Re: Belgian Air Force news

In the meantime it appears the BAF is permanently grounding a second C-130 (which CH-XX?),leaving 9 planes to fulfill the transport-role and para dropping until the first A400M shows up.

Re: OST 22/12/2018 Air Belgium touch-and-goes

If I counted well ABD has been doing more than 16 T&G. And the nimbies are reacting as expected,trying to contact Air Belgium to ask for an explanation and suggesting once again Vatry as an alternative in the true Nimby spirit.

Re: London Gatwick closed for hours after drone activity around the airfield

From what I’ve read elsewhere, the UAVs in question here seem far from toys. There have been reports of 7+ UAVs in the air around EGKK simultaneously, some reports even mentioned “petrol powered” UAVs. This is a delibarate act to bring one of the UK’s biggest airports to a standstill, not some kid ...

A Vamos 747-400 took over from Air Belgium's A340-300. Seating capacity? SLM's own A343 has 12C + 303Y.

A free parking ticket for every customer in the bar, e.g. consuming more than €10 ? I was having the same idea? Why not give a voucher for the parking or so for customers of the restaurant.

Qeshm Air (Iran) to add Belgrade as a technical stop on its A320 service from Tehran to Brussels and Hamburg from 30 November 2018.
Stop at Belgrade to refuel,I presume. Are oilcompanies in BE/GE/... again refusing to supply kerosine to Iranian planes for fear of US sanctions?

Open in the weekend though fm 11 till 22hrs. Reasons claimed: no longer its own entrance and stopping of VLM-flights which led to a lot less...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

Two days ago I was flying EDI-BRU on SN. A large number of passengers were connecting in BRU to a score of European destinations and to TLV. I ask again: network airline or point-to-point? Carsten Spohr is of bad faith if he doesn't realise this. Valid point indeed. Last year(sept) we came back fro...

Dismantling .... (see : https://flightlevel.be/58195/oo-sfn-bru ... nst-vloot/)

Didn't I read somewhere last year that one of the ex-SN A330's,in view of these being amongst the eldest A330's still flying, would be evaluated by Airbus for doing some structural testing?
