It was not yet picked up because we were unaware of this. But our article is available now:

Is an airport on the sea shore the best place to store aircraft ? It's usually done in desert or at least in a very dry enviromnent !

I was also wondering. We still remember the brand new NH-90 helicopters of the Belgian Air Force suffering corrosion problems at their homebase Koksijde.

Yet again if its not BRU, LGG or CRL the guys of Aviation 24 don't care:

Mr Buelens gave a hint last week, but aviation24 crew didn't go for a full force in picking up his comment and tried to find out who was "the new kid on the block" starting last Sunday on EBOS.

Now which are the owned 4 747's of the Hong Yuan group? At the moment they are using 747's from other companies...
No more space at LGG???

We do care if we have the information, but personally I don't have a subscription to HLN. Thanks for bringing the information to our attention ;)

Edit: the first flight was mentioned in the OST 09/08/2020 spotters' forum:

Good news for Ostend airport, the much needed warehouses are on their way.
The Versluys group(*) has signed a agreement with the airport to build 45000 square meters of new buildings.

(*) The Versluys group is one of the biggest real estate groups at the Belgian coast. Its owned by Bart Versluys and Marc Coucke.

a Canadian cargo airline is negociating to have a hub at EBOS for its European operations.
A Icelandic group is also involved in this.
