The month of August is now over and here is a little report from Brussels Airport. First of all, the sky was not brilliant, to say the least, with a majority of grey, cold and sometimes rainy days. A plane with blue sky in August 2021 is a real chance.
Let's see the passenger traffic which remained very similar to July with regular or charter flights mainly to the Maghreb, Turkey and Spain offering the possibility to photograph quite a few "white goodies" leased to Royal Air Maroc or Corendon Airlines.
Not many big surprises, except for some more colourful aircraft or those with special logos.
As for cargo flights, August is also in the average of July, no big surprises but still interesting planes.
The business side of the market is working, and there were many business aircraft in Brussels in August.
On the military aviation side, everyone was on holiday and so the foreign visits were also "on standby". A C-27J from Romania and the traffic of the 15th Wing are to be noted.
Finally, the month of August took another turn with the launch of Operation Red Kite, which was set up to ensure repatriations from Afghanistan following the departure of the Armed Forces and the capture of the capital Kabul by the Taliban.

Operation Red Kite

On 20 August, Defence took part in evacuation operations in Afghanistan.
Defence had set up an air bridge with 2 C-130H's between Kabul and Islamabad in Pakistan. Then the repatriations were carried out with military and civilian flights. These evacuation flights were carried out in cooperation with neighbouring countries such as the Netherlands and France.
