Brussels Airport in September

The weather level in September was generally better than August with significantly more days offering summery weather and skies.

On the civil aviation side, the movements were mainly regular flights and some late season charters. A few special aircraft landed on the runways of Brussels Airport such as a BBJ Boeing Business Jet, a plane flying in the colours of the online retailer Amazon, a Dreamliner flying in the colours of the Vietnamese national airline during the visit of the Vietnam National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue on 08 and 09 September. Or a Boeing Business Jet registered in the United Arab Emirates transporting the President of the Democratic Republic of Congo Mr Félix Tshisekedi from JFK New York to Baden-Baden via Brussels between 24 and 26 September.

Finally the military or governmental planes were photographed the most this time.
It started with the return of CH-07 and CH-11 C-130H Hercules on 4 September after their missions between Islamabad and Kabul as part of the "Red Kite" operation.
We also note the return of the Falcon 7X OO-LUM at the beginning of September after its passage in the paint shops in Lelystad. This aircraft is now wearing the same white VIP livery as OO-FAE, meaning that the Dassault-style Business Jet livery is gone.
A DHC-8 passed through on 13 September, all in white and bearing the United Nations markings.
On 17 September, one of the Airbus A330 MRTT landed at Brussels Airport for the family day organized by the 15th Wing.
This event took place on 18 September and saw intense activity of Falcon 7X (OO-FAE), C-130h (CH-01) and A400M (CT-01) performing local flights for military families. It was also the occasion for the Federal Police air support to do some demonstrations with their MD-902 (G-11 & G-17). In addition to this event, the 18th September also saw the passage through Brussels Airport of US Army helicopters coming from England to refuel before returning to their base in Wiesbaden. It is quite rare to have a formation of Blackhawks, Apache and Chinooks in Brussels, so this was a great opportunity to capture them.
On 20 September, the Airbus A330 MRTT T-057 returned to its airbase at Eindhoven and on 21 September, we had the visit of a Let 410 from the Czech Republic.
On the 22nd and 24th of September, an Airbus A330 wearing the markings of the French Republic belonging to the 'Esterelle' Squadron flew from the military base in Melsbroek.
And then of course on 23 September the Airbus A400M CT-04 (MSN 114) was delivered, Belgium reaching half of its Atlas fleet by now. CT-04 flew her first missions on 27 September with a training flight in the morning including touch and goes at Beauvechain airbase and in the afternoon a first international flight to Orléan-Bricy airbase to perform some landing circuits.
Also on September 27, a Eurocopter EC-225 LP Super Puma of the GAM 00.056 "Vaucluse" squadron from the BA105 at Evreux-Fauville passed by the Melsbroek military base.
And of course not to forget all the flights and regular missions devolved to the 15th Wing offering the monthly ballet of Falcons, Hercules and Atlas...That's all folks !
