Well, the last month of this wonderful year 2021 has passed. We are now entering 2022, which will be an even better year if I believe what is happening and what is being said...
Let's not forget that this New Year can also be written "Twenty Twenty...too", aie aie aie...
But everyone is happy, freedoms are dissipating, you have to show your pass for everything and for nothing, and everyone is even happier...
But let's leave the sarcasm aside and let's deal with this aeronautical month of December, which offered a lot of interesting things at Brussels Airport. However, the weather was more than capricious, with rain, sun, sleet and especially fog. Without question, the worst weather day was undoubtedly the 17th of December, the official day of the farewell of the C-130H of the Belgian Air Force, where fog was present all day long, making the planned missions impossible and bringing many disappointments for the press photographers and other paying spotters who were legitimately thinking of immortalizing this event in a festive and grand way.
Alas, the weather god remains unmanageable and even Codeco is of no use here, as in other areas...Sad, really sad!
Now let's talk about all those visitors who put their wheels on the runways of our national airport.
Starting with commercial aviation, where we can mention the return of Ryanair's Boeing B737-800 MAX to the circuit, or a whole series of flights from China by the company Tianjin.
Then, it is to be noted that the Belgian Defence has chartered quite a few civil aircraft for military transport purposes, such as an A330 from Wamos Air (Spain), an A220 Air Baltic (Lithuania), a Dornier 328 Jet British Airway (United Kingdom) or an A330 from Air Tanker (United Kingdom).
December also saw the visit of two Illyushin Il-76s belonging to Skyways and Volga Dnepr. There was also a pair of flights to Brussels by Skyalps operating Dash-8's. Iberia visited Brussels Airport with an A330 again in Level's colours.
On the novelty side, it was the first visit of an Airbus of ITA Airways, the first to wear the new livery of the company for which we can say that we are far from the colours of the late Alitalia!
In the Belgian register, let's note that no less than five aircraft of Brussels Airlines are already wearing the new livery, namely in order of arrival, the OO-SSO, OO-SSS, OO-SSU, OO-SSV and OO-SNI.
For Air Belgium it was the month of the delivery of the second A330-941 NEO registered OO-ABF, which unfortunately arrived after sunset around 20:30 which in wintertime is not great for pictures.
After the civil register, let's move on to the ballet of the European elected officials with, among other things, a summit meeting bringing the traditional governmental aircraft, but also a number of new or exotic machines.
On the new side, the first visit to Brussels of the new Falcon 7X of the Hellenic Air Force. It should be noted that this European meeting had a particular connotation following the "pressing invitation" of Minister Michel who ordered a visit of the leaders of Azerbaijan, Armenia and Ukraine. The first two, to align them with a recent border conflict with casualties among the troops involved and the last one concerning the latent tensions between Ukraine and Vladimir Putin's Russia. So we saw the very rare A340-600 of the President of Azerbaijan, Mr Ilham Aliyev, the A319 carrying Mr Nikol Pachinian, Prime Minister of the Armenian Government and the Antonov A-148 of Mr Volodymyr Zelensky, President of Ukraine. In short, some important people in the capital of Europe.
We still have the overview of the military aircraft that came to Brussels, starting with an A340 of the Luftwaffe, which is relatively rare on Brussels runways. Also to mention is the visit of a Falcon 7X of the Royal Australian Air Force (a different registration than the two previous visits).
The rarest of all the military events in December was undoubtedly the double visit of an Antonov An-30 of the Romanian Air Force, which came to carry out reconnaissance missions under the "Open Skies" agreements. We want more of this!
And finally, December was the time to say goodbye to the good old Hercules with its black, yellow and red roundels...

All this to say that this event, which despite the bad weather, brought to Melsbroek some foreign visitors, namely a C-130J of the USAFE, another C-130J of the Aeronautica Militare Italiana, a C-130E of the Polish Air Force and finally a flypast of a Royal Air Force C-130J. What can we say about the ending of an era, except for "Goodbye Gentle Giant" many of the Air Force lovers will miss you...

So the last month of the year is over, we have passed the threshold of the New Year. It remains for all the editors and reporters of the team to wish an excellent year 2022 to all our readers, that happiness, joy and especially health can accompany them throughout this New Year.
