De nouvelles images sont en ligne : Fête(s) nationale(s)

Forwarded message From: LUC DUJARDIN - PHOTOGRAPHIES



Bonjour à toutes et tous,

De nouvelles images sont en ligne sur mon site.
Il s'agit de montrer quelques-uns des hommes et femmes qui, dans l'ombre, ont participé à la réussite du défilé aérien au-dessus de Bruxelles le 21 juillet dernier. La plupart des médias ont davantage montré les avions et les pilotes. Mais sans le travail effectué par le personnel technique en piste ou dans les hangars de maintenance, rien ne serait possible. Voici quelques images et portraits réalisés à Melsbroek lors de la conférence de presse du 19 juillet et le 21 juillet lors du défilé aérien.
Bien entendu, je tiens particulièrement à remercier l'équipe de COMOPSAIR/IPR pour la qualité de son accueil, son habituelle efficacité ainsi que pour les facilités accordées lors de ces deux journées.

Vous trouverez tout naturellement ces nouvelles images réparties sur mon site dans la catégorie Équipages.
Ces photos complètent l'article publié par SBAP la semaine dernière et dans lequel vous trouverez plusieurs de mes photos et 1 vidéo réalisés par mes soins. Voici le lien de l'article : http://www.sbap.be/events/2012/027belnatday2012/027belnatday2012.htm.

Toujours à propos du défilé aérien du 21 juillet, vous découvrirez ci-dessous le articles publiés par les collègues sur leur propre site :
Pour terminer, un heureux hasard, le survol du terrain des aéromodélistes de Heist par l'Airbus A330 de la Composante Air. La photo que j'ai pu prendre de leurs installation se trouve sur leur site : http://www.mash.be/
Remontons maintenant le temps d'une semaine supplémentaire. Nous nous retrouvons alors à une autre date symbolique, fêtée cette fois-ci par nos amis français. Comme chaque année depuis maintenant 25 ans, l'aéroclub de Valenciennes célébrait la fête nationale française par un meeting aérien gratuit. Le 14 juillet 2012, l'équipe de SBAP s'est donc rendue à Valenciennes et, malgré une météo capricieuse, nous vous en avons rapporté des images (et une vidéo). Le lien direct vers l'article complet est ici : http://www.sbap.be/events/2012/026valen2012/026valen2012.htm

Enfin, toujours à Valenciennes, nous avons pu suivre toutes les évolutions de la patrouille acrobatique belge des Red Devils lors de sa présentation. L'article complet est ici : http://www.sbap.be/marchetti/redvalen/redvalen.htm

Un tout grand merci à Monsieur Pierre Deprez pour toutes les facilités accordées pour la réalisation de ces reportages sur l'aérodrome de Valenciennes. Et, last but not least, des remerciements tous particuliers aux pilotes et techniciens des Red Devils pour la simplicité et la cordialité de leur accueil.

Video Avro CF100

Published on Jun 21, 2012 by
The AVRO CF-100 was the first conventional winged aircraft to break the sound barrier.
Designed and made in Canada. On December 18, 1952, S/L Janusz Zurakowski, the Avro company chief development test pilot, took the CF-100 Mk 4 prototype to Mach 1.0 in a dive from 30,000 ft. being the first straight-winged jet aircraft to achieve controlled supersonic flight.

Canada's physicists and aeronautical engineers were laid of from AVRO and went to work for NASA and gave their expertise there for the space program. Canada really was armed to the teeth and truly was a superpower back then (with help from the British from the Spitfire and Hurricane evolutions after WWII).

AVRO was Canada's largest aircraft manufacturer, and in its prior form of Victory Aircraft Ltd. in WWII and earlier, was a cover company for top secret research. Purposely funded by Great Britain, Canada was once destined to be THE superpower of the world in aeronautics. It's a shame what happened to this plan. Proud to be a Canadian engineer.

Brussels Airlines welcomes 25 flights with visitors for Tomorrowland



25 Brussels Airlines flights are departing from 17 different cities today to bring more than 2,000 passengers from Europe and far beyond to Brussels Airport. All these passengers have the same destination: Tomorrowland. On Monday 30 July they will all return home after a weekend of partying at the festival in Boom.. Those flying in from Barcelona were surprised during the flight by a unique live DJ set by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Yves V.

