by L@urent on oct.04, 2010, under Aviation photo trips @, BRU - Brussels IAP, Belgium

Hello !

After some very bad weather it was unread to have good forecast for this sunday ! Indeed, sun was shining, and the afternoon was blessed with ASEM8 summit arrivals … too bad these two events were not synchronised.

Here is a quick log of the day (only items of interest) ;
V8-ALI B747-400 Brunei Government (arrived at 06:00 am)
G-MEDJ A321 BMI (nice upgrade !)
9A-CQF Dash8 Croatia

Early evening, the two JASDF 747 and an Australian BBJ were expected.
Monday morning, Air China B-2472, Vietnam Airlines B772 and a chinese B737 were expected. Russia sent an Il62 amongst lot’s of european VIPs.

Quite a surprise when arriving at the airport in the morning ; Runway 25R was reported as main arrival runway. When approaching the runway, an aircraft landed on 25L and a few minutes later, runwap procedure changed to runway 20 (photo point described via the main menu). Regarding the arrival of special aircraft, this was the worst runway for arrivals. However, we have to deal with, and we enjoyed this very special day !

LIL 25/09/10 ; upgrade on the Air Algérie flight

by L@urent on sept.29, 2010, under Aviation photo trips @, LIL - Lille Lesquin, France

Hello !

Nice upgrade on the DAH1048 flight ! Today, the Hi Fly leased A340-300 is scheduled two hours late.

Amazing to see this big aircraft parked on the terminal !
The aircraft was unloaded with some AKE containers. This can explain why it visited LIL today instead of the more usual 737s … Or maybe this is due to the recent strike, and a higher passenger load …

Also of interest ;
I-DAVJ MD80 ItalI a/w operated for Cityline Hungary (rugby charter flight)

LIL 18/09/10 ; the quest for the “plane of the year” at LIL !!!

by L@urent on sept.23, 2010, under Aviation photo trips @, LIL - Lille Lesquin, France

Hello all,

When reading the airport’s website i noticed the departure of the second Windrose Embraer at 14:00 (on the departure list)
Needless to say, it took me very little time to jump in the car tio reach LIL. There were very little moves around the aircraft event at 14:00. Then things were quite quick … pilots dropped by a car, stairs removed, engines fired up and 7 minutes later, the aircraft was on the 26 barrier, opposite to it’s maintenance parking.

If you know a bit the airport layout at LIL, you know that when runway 26 is in use, aircraft may (or won’t) taxi to the far end of the runway, and at that place you can photograph both side of the aircraft from a close location.
This aircraft was too important to gamble on the 26 backtrack ! … and you probably guess it did backtrack ! Too bad …
I preferred to have a little walk in the fields to try to locate a good place to photograph it … as you have seen, i was fortunate to find the best place !

Also of interest is DAH1048 operated by TC-SGH B737-800 of Saga Airlines ! Great, one of the two summer leased airframe i need ! Next, the Calima 737 would be nice soon … ;-)

Well, what a day at this little airport !

by L@urent on sept.23, 2010, under Aviation photo trips @, FRA - Frankfurt, Germany

Hello All,

Here is a log covering two days spent at FRA during Easter Hollidays with fellow spotter Philippe D.
All in all, very interesting stay, however, some nice aircraft escaped on the second (and further) runway. However, saturday and sunday seems to provide a more interesting mix of aircraft (both civ and cargo).
We spent the night at the nearby IBIS and except the warm room, everything was fine ; god food, good sleep, only a few kilometers from the airport …

First, the non german stuff, then the D- reg airctaft …

BRU 16/06/10 ; Runway 02 procedure and long summer sunny day … Great !

by L@urent on juil.14, 2010, under Brussels IAP, Belgium, Spotting Informations @

A long summer day blessed with RWY02 configuration is rare and a great event for photographers ! You can take pictures all day long except from 12:00 to 16:00, allowing to photogrape the morning rush and evening rush.

The big surprise was the arrival of EU meeting in the afternoon/evening !

BRU 09/03/10

by L@urent on juin.20, 2010, under BRU - Brussels IAP, Belgium

A visit to BRU with a runway 02 in use at that period of year is not a great news but allows to catch departing traffic on runway 07L (at the sand mounds). Unfortunately, despite the low temperature and the strong sun, i was trapped with heatwaves on half of my pictures … But fortunately enough, the few highlights were okay.

Back on the blog ; it’s time for some updates

by L@urent on avr.25, 2010, under Aviation photo trips @

Hello !

  After a (forced) break due to a very cold and long winter, a period of vacations allowed me to do few pictures … LIL, FRA, CDG, and AMS were visited in about 10 days. Two weeks (and an ash cloud) later, another great day at CDG. So, stay tuned for some fresh picts and nice items …
