For the spotters or registration hunters, it's not the same aircraft as in 2005 when Bush visited Belgium.
Then it was 82-8000, now it is 92-9000

I think it is pointing East.

The helicopters for the flight to the cemetry are all parked up at Melsbrook..EBMB.
There are lots of barriers and police in that area, I would avoid Haachtsestenweeg, and perhaps the E19 to the ring..

Only one Marine One: the helicopter in which the President travels. The other is just a Sea King, or VH-3, or Sikorsky S-61, or whatever you like to call it. But Marine One and Air Force One are reserved for flights in which the President is actually on board.

To South-East. Just behind AF1 is also a B757 I guess from the US GOV with nose in the same direction. Saw also a few spotters taking pictures near Abelag but under control of the police.

BTW I spent 1h travelling from Perk to APT as Haachtesteenweg was closed for Obama. :evil:
