The year 2020 is slowly approaching the end, a catastrophic year for aviation enthusiasts. The promising airshow season ended before it had even started, thanks to a first wave of a virus from distant parts of China. After a strongly criticized lockdown, the authorities cleared the way to soften the measures, to let the people go abroad and find the beaches and the sun (while here we had more than superb weather ...), to satisfy the selfish ones and refill the pockets with money. As a result, we are looking into a second Covid-19 wave, most probably worse than the first, but which both, the political and scientific world, believe is contradicting itself on all sides.
Still, at the airshow level, the 2021 season is looking very bad with already cancellation announcements for 2021.
In short, aeronautical shows and other major events have been reduced to the strict minimum and the SBAP team, in addition to the coverage of major news events, continues to focus on air traffic in Brussels. We will present a monthly page with some capture of aircraft and it is not excluded that by the end of the year, we will see an upsurge in special flights linked to the pandemic wave 2 Chinese bad movie named Covid: The return...
Go for the month of September, which brought some planes rarely seen at Brussels Airport, but to a lesser extent than during the first wave.
Let's not sulk one of the pleasures that remain for enthusiasts and let's see what the future will bring us.
