Skytech Helicopters were abandoned MI-26T helicopters located on the site in Belgium. Helicopters were sold as metal parts in 2015. Skytech was founded in Belgium in November 1989 by helicopter pilots Thierry Lakhanisky and Lucienne De Dryver. The company is known for pioneering commercial operation of the Mil MI 26T in Western Europe from 1992.
The companies assignments included aerial works, air ambulance/medevac, pax and freight charters, fire services, hazardous freight, offshore, police and survey/surveillance. On February 18, 2008 the company was declared bankrupt for so-called unpaid depts, but as this was not the case an appeal against this decision was made, so by June 2008 this action was cancelled.
After a ban to use the big Russian helicopters in Europe, some of these were stuck for 13 years in the harbour of Zeebrugge only moving to the Antwerp harbour in October 2021. These helicopters where transported from the airports of Bierset and Gosselies to the harbor of Zeebrugge.
The machines had to be shipped to Russia, but due of financial problems they were stuck at the site of the transport company. Few helicopters were sold as metal parts in 2015. Pictures of abandoned Skytech Helicopters were made in 2010 by Belgium Urbex explorers.
