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

RNAV is the way to go. And you know what, an RNAV procedure used to exist (I should have quoted EBBU's post in full. Here it is again, now without any omissions :-)) The arrival procedure for 07L is an offset VOR/DME, with a last visual part. This is not available after sunset (07L has no approach l...

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

If wind conditions remain as they are, the 07 runways will permute at sunset: 07R for arrivals, 07L for departures. What's the point of doing that? The arrival procedure for 07L is an offset VOR/DME, with a last visual part. This is not available after sunset (07L has no approach lights). ... That ...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2019

and now has left ANR for KTW (Katowice), but is cruising at FL100!! So seems to be requiring a lot more maintenance at KTW.... Not an ideal moment for TUIFly to have temporarily one more 'AOG' airplane. And 6 days later, OO-TEA returned to BRU at a normal cruising level of FL380. At least all four ...

Maybe Flightradar24 can provide flight the info? Yes, and so can: live-flight.com, flightstats.com, flightwhiz.com,... (although some show the cancelled ANR-RMU flight, still as 'scheduled') All these websites are hardly known by the general public. Even TUI Fly's webpage on 'flight info' links thr...

TUIfly's OO-TEA is 'AOG' at ANR since yesterday after returning from INN(sbruck). Yesterday's ANR flight to TNG (Tangier) was replaced by a flight out of BRU. Today's ANR - RMU (Muricia) flight departed from CRL with OO-JEM. Starting with the Murcia return flight, OO-JEM took over the rest of the no...

Djeez... How much does an ATC earn a month? 4000? 5000? Unbelievable. I don't always agree with their strikes, but ground staff lifting a few hundred pieces of heavy luggage a day for about 1500 euro a month protesting about lack of staff I can understand. But these guys? During the training course...

TB1072 from Malaga to Ostend, is currently heading to the United Kingdom. Diversion or approaching Ostend via London FIR ?
surely won't be diversion; probably Dover - Koksy -> EBOS. Maybe straight-in on rwy08 with current light crosswind.

Absolute disgrace this 'epidemic'.
