I think it will be a question of price, first of all. And also, of the airport of departure. Ryanair is the only carrier flying from Charleroi. Not every traveller live in Brussels. For quite a few Belgian, Charleroi is nearer than Brussels (for example, for those who live in Arlon, Namur, Mons, Cha...

CRL - ROM/CIA and back with Ryanair

14 dec 2005 - Ryanair flight 6105 : Charleroi 0750 - Rome Ciampino 0935, Boeing 737-800 EI-CSX. Take-off 15 min late due to ATC delays at Roma; and indeed we did a 360° over il lago di Bracciano prior to landing. At Ciampino, there is still the twin piston-engined seaplane as gate guardian on the mi...

Many possibilities (for passengers): -engines on/engines off -chocks off/chocks on -stepping in/stepping off the aircraft -beginning of take-off run/end of landing run As for me, I use the last one, and I have clocked until now 836 hours (with 634 take-off). Can anyb...

My first flight was on Air France Caravelle III F-BHRL "Dauphiné", from Nice to Brussels, on july 10th, 1966. When climbing aboard through the rear ventral door, I was a bit apprehensive, as I had no idea of the inside of an airliner ! Taking off towards the east, the Caravelle climbed turning sharp...

Fog at CRL

According to the BSCA Manager (on the TV yesterday evening) there is severe fog statistically only ten days a year at Charleroi. It thus seemed more important to build first a new air terminal rather than implementing better landing aids - they had to choose, as they don't have the money to do the t...
