July, ahhhh the summer holidays...not to be missed! Well yes, that's how it is, the world doesn't stand still and it's necessary to go abroad to see if the Covid is nicer there and then spend a lot of money to be able to put on social media where they are, for how long, what they are doing etc... (notice to the burglars! ) and then come back after one or two weeks and complain because the hotel bed was too hard, the food not good, lots of kids shouting everywhere, the non-Belgians were really shameless, the hotel service below par, the staff not nice, noise at night because you could hear the disco and the drunkards etc... (This is not a fiction, really heard). So to be able to take all these people mainly to the sun and to the south, planes were needed and it's not finished yet. Those of July are coming back and those of August are leaving. And you're going to tell me that all this beautiful world was duly controlled from the sanitary point of view on the return... ? Well no, and they brag about it on the social networks, ah but I forgot, they are all vaccinated people who are not afraid of anything anymore, except the proximity of non-vaccinated people, those unconscious people who are almost serial killers! The world is stupid and will never change,. The elected politicians know it and take advantage of this credulity to foment a start of civil war, because what you hear in the media from our politicians is pure propaganda. History is an eternal restart and if you think about it, it is not the dinosaurs that should have disappeared from the earth. So much for the mood of the month.

So let's get back to the air travelling of vacationers from Brussels. This trend has of course brought its share of charter flights with aircraft that are unusual in the region, there is no need to list them here, as the pictures speak for themselves. However, we had to notice an increase in flights from and to North Africa with Tunisair, with the A330 instead of the usual A320 ; companies coming back on the scene such as Novelair or Air Arabia and then an incredible multiplication of Royal Air Maroc flights (He who 2000 years ago multiplied the loaves of bread would be jealous of this) requiring the company to rent additional planes as you will see in the pictures. Another destination that has seen a multiplication of flights is Turkey, with the usual companies of course and the return to Belgium of Corendon.
Spain is not to be outdone either, with some regular Iberia flights operated by A330's instead of the usual A320 family aircraft. On the other hand, Brussels Airlines has not been idle and to secure its share of the market, it has brought out some aircraft that were in storage.
So much for passenger transport, now, concerning cargo flights, they are still very present with regular rotations of aircraft that we already had the opportunity to immortalize. Business jet traffic is slightly down, the holiday period being the most likely cause of this significant decrease.
And then there is the military traffic at Melsbroek airbase which was not as intense as in June with the visit of the US Presidency. However, our 15th Wing flew well during the month of July and it was an opportunity to see the A400M and C-130H in all kinds of weather, from hot sun to summer storms.
Another highlight of the 15th Wing's activity was the National Day fly-past on 21 July. In addition to the black, yellow and red roundels, the Wing once again welcomed a C-130H from the KLU for days of operations from Melsbroek.
Besides the military or governmental aircraft usually seen at EU or NATO summits, some rarer aircraft landed on the runways of Brussels Airport. Starting with a Casa C-295M of the Algerian Air Force, two Let 410 of the Slovenian Air Force and the Czech Republic respectively, a C-130J of the Tunisian Air Force (more on that later...) and finally a Boeing 747 (BBJ) in Qatar Airways colours. Qatar Airways is not a military company... Right, but the plane in question, despite its civilian paint job (see the C-17A of the same company), is in fact operated by Qatar Amiri Flight, meaning the Qatar Government, and only transports the Qatari Royal family or high governmental authorities. In one word, an unusual aircraft only visiting Brussels for a couple of hours.
As mentioned above, let's go back to the famous C-130J of the Tunisian Air Force which had flown to Brussels (and Paris a few days before) to pick up medical supplies and vaccines for the Tunisian population which is in a very nasty and red Covid phase!
Do read again the beginning of this report concerning the recrudescence of charter flights and passengers from and to North Africa, among others Tunisia... look for the error!

I will not put my conclusion and my feelings here; I prefer to leave you sole judge of this situation. So yes, as things are going, we are not at the end of this pandemic, which probably suits some people, pharmaceutical groups in the lead. This health crisis is a godsend for some and it is obvious that it must continue... Who benefits from the crime?
The only thing I can say to our faithful readers is take care of your selves and don't fall into the easy traps that only serve the purpose to divide and conquer…Divide et Impera as Roman said!
