Re: Crashes and serious incidents/accidents in 2019

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.

Re: Trivia 2019 (miscellaneous news)

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...

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

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...

Tuifly's OO-JEB Tangier->Antwerp diverted to BRU due to fog @ANR. Subsequent flight of OO-JEB to Palma departed from BRU with 1 hour delay, so all in all the impact for the passengers was rather limited.

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Airbus A220's? Lufthansa/Swiss? Nope, Lufthansa is already wet-leasing 2 A220's from Air Baltic. Air Baltic is in the ACMI business and would have been more 'cost effective'. But they don't have A220's available for ACMI at the moment. The A220-100 would have been perfect out of ANR (Air Baltic has...
