Does anyone have more information on the timing of the flypast in Brussels? Also any information on a good place to photograph the actual flypast?

Thanks in advance!

The flypast was noted over Brussels around 14.00 local. Unfortunately weather conditions were very poor at that moment.

Hi Laurent,

Can you please tell us more about the flightpath the formation took to reach the Nato building (spefically over the Brussels area)?

Also anyone that has suggestions on where to stand tomorrow to be able to photograph the flypast properly (keeping in mind all road closures and exclusion zones)?

Many thanks in advance.

NAVO Flypast Tomorrow @ 13:50hr LT

Post by downwind »

Van de VRT vandaag: "Een vijftiental helikopters vloog dinsdag in een grote boog over Brussel. Het gaat om een proefrondje voor het helikopterdéfilé ter gelegenheid van de Navo-top. Tijdens de Fly past, die om 13.50 u. geprogrammeerd staat, worden de verschillende toestellen getoond worden die de bontgenoten gebruiken. Aan de luchtshow nemen ook Belgische Agusta-helikopters deel."

Afijn, tijdstip bevestigd, ik gok op Bevekom voor de beste foto's.

A little correction:a British Lynx has to be a UK Wildcat.

Yesterday there were two UK Wildcats at Beauvechain.
