BELGIAN LIFT: The Belgian ministry of defense on April 28 placed its transport aircraft under the European Air Transport Command (EATC) in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Since it was set up in 2010, the EATC has conducted nearly 3,500 missions, including 65 aerial refuelings and the medical evacuation of 400 patients. The EATC will eventually number 200 personnel, including 22 Belgians. In the future, it could include other operators of the A400M.