From the Big Apple to Moscow
Tomorrowland noticed a growing demand from people abroad wanting to visit the festival and decided to enter into a partnership with Brussels Airlines. Attractive travel packages were put on offer, including flight, festival ticket and hotel accommodation or tickets for the DreamVille camping. The concept proved to be a success: the packages were sold out in a matter of hours.Today more than 2,000 passengers landed at Brussels Airport, coming from NYC, Rome, Madrid, London, Stockholm, Prague, Geneva, Barcelona, Milan, Berlin, Manchester, Copenhagen, Porto, Budapest, Bilbao, Lisbon and Moscow on Brussels Airlines flights. The first flight, originating from NYC, landed at 6h25 and the last one, coming in from London, lands tonight at 20h05.  Upon departure, the passengers checked in at a Tomorrowland desk and were accompanied by special hostesses. When they arrived at Brussels Airport, friendly Tomorrowland hostesses were again on hand to welcome them. From there, they left for the hotel or DreamVille by Tomorrowland transport. After the festival, on Monday 30 July, the passengers will be brought back to Brussels Airport.
Christian Dumortier, marketing manager at Benelux Brussels Airlines: “Thanks to this partnership with Tomorrowland, we are able to associate our airline with a fantastic Belgian music festival which is incredibly popular in virtually all our European destinations. In no time at all more than 2,000 flight tickets were booked. Like Brussels Airlines, Tomorrowland has opted for quality and creativity. Out of these ingredients a great partnership has emerged, full of creative surprises, like the unique DJ flight and the giant Ferris wheel.”
http://storage.prezly.com.s3-external-3.amazonaws.com/3c/a80404d164b248b4c1ab4ff7023f7e/P1050697.jpg DJs on board
DJ duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Antwerp DJ Yves V surprised the passengers who departed from Barcelona with a DJ set on board. The DJs played a set at an altitude of more than 10,000 metres to warm up the enthusiastic crowd of 140 passengers and to set the tone for three fantastic days at Tomorrowland. Upon arrival at  DreamVille they were able to continue the dancing to the beats of The Gathering, the traditional DreamVille party that takes place the day before the festival opens.
The treat is on Brussels Airlines
At Tomorrowland, Brussels Airlines will bring the visitors' heads in the clouds for a brief moment: the main attraction at Tomorrowland 2012 is Europe’s tallest ferris wheel : The Brussels Airlines Cloud Rider. Nearly 60 metres high, the wheel was brought in from Düsseldorf and 20 mechanics were responsible for constructing it. The 40 pods can each hold 8 passengers at a time, meaning 2,200 passengers per go. Thanks to Brussels Airlines, all Tomorrowland visitors will be treated to a free ride on the wheel. The personal code on their special Tomorrowland boarding pass also gives them a chance of winning some really great flight prizes, including one year of free flights with Brussels Airlines.

On Friday 27 July at 12.00, the festival starts. The organisers are expecting 180,000 visitors and 35,000 DreamVille guests. The festival ends at midnight on Sunday 29 July. This year, those who stay at home can also enjoy the festival thanks to Tomorrowland TV: seven hours of live television on the Tomorrowland YouTube channel with live sets, interviews, extras and the all-important look behind the scenes.

Bomber Boys - BBC Documentary.

Brothers Colin and Ewan McGregor follow up their documentary The Battle of Britain with a film exploring Bomber Command, a rarely-told story from the Second World War.

The film focuses primarily on the men who fought and died in the skies above occupied Europe, with numerous examples of individual heroism and extraordinary collective spirit, and Colin learns to fly the key aircraft of the campaign: the Lancaster bomber. But this is also the story of a controversy that has lasted almost 70 years.

The programme covers six years of wartime operations, and traces the obstacles and challenges that were overcome as the RAF developed and deployed the awesome fighting force that was Bomber Command.

Edinburgh is a vibrant city, hosting a number of exciting events all year.  The Old Town, proclaimed  UNESCO World Heritage with the famous Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile Promenade and the many bars, pubs and restaurants of the Grass Market make Edingburgh a fantastic citytrip destination offering lots of attractions, places to visit and a shopping experience like no other. Edinburgh is also the capital of Scotland. The city houses the Scottish Parliament, and is the second most important financial centre of the UK, after London, due to the presence of many banks and insurance companies.  
Edinburgh airport is the ideal gateway to discover the city, the peaceful countryside in the Lothians land and the surrounding green scenery in Scotland. This year, Edinburgh airport was awarded for the second time “Best European Airport” in the category 5-10 million passengers. 

As from 28 October Brussels Airlines will fly six times a week from Brussels Airport to Edinburgh Airport.  From summer season 2013 onwards the airline will even offer two daily flights.
