also of the last recent missions in Europe and even of "Tropical Storm” in november 2021 in Gabon. The release of the film is scheduled somewhat medio 2022. Stay tuned!

03/01/2022: It is with great sadness that I have to announce the departure of my dear uncle Raymond Delestinne, the crew-chief of the legendary SLIVERS and called "SLIVER n°3". He had the priviledge to start working on the Spitfire and to end his career on the F-16, living an incredible evolution in military aviation, all in one lifetime. Today, he has rejoined with his lifelong friends Steve Nuyts and Palmer De Vlieger.


30 years ago, Luc Delestinne produced his first aviation reality film called "EAGLE MEN©", the story of the Belgian Air Force F-16 solo display. Today, with "JOZEF, Master of the Sky©" (runtime: 66 minutes), he's connecting the past with the present, producing another milestone aviation film: as a Flemish born native Belgian, with "JOZEF", Luc Delestinne produced the true story of a Canadian born Belgian pilot, Marc "Jozef" Bongartz, actually living in Sankt-Vith in the East, German speaking part of Belgium. Marc was the youngest operational F-104 pilot in the world and one of the most spectacular and trendsetting F-16 display demo pilots of his generation. Marc is telling his inspiring story in French and Simon Schrimpton-Smith is doing the native English voice-over. One cannot imagine a more international production, with a strong Belgian/Flemish/English/German/French/Canadian impact... The past is clearly inspiring the future...
