Both the spotterscorner and the spot at Naamsesteenweg allow good pictures to be made of the arrivals and departures (Friday and Monday) with a 300mm lens. Make sure you do not stand between the traffic lights and you park your car correctly.

So the flightcrew did not realise they were talking to the Belgians? I don't know. And even if they did, at first they would have expected to be talking to Brussels Control because they were lower than they usually were. But if they did realize it, they should have picked up on the fact that they w...

One last tip: do not forget that those Latin American carriers land between 9am-2pm. They do not leave before the late evening, so make that you are early enough over there! At what time do they leave MAD ? Does someone has updated info on spotting at Terminal 4? Does it require to be already check...

a few years ago, a FRA bound NW DC10 landed in BRU. The only similarity is that both airports have a rwy 25R. All pax could follow what was happening and some even were thinking the airplane was being hijacked. No cockpit crew member or ATC saw the error until the a/c landed Same here, the ATC appr...

Quite a lucky guy with this "small" mistake, compared to this: Spanair/Nordic A Nordic MD80 operating on behalf of Spanair mistakenly flew from Madrid to Seville instead of flying to Santiago de Compostella on Monday (Aug 7). The Swedish crew likely confused the airport codes which are SCQ and SVQ....

I don't understand ATC didn't notice this error. Or even the control tower at Poznan "Lawica"-airport. Why didn't they inform pilot before the approach began.

Although the F14 is about 30 years old. It's still a modern looking machine capable of doing different operational tasks. I like the F14 a lot especialy the headshot views look stuning. It will be missed by many people.

No big deal as it was way to hot to stay outside. But here a grip of late aftenoon/evening traffic. Nice pictures, how did you make those (camera...
