Hehehe...in the month of April don't get your hopes up...the adage was true with a variation between winter and summer weather. This offered azure blue skies or a depressing background of greyness.
But Brussels Airport's traffic continued, oh not the traffic of the good Covid -2 or -3 years, but still some interesting things as you will see.
Indeed, the Covid, and its variants, offered us some very particular visitors.
Ah yes ... the Covid and its super vaccines created in two blows as one says... High caliber researchers who created vaccines in a few months, whereas the cancer makes devastation since decades, no miracle solution found yet and which calls each year for donations of all kinds (Televie, Levenslijn...) For God's sake... open your eyes!
I won't say more, but I don't think less. In short, to make it pretty at the Coronna-el-virus level, we are now entitled to the Indian variant, special Madras curry (sensitive palate beware...) or the superb Brazilian variant, the one with fresh cream and small crushed hazelnuts (a killer... it's the case to say it). Oh yes, I almost forgot, the Breton variant with its typical little Breton Cornette... Well yes, unless I'm mistaken, we are still being taken for penguins (Hey... when will the Eskimo variant be available?). In short, all this takes us away from our exciting world of aviation, but it had to be said, I think.
Moving on to this month's analysis, business jet flights are doing well... In a word, it's not stopping (no Covid restrictions in this world?).
Then, on the passenger side, the traffic remained equivalent to the months of the beginning of the year (No Moroccan flights, but Tunisian, Turkish etc). But ohhhhh great news, people will be able to go on holiday in the sun and bring back some other variants that are missing in our collection, yessss!
So, on cargo flights side, there was a lot of traffic from or to Asia, even Japan Airlines (JAL) has started cargo flights in parallel with All Nippon Airways (ANA). The Chinese have come but more sporadically (they have everything at home...the virus and the antidote!). The Atlantic is also a busy route to Brussels. And then, there is the Brazilian company Azul which also made some flights from "the sugar loaf" to the capital of this Europe which makes so many jealous (Gentlemen, as far as I'm concerned, you may have this kind of Europe)... So, it was not a common company and interesting to catch of course.
April was also the month when the third Air Belgium Cargo plane passed through Brussels before heading for Dublin to be painted and then back to Brussels for couple of adaptations before returning to Ličge-Bierset airport a few days later to be put on line.
In short, cargo is moving, flying and still making money.
On the military side, it was obviously an USAF festival with the arrival of the US Minister of Defence with his E-4B accompanied by a C-32 and a trio of C-17's. But wait and see for the month of June, with the visit of the American President Joe Biden, which opportunities there will be.
Then, apart from some more common military movements, it was the 15th Wing that flew quite a lot with its five remaining C-130H's; the three A400M's and the two Falcon 7X's. But April was also the month of the last flight of the CH-13 (the ugly duckling of the fleet) which made a last presentation at Ursel Flash & Go event (which we will talk about in another page) on April 25 and which took off for the last time on April 26 from Melsbroek / Brussels Airport to its final resting place in Beauvechain (EBBE).
Ah the CH-13 and the controversy around it. Another Belgian story that turns into a community and linguistic pugilism. Sad Belgium, sad country, sad mentality... that's all I have to say... Here, just for information, my best friend is Dutch-speaking, I'm French-speaking... but the paradox is that we are both Belgian and proud of it!
And as long as the people react like this on a problem of language, of linguistic border or simply of so called difference of culture, our leaders will take advantage of it to continue to blind us, to blind you. Think about it and in the meantime, SBAP invites you to admire the flying machines that you love so much. Ready? So have a good flight... And take care of yourself, wear your mask.

JOINT BASE CHARLESTON April 9th, 2021
The C-17A Globemaster III 10-00223 transport plane from 437th Airlift Wing caught fire Friday at Joint Base Charleston after returning from an overseas mission (EBBR - EGUN - KCHS) (Brussels Airport - RAF station Mildnhall - Cherleston AFB) 
The plane was grounded and parked at the time, and base safety personnel quickly extinguished the fire. Seven crew members and one passenger were still aboard the plane when the fire ignited but no significant injuries were reported at the time.
A witness of the incident speculated the fire started in the plane's landing gear. 
The official cause of the incident remains under investigation.
