Re: Overfly Brussels National Holiday 21/07/2020

Today, around 2 PM, an F-16 flew low over downtown Brussels.
I am not sure that it was related to this rehearsals, as the direction (South -> North) was not the usual one for such event's preparation (West -> east). The jet's speed also looked much higher then during National Day's défilé.

Moldova shuts down clandestine helicopters factory

False Rolex watches, false Vuiton handbags, even false car parts or copies of Kalashnikov guns, everybody knew.
But false Kamov Ka-26 helicopters, I never thought it could be...

Ramstein 26-03-20

Culfstream N163PA just left around 9 AM and now flying westwards.
It is a US Gov plane with medical configuration if I don't misunderstand.
Probably related to current sanitary situation.
