Brussels Airport: December Air Traffic (Belgium)
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
