The Belgian air force is re-forming 1 Wing at Beauvechain, only months after the unit was disbanded following a restructuring of the service ordered by the defence ministry. The 1 Wing has ceased to be Belgium's dedicated interceptor wing. This responsibility has been taken over by 2 Wing at Florennes and 10 Wing at Kleine Brogel. This unit inherited 1 Wing's 349 and 350 interceptor squadrons and their Lockheed Martin F-16A/Bs.The re-activated 1 Wing will become a dedicated training unit and will regroup 5 and 7 squadrons with their Siai-Marchetti SF-260s.
