October is over and the end of year celebrations is slowly approaching. The weather was seasonal with a mixture of grey, fog and blue sky. The vegetation was dressed in its most beautiful colours only to lose all its beautiful leaves; it is beginning to feel like winter is approaching.
This will be the second series of end-of-year celebrations with a Covid flavour and an attack on individual freedoms. Yes, a third dose of anti-Covid test product is coming (you'll notice I'm not talking about a vaccine) and as if by chance, the infection figures are magically rising (isn't that wonderful?) and the threat is already being felt as to the validity of the CSE if the third dose is refused...how far will this mascarade go, I wonder...
I'm not going to get into a polemic here, but having to have a pass of some kind to be able to access one's work or favourite places to relax is an aberration when you remember (if you do...search your memories) that a few months ago you had free access. Whether you are for or against the "vaccine" is one thing, but accepting to be controlled and catalogued vaguely reminds me of certain pages of contemporary European history where in some sordid place the motto was: "Arbeit macht frei" (work makes you free).
So, when you are on your way to relax, don't forget to carry your ausweis...oops sorry, Covid Safe Ticket! The most aberrant thing in all this is that certain individuals advocating the duty to remember this dark era and who for some dress up as GI's (in their case, yes it's a disguise, I'm not talking about those who do it in real homage) sitting on one or another US vehicle, these same individuals claim to lock up the non-vaccinated without any resources until they obey (here we are...blind obedience). These people have probably not understood anything about the tragedies of the past and should rather wear a predominantly red armlet with a white circle and a small black geometric design... In its time, it was a rage!

In short, spotting and photography in the countryside is still a practicable and a tolerated recreation without this abominable and unspeakable QR code.
And so, here is the air traffic of Brussels Airport in October.

What should we remember about this month of October? Certainly the arrival of two new aircraft in the Belgian civil fleet, the first one was the Airbus A330-941 NEO of the company Air Belgium registrated OO-ABG and then the new Boeing B737-8 MAX in the colours of TUI registrated OO-TMZ.
For international commercial aviation, Italy is the place to be. Indeed, the legendary and loss-making national airline Alitalia is no more, one more, you might say, when we know that on November 7th we will mark the 20th anniversary of the disappearance of the Belgian national airline Sabena. Alitalia crashed and like a Phoenix, the company called ITA Airways (ITA= Italia Trasporto Aereo) was born from the ashes of Alitalia. ITA has its origins in Decree-Law No. 18/2020 (now Law No. 27/2020), which authorises the creation of a new company wholly owned by the Ministry of Economy and Finance (which was formally refused by the European Council for Sabena) to carry out commercial activities in the air transport sector of people and goods (sic).
Formally, the company was established under the name Italia Trasporti Aereo SpA (ITA) by an interministerial decree dated 9 October 2020, which established the statutes and appointed the directors. An initial allocation of 20 million in share capital was granted, rising to 700 million in July 2021. The entire fleet taken over from Alitalia will be repainted in the new ITA colours (which are reminiscent of those of the 'Squadra Azura'), but in the meantime, to mark this birth, the Airbus A320 EI-EIB bears the words 'Born in 2021'.
On the General Aviation side, there was a lot of traffic in Brussels and some interesting decorations such as the Pilatus PC-12 of Fly 7 Executive Aviation of Finland with its horse silhouettes due to the talent of Swiss painter Hans Erni.
The military aviation part was very busy in this month of October with a mixed EU/NATO summit, offering a well-fed ballet of military and governmental aircraft.
But if one military aircraft was to stand out, it would certainly be the Lockheed KC-130J of the 41 Transport Squadron of the Kuwait Air Force.
And once again, our good old 15th Wing was at work with its mixed and momentary C-130H - A400M fleet during this month of October with, in addition to the all-round training missions, the participation in an exercise at Pisa Airbase in Italy (Airlift Block Training) and this for the first time with two A400Ms.
This is a short summary, but the best thing is to discover the pictures of the flying machines of this month of October.
Have a good flight with SBAP!

After a failed sale attempt due to spare parts (hence the civil registration OO-PCF), the aircraft was sold to a junkyard who will dismantle the aircraft. The cockpit will be used for simulator spare parts, the cabin as exibition purpose, the wings will go to Italy as replacement parts; the same goes for the engines, but the final destination of these is not known. While it could have ended up in one of our museums... we are still and always in Belgium where avidity has replaced the preservation of historic heritage! These are now probably the last pictures of the entire plane...sad :-(
