Meanwhile, fog is building up in/near Antwerp.
Same story today, WP141 (Air Antwerp F-50) on finals for EBBR. And TB1262 (TUI ERJ-190) from Murcia will probably have to do the same in half an hour.

Robinson R44 helicopter OO-RFF made a forced landing (autorotation?) into a field... that appered to be a bit too muddy for one skid.... Anyway, any landing you can walk away from, is a good landing :-) (Dutch only) https://www.hln.be/in-de-buurt/torhout/helikopter-maakt-lelijke-buiteling-bij-misluk...

Re: Diversions from around the globe (medical, technical, ...) 2019

Christmas eve's TUI fly flight TB2601 ANR -> Nador (NDR) diverted to Oujda (OUD) due to fog, which cleared up about an hour later, allowing OO-JEM to reposition to NDR. The return flight from NDR to ANR arrived with less than half an hour delay, so minimal impact on the flight schedule.

The A220 seems to be really good compared to the E2. Although one airline in Belgium thinks the E2 is a better product, I fail to see why honestly... any specialist in the E2/A220 battle around here? :) to start, no specialist at all, here... The answer really depends on how many "if's" apply to yo...

Why you want to cause GNSS signal disruption for testing purposes within 5 km of a regional airport and right below 2 of the most used SID's (Nicky & Gilom) is beyond me. Not that the onboard navigation equipment hasn't any alternative means when GNSS signals fail (enough DME's in the area), but jus...
