Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

OO-SFB did a "Go and Touch" minutes ago.

According to FR24 she was bound for AMM, though I doubt it is for a cabin refit and painting, but that was a 7-minute flight. Up to 1800ft max and return immediately.

Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

Thanks again KriVa.

Yes I had seen the APP plate for 07L RNP published last week, now I understand why as you said.

Why then is the VOR/DME HJ only as you vector them until they get the RWY in sight after SS. How is that different from flying the VOR (when not u/s).
Thanks.
