How would you describe the month of October at Brussels Airport? I know! A good novel: Fifty shades of grey ! These were indeed the main shades of colour in the capital's sky in this autumn month, which nevertheless offered magnificent autumn colours in terms of vegetation. However, there were a few small exceptions thanks to the timid appearance of the sun here and there, sometimes offering pictures with interesting contrasts.
But the month of October was more than certainly the one that put forward the giant "Atlas". You will have understood it, it was the long-awaited arrival of the first A400M, 19 years after the signature of the initial purchase contract and certainly the highlight of this month of October. You can find our full article, following the link:
A400M is there!
In addition, a second aircraft, chartered by Airbus Defense and Space, was detached from 08 to 23 October at the Melsbroek military base to provide training for the various types of airdrops and this, daily, overhead the Leopoldsburg maneuvering area in the Limburg province.
It was a ballet of two giants for almost two weeks and what's more, the CT-01, wearing the colours of Luxembourg, carried out two training flights, almost every day, including approaches to different airports or military bases such as Ličge Airport, Florennes Airbase, Luxembourg Findel, Oostende Airport, Beauvechain Airbase and Eindhoven Airport.
These intensive training flights made it possible to capture the newcomer in the greyish, rainy weather, sometimes even with a few warm rays of sunshine.
October was also the month of the European Union summits, no less than two over a period of two weeks, bringing its share of government aircraft to Brussels.
And finally, this autumn month was also the one that brought some nice surprises, planes that are quite rarely seen on the runways at Brussels Airport and we were able to immortalize them for the pleasure of the eyes and the digital sensors.
Have a good flight and see you at Brussels Airport in November.
