Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

A rather large mobile crane is erected in the vicinity of stands 140-144, and might interfere with various signals needed for landing on 25R.
Hence, 25R is closed for landings. Ad hoc visual approaches might be a possibility.

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

Some problems with de-/anti-icing systems apparently.
The flight in question was later on flown with a B738 from BRU instead.

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

I have a feeling the A330s are also needed dearly to operate the normal long haul schedule, and they don’t really have a spare to operate a charter flight.

I can remember a similar plan a few years ago which didn’t work out quite the way we planned. :-)

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

I heard the same thing some time ago.
However, I wouldn't consider it improbable or even impossible for them to perform that analysis on site in Bangor.

Re: London Gatwick closed for hours after drone activity around the airfield

From what I’ve read elsewhere, the UAVs in question here seem far from toys. There have been reports of 7+ UAVs in the air around EGKK simultaneously, some reports even mentioned “petrol powered” UAVs. This is a delibarate act to bring one of the UK’s biggest airports to a standstill, not some kid w...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2018

I seem to recall it’s in LJU for a C-check?
And if I remember it correctly, it won’t return sporting the Tintin colour scheme, but it will return in SN colours.

Passenger: If I may ask, how often have you visited Belair at ANR? Both before and after the bombings at BRU/Maalbeek? I used to be a very frequent visitor of theirs, and the difference, both in amount and “style” of clientele, was spectacular before and after. The restaurant owner is not lying, bef...

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2018

The single CRJ operating for SN seems to have flown on 24/11, and is still listed as scheduled on 25/11.
I don't think there will be any effects from the strike.

Re: BRU 21/11/2018

Not directly, but if you look at the flightpaths of inbound/outbound traffic, you can make a (very) educated guess at what configuration is in use. (not only for BRU, by the way.)

Re: BRU 21/11/2018

Runway in use and possible future runway selection can be found on www.batc.be
Don't take it as gospel, though, check other sources like Flightradar24 or the likes.
It also never hurts to take a look at the weather forecast, this will give a rather nice indication which runways to expect.

Re: The one and only topic on which runway in use @EBBR

Like I said, it happens.
And in that case, it wasn’t due to the previous arrival vacating too late or slowly.
