Re: Chisinau (LUKK/KIV) 2019 MIL

It was at Brussels Melsbroek on Saturday August 3rd.
Too far (from the Passengers terminal where I stood) to identify it precisely. At the moment and from the distance, I thought that the flag on the tail was a Belgian one. I understand now why I was unable to find which "Belgian C-560" this was. :P

Re: Brussels - 21-07-19

The second rehearsal took place this afternoon. I went to Poelaertplein, in front of the Court of Justice's building. Good place indeed but you'll need a good lens (Mine - 18-270 mm - was useless). A good option, as experienced by a friend, is avenue Marnix (corner rue du Trône), in front of ING bui...

Brussels - 21-07-19

At around 4:15 PM, rehearsal for the National Day in Belgium took place over Brussels.
The fly-by should be opened by Spitfire XVI "OO-XVI" flanked by F-16s.
For the rest, no more Alpha-Jets, nor Sea Kings... :roll:
Embraer 120 (French air force) and the rest as usual.
