Re: Solar Impulse to fly US coast-to-coast in 2013

hmmmpppffff As regards Dutch grammar, it is either "je/jij slaat" or "gij/ge slaagt", or so I was taught at school. But that's a long time ago, admittedly, perhaps they changed it since. Can't see any good reason, though. jij slaat = you hit something/someone gij slaagt = you succeed in doing somet...

Re: "Brussels Airlines new US destination"-poll (after JFK)

I voted for Boston, seemingly the most popular choice. Personally i would also take a long look at Atlanta. I know, the Delta dominance at ATL is daunting, but it seems a bit underserved by Star Alliance carriers (from the top of my head, i think only LH offers transantlantic flights there...) Might...

A group of african-americans o...

Re: How did your passion start?

I can pinpoint the start of my passion for planes and flying to one precise moment. I must have been around 5 or 6 years old when my mom and dad took me to the airport at Ostend, which at that time had an open air terrace. there was only one airplane present near the terminal, but what a beauty she ...

Re: Live flight tracking

Since a few days Casper doesn't show historical data more than two hours old anymore, unless you register and pay a membership fee.
Doe anybody know a site where it is possible to get historical flight data ?

Come fly with me : hilarious

Next saturday (New years day) on BBC 1 at 9pm (10pm in western Europe) : the second episode of 'Come Fly With Me', a hilarious parody of the 'Airport' series. (or for those in Flanders : 'Het leven zoals het is : luchthaven') I saw the first episode and i loved it. It's done by the 'Little Britain' ...
