AN-22 ADB ETA 16.00 ETD Tonight. (with broken AN-124 Engine)
If you do copy information from another site, please do it right. You post at 16:43 that at 16:00h the An-22 is expected. If you would have read the info a bit more thorough, you would have seen that it was 16:00Z, which is 17:00 Local time.
Please also note the use of abbreviations. 'eta' stands for 'estimated time of arrival'. In this case, it was a scheduled time. The correct abbreviation for this is 'sta'. An eta is known when the plane is flying and expected at the destination, taking into account the weather conditions and airspeed.
The abuse of this abbreviations is very frustration for spotters looking for correct and accurate information.
According to my info, the An-22 has not yet departed at Gostomel at this very moment. Thus it is impossible to have an eta. The departure is scheduled for March 30.

Greetings,
Rutger

Maybe someone can give us an update of the Russuian An-30 that should be flying today, and make a stop at Volkel at 17:00 local.
Is it airborne already, or is an STD/ETD known?

To get back to topic:
Is the An-30 staying at Brussels tonight? And if so, is it parked at Abelag, or the mil platform? I will pass Brussels late tonight/early in the morning, so would love to see it!
Cheers,

And en route another AN124 as ADB106F, eta 01:50 on 29/03.

This means we'll have a line-up of two AN124's, an AN22 and an AN30 at Melsbroek tonight.
