Yet another crash - Mustang @ Duxford

Not seen reported here but see the link for the photo of the year, in my humble opinion.

Re: Pam Ann comes to Belgium !

Not laugh out loud funny but the BA girl is right on the money. Shame she didn't do any of the US airlines, mind you she isn't quite old enough for that !!!! Perhaps the humour is a bit too British for most Belgian tastes? C PS have you seen "Come Fly With Me" on BBC 1 yet. If you think this video w...

Noted a couple of Swiftair 73's around 14.00 but these were KDY & KLR - maybe an aircraft change?

Re: BRU 26/01/2011

@ tangolima Why bother posting about common or mudane stuff when some real gems go unreported? Take today. There is a Brazilian Air Force Embraer 135 sitting at Abelag which is a pretty rare siting, compared with the Saudia 74 which is on, at least, its 3rd visit that I know of. As to HB-JGJ, it spe...

Could be US Army Chinooks but just as likely to be KLu versions. If you check out SBS listings for Belgium they may well show up

Re: Just fly for the sake of it

Ladies, ladies! Calm down or you will ruin your handbags from all that bashing each other. No wonder aviation enthusiasts have such a bad reputation when all we do is bicker. @ jan_olieslagers I am pretty sure most of us would love to fly ourselves but many things in life come between us and our wis...

Re: BRU 25/10/2010 : Casa Aviocar still present?

@ tl

N189RB is not a special visitor I'm afraid. It lives in the Abelag hangar and has been resident at BRU for a couple of years. It was originally to take up Belgian marks but has srayed US reg'd for some reason.

That is the romatic in you. I have little or no soul. I love aviation but see aircraft as machines that fly hence my not wanting them to be male or female.

Re: BRU 13/10/2010

@ hvs89 2 things 1. aircraft have no gender they are it, not he or she! 2. whilst the correct serial of the E-4 is 73-1677 it is presented on the fin as 31677. US serials are painted on different types in different ways and take some time to learn the systems of fiscal year etc. Give tangolima a cha...

@ mill100
Someone to confirm they're actual arrival + that these Casa's are making (at least) one nightstop?
Info on std/etd highly appreciated!
If they are doing the same as the 2 which arrived last Saturday (unreported on Luchtzak!) they will nightstop

Re: British Airways introduces the new B777-300ER

It flew right over Belgium yesterday - routeing FERDI - BUPAL. Just a shame that it was cloudy at the time but I guess it will be a regular feature, back and forth.

Re: Bombardier Q400 gets a new life as a freighter

the Q400 (and the de Havilland Dash 8 from which it was developed) is probably the most successful turboprop of all time. I suspect that quite a few manufacturers would dispute that quote. Fokker with F27/50 Beechcraft with 1900 and Antonov for its An24/26 which was built in vast numbers (c3000). A...
