American Vice-President's aircraft @ BRU

Post by petoetje59 » 07 Feb 2015, 15:31

Yesterday, Feb. 6, my PlanePlotter log showed that 3 out of 4 aircraft traditionally used by the American Vice-President as 'Air Force Two' were in Brussels :
Boeing VC-32A/757-2G4 (WL) '99-0004' with callsign 'SAM158', departed 10:48 local time.
Boeing VC-32A/757-2G4 '99-0003' with callsign 'SAM085', departed 19:29 local time.
Boeing VC-32A/757-2G4 '98-0001' with callsign 'SAM255', departed 19:35 local time.
Thus Joe Biden must have left Brussels on '99-0003' or '98-0001'.

99-0003 was the first to leave and the only one with big security around it ( cars next to it while taxiing till holding point 07L ) , so i go for SAM085.

It seems he was in Brussels already thursday evening, staying at "The Hotel", boulevard de Waterloo.

Hi

Indeed you are right.
I have been awaiting the 2 C-32's departure between 15-18hrs at the 07L holding point but no momevement in them unfortunatly, it was a wasted afternoon in the cold :D . There also was a C-17 right next to one of the C-32's, all parked on Melsbroek apron

Greets, Yannick
