The second edition of the Baobab Beach Club is no more place next to the Cup in Westerlo, at the industrial zone at the height of the Frame 21, the Business centre, close to the E313. Also now it will be the summer bar a Cuban style, which the old helicopter of the Cuban leader Fidel Castro, the most notable exponent should be. The helicopter was Tuesday on a wall of shipping containers, 8 feet high, placed in position and will serve as the dj booth.
“The helicopter was in the 60's in secret from Russia to Cuba in senegal, where he spent over 20 years as a part of the personal fleet of Fidel Castro and his entourage,” says Kristof Van Loy, that the summer bar organises with his company Rent-A-Lounge.
The lightly armored transport helicopter was then sold to the republic of Djibouti, where he held a number of years as a search and rescue helicopter service did. A German collector found him eventually in Somalia, after which he converted into a dj booth. “It is from this helicopter with amazing historical background that we, our dj's perform. This time in a peaceful atmosphere, with, of course, rotating blades.”
