BRU 13/06/07

Post by EHAM »

Armavia A319 EK32012 will make a visit to BRU today. A/C coming from AMS. Departure time ex AMS is 1100, so arrival at BRU will be around 1140. Arrival back at AMS from BRU will be 1655, so it will depart BRU around 1615.

Cathay Pacific has a 747F (in metal colours) on the ground at BRU.

Interestingly the aircraft has been pulled into one of the SN Technics hangars in between Abelag and EAT.
The aircraft can pretty much enter the hangar, except for the tail part.

Already for a few days the HewaBora and a World Dc10 are parked outside Lufthansa Technics. Anyone who knows why?

It is quite a funny sight, to see a tail coming out of the hangar.

The 767 for JAF was nothing more than a Martinair. MP is doing the long-haul flights for Thomas Cook, and now also for JAF. Even the pilot was not familiar with it and kept saying "Martinair 303" iso "Beauty 303" :lol:

PH-MCG is seen here climbing as JAF303

Hey guys ,

No one has taken a picture of the OO-TMG (piper archer of Bafa) crossing the 25L or 25R?
We had one of the few lucky moments to get a clearance to cross EBBR via the published VFR route, really great. We crossed the 25L axis just after a landing A319 of lufthansa.
Regards

Bram

What a gorgeous aircraft indeed :

It's the third different E-4B at BRU in the past 12 months, and USAF has only 4 ! Very very nice !

Anyone any idea when the E-4B will take off again?

FYI: apparently this beautiful aircraft had Rumsfelt on board for the NATO-meeting.

Was the Martinair flying instead of the OO-TUC, or was it an extra flight.
Where did it fly to?

Hello

Ah , so there actually is a NATO top again at BRU... darn, why is it always during the exam period :evil:

I saw the C-130J30 from the KLu passing over very low over the house here, and it made a 360...guess he lost the way to EBBR :D

Nice pictures by the way :D


Best regards: Yannick ;)

That strange bump contains the aircraft's super high frequency (SHF) satellite antenna.

I'm not sure if this plane has rocket launchers :wink: , but it definitely has missile avoidance systems and other systems to avoid any attack. The plane is also capable of surviving and EMP (ElectroMagnetic Pulse)
