Assuming RWY22L is in use, and not 04R 😉

Yes, wind forecast for 27/02/2018 is still NE/NNE 12/15 kts on the ground, 20 kts on approch. So 04R.

Hi,

Is it actually sure there is no painting on the bird so far? Because no doubt they will also realise it will be the first public appearance of an Air Belgium aircraft, question is wetter they really want to be seen as 'all white' already or make it a big public display of the aircraft in full colours even before the airline started, would be a good PR stunt.

If not ... I wonder if these planes will ever GET painted in time because fully painting a A340 is not something done over night. With only weeks to go untill the official launch of flights I would say it is already TOO late if they didn't aleady paint the planes when they have to wait after crew trainings, tech enregistration, press conferences... hence ... they will keep flying all white for months to go throughout the operations untill the later aircraft in the fleet arrive...

Anyone knows for sure in fact?

Grts,

Bart DC, a pilot and a former colleague, just responded on Facebook that the training flights have been suspended as Air Belgium is awaiting BCAA technical release.
