Re: Air Belgium in 2020

Negative. 5000 € is 5000 € and 273K is 273K. If you perhaps meant the way facts and figures are presented by certain media, then I totally share your scepticism. Finding the facts is one thing, knowing how to interpret them is quite another. Reading a balance sheet is not an easy matter, for just on...

Police helicopter over Haacht?

For the best part of the last hour - roughly 19:30-20:30 UTC, and no end to it as I type this - a helicopter has been slowly circling the area near Haacht railway station. It is not visible on flightradar24, and sounds much like our Federal Police MD900 NOTARs. Would it really be the police? What ev...

Re: Crash Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 Tehran-Kiev UR-PSR (08/01/2020)

So what may have caused the transponder to suddenly stop transmitting?
I cannot know, and I dislike speculation, but to answer the question as asked, one possible reply might be that it was switched off.

Re: Crash Ukraine Airlines PS-752 Teheran-Kiev UR-PSR (08/01/2020)

Are the back boxes normally not given to an aviation authority (or eventually to the black box manufacturer) for read out, and not to a private company that is directly involved with the crash? Yes, exactly my understanding. Actually I seem to remember that the local aviation authority is always th...

Jan will explain you the difference

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

And didn't NOTAMs have a maximum life cycle of 90 days, too?
My reading would rather be "grounding continued, no end in sight yet".

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

[[ off-topic ]] For this once, dear @Atlantis, I feel it is you that are needlessly negative. Certainly there are those who post all kinds of ideas about how to improve airports and/or airlines; it annoys me too because it sounds so much like the "armchair manager" phenomenon that I so loathe. It is...

Re: Brussels Airport monthly traffic figures

You are welcome to your opinion, yes, of course, for what it is worth. As I've stated before: opinions are plenty, and cheap - everybody has several on hand. Better have more to offer, though, than criticism from the side line - that is all too easy. Like all those "supporters" at Anderlecht FC, the...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Mind you, there is even no mention of a 5G network.
What is mentioned is a 5G-ready network - whatever that may mean.
