In Belgian politics, we like to give coalitions names. It doesn't bring anything more to the level of the management of the country, but it amuses the political class. So we too wanted to give a little name to Brussels Airport to describe the month of February. We opted for "Vivaldi". And yes, the month of February offered us the four seasons in 28 days of time; from autumn fog to winter snowfall, from spring rains to brilliant summer sunshine. A month that went from -10° Celsius to +17° Celsius on sunny days.
But le uss come back to the focus of our readers' interest, the aerial movements of this short month, which was in fact a busy one.
It is of course the cargo traffic which took the share of the market with the transport of vaccines, allowing us to see some rather rare companies at Brussels.
It was also the month of the delivery of the first two Airbus A330 cargo aircraft intended for Air Belgium, which arrived from Doha and then headed for Ireland, where they will receive their new paint schelme.

On the business jet side, all is flying high!

The month of February was quite rich on the military traffic side as well, with, of course, the C-130H and A400M of the Air Force offering some nice photographic opportunities.
We also saw some European visitors, usually coming to Brussels to bring the European decision makers to the meetings. They are somehow "non-homeworking" as opposed to ordinary citizens.

Finally, some rarer military movements from Niger, Algeria, Finland, Ireland and Ukraine, not forgetting a visitor from the US Navy, but unfortunately all dressed up in white.

To sum up, it was an interesting month both in terms of weather and air movements and in this period of "lean cows" due to the pandemic, these few shots are appreciable for the morale of the troops and the readers.
Without further ado, here is the photo summary of this second month of the year 2021.

To all our readers, enjoy and stay safe !
