There isn’t much left of this decommissioned Fouga CM.170 Magister. It’s little more than an empty fuselage inside a deserted aircraft hangar, its wings and tail assemblies nowhere to be seen. The defunct plane still wears the markings of its national operator, the Belgian Air Component.
In his three-photo set titled “Lost Jet”, urban exploration photographer Kristof Ven showcased the abandoned military aircraft fuselage in all its faded glory. Sporting a pale grey camouflage scheme which blends well with the drab surroundings of the hangar that houses it, the Magister wears the code MT 46 beneath its empty twin cockpits. The “Lost Jet” was photographed in November 2013.
It turns out that the wings have resurfaced with a group of aviation enthusiasts in Germany (hat tip: Francis Lawton).
Update: an earlier version of this article incorrectly referred to MT 46 as an Alpha Jet.
