Re: Diversions from around the globe (medical, technical, ...) 2022

This morning Surinam flight SLM994 diverted from EHAM to EBBR after quite some holding over the Netherlands, more than likely weather related.

Thanks in advance!

Currently no C-130 visible from the outside.

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2022

Rehearsal for a fly past of multiple military aircraft overhead Brussels city, necessitating a temporary stop of arrivals and departures at Brussels Airport. Wasn't it because of OO-GPS on a mission (which one?) above Brussels? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FdQ69IlXkAE1eaE?format=jpg&name=small T...

That looks like a piece of the aft engine cowling of a PW4056, which could certainly match with TF-AMC.

Re: Where is HB-JJH

Correct, and it seems like LHTechnics has been quite busy taking parts off the aircraft.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2022

Don’t forget the maintenance side of things. Even though MX is not as visible from the outside world, introducing a new type, even if it is a derivative, is no small feat. Even a new engine type can cause quite some headaches. (Ref. the introduction of the RR engine on the A330 at BEL).

Re: Trivia 2022 (miscellaneous news)

Speaking from experience: It's not exactly uncommon for pilots to inadvertently transmit a message which was meant for the Cabin Crew on an ATC Frequency. If you were to consider a perfect storm (a pilot from an aircraft taxiing to the runway uses the words "cabin crew take-off in two minutes.&...

Re: BRU 31/03/2022

Anybody with a clue as to what OOSFB is up to? It was scheduled to fly BRU-DLA-NSI-BRU but seemingly diverted on the way back from NSI to TMR (Tamanrasset in Algeria). Then performed a flight from TMR to MRS (Marseille) and is now (1629 local time) finally back at BRU. As far as I can see, it was sc...

Re: BRU 19/03/2022

Whilst I can not be 100% positive, FR24 data does indeed suggest they both performed a touch and go at EBOS.
This kind of routing is rather typical for an acceptance flight, so perhaps re-registration may be happening shortly.

Re: 2022 Military escalation Russia - Ukraine - USA - NATO - Europe

Thanks KriVa. Indeed the signals are willingly transmitted hence my remark. Although previously you could "see" the receiving aircraft in the vicinity of the tanker, now there are none and it is hard to believe that tankers are drilling holes in the sky for hours without being "at wo...

Re: 2022 Military escalation Russia - Ukraine - USA - NATO - Europe

Why would it be a stealth aircraft? Both ADSBExhange and FR24 use ADS-B data as their source, no radars are used. As such, as soon as an aircraft stops transmitting said data, it will be invisible to either of those services. It will however not be invisible to radars if in range, be they land-based...

Re: Anomalies in BRU-ANR-CRL-LGG-OST in 2022

I would assume so.
Historic METAR data shows fog around 100-200 feet at that time, and EBOS is only equipped with ILS CAT I (or equivalent minima on LPV approaches), so they may not have been able to land there.

Re: TUI fly in 2021

Anybody with a clue as to why OOTMZ and OOTMB operated a flight to Quebec on 23/12?
They seem to both have flown back on the same day, so a winter-leasing for Sunwing seems out of the question for this?
Flight numbers were JAF9720 and JAF9601 respectively.

Re: BRU 17/12/2021 Goodbye BAF C130

CH-07 back in the air now.
Seems to be on a pretty direct track to EBFN now.
From what I've heard, there will still be some flying this week, and next week the C130s will be flown out of EBMB for storage. No clue where to.

Re: 747 diversion Ghana - Brussels

Having checked other sources, which I won’t be able (and allowed)to disclose publicly, I very much doubt the veracity of this information too.
Perhaps a diversion to EBLG instead of EBBR happened, but at least for EBBR I can’t find any tail number which sticks out.

The original post didn't mention a loss of pressurisation, only a pressurisation issue, which this certainly is.
