So Zeebrugge is probably bot the best place to go ;-)

Chievres is is the better option, i guess.

According to the Port of Zeebrugge website (https://www.portofzeebrugge.be/nl/arriv ... ble?page=2) Endurance will arrive saturday morning:

AANKOMST DATUM / TIJD
26/01/2019 - 04:00
VERTREK DATUM / TIJD
29/01/2019 - 22:00
SCHIP NAAM
ENDURANCE
LOCATIE
531
LLOYDS TYPE:



I guess the site of the Port itself is more reliable then a shiptracker? Btw: Endurance is ‘out of range’ when you want to see it on the map.

A week? Why should they park 80 choppers in a harbour for a week?

Looking at the limited opening hrs of the NOTAM, Chievres will will likely receive a small flock on Sunday. Estimating, pending weather conditions, monday and Tuesday will be the major arrival days.

Talking about the 29th......

According to an article on Stars & Stripes, that is published today, the USArE and the 21st Theater Sustainment Command said in a statment today that "the equipment, including Black Hawk and Chinook helicopters, is scheduled to arrive Tuesday in Zeebrugge".

That is the 29th. Probably Le Soir took the date from that statement. But the choppers are already there. So that date is incorrect.
