Maybe giving Asiana the final push towards a direct ICN-BRU?

Back in 2017, during a mission of princess Astrid to South-Korea, Toerisme Vlaanderen already anounced the start of negociations between BRU and Asiana about a potential direct route.

It's true that using the A340 with the Belgian flag colours would be a nice sight.
Hi-Fly could have subleased the Air Belgium aircraft...
Is the Hi-Fly A330 with the Belgian Defence livery not in service anymore? Or was that aircraft repainted since then?
Regards,

Duke

No need to be a detective to know it was CS-TQY, without any BAF callsign but was on Flightradar24...

Belgium will invest in a A330 MRTT. But it will be part of a NATO fleet based in Eindhoven and I'm not even sure it will have 'Belgian Air Force' titles...

However, in a recent speech of air force general Vansina, he mentioned the following:
"Looking into the not too distant future, our Air Force will comprise 2W and 10W flying the state-of-the-art F-35 Lightning II, 15W flying the impressive A-400M Atlas and hopefully the Long Range Jet and 1W flying the high-tech NH-90 Cayman helicopters."

The "State-of-the-art" F-35 is unfit for the missions for which it was acquired, according to a report released in Washington two days ago!
