SBAP update 04-07-2021

Forwarded message - From: sbap 

Dear aviation enthusiast,

This week on SBAP web site

Events:

Brussels Airport: June Air Traffic
June was undoubtedly a busy month for Brussels airport and the adjoining Melsbroek military base.
In addition to passenger and cargo traffic, military traffic was intense due to the visit of the new
American President Joe Biden and the mythical Air Force One.
With just over 400 photos presented, we thought it appropriate to separate things into two pages,
one focusing on commercial or business aviation and the other marking military or government traffic.
In spite of this separation, some aircraft in the civil domain had been "charted" by the Belgian defence...

CH-13… Happy Retirement
This page is the logical continuation of the article we published when the CH-13 was
withdrawn from the 15th Wing fleet and its last flight to Beauvechain airbase (EBBE),
the ultimate destination for this aircraft. Under the auspices of the War Heritage Institute,
the aircraft finally found its way into the inventory of the 1st Wing Historical Center in
order to be preserved and, above all, to offer the public access to this mythical machine
that marked some of the great pages in the history of our Air Force.

Dear aviation enthusiast,

This week on SBAP web site

Events:

Brussels Airport: May Air Traffic
May was certainly a busy month for military and governmental aircraft.
There were obviously quite a few movements recorded by the 15th Wing, which continues
to fly 5 C-130H's and of course the A400M's, which mainly continue their training flights
as part of the operational qualification of aircraft and crews.
Also quite a few foreign visitors, what could be more normal with two EU summits and
one NATO summit in one month! In short, it was a ballet of RCAF, USAF and other Air Forces
allowing us to picture the Canadian Canadair Challenger, the American C-42A and C-40C
or even the plane of the government of Kazakhstan, the one that came from Tirana carrying
the Albanian national colours or the one bringing the delegation representing Serbia
and relatively rare under our skies.

Postcards from Florennes
Covid year two...airshows and other aviation events are still at a standstill.
We miss the smell of kerosene, the din of jet engines and the sight of arrow-fast planes.
So to make up for this lack, one of the solutions is to go around the bases
of Belgium and to immortalize some aircraft (that we have already photographed dozens
of times, but you never know...).
Firmly decided while the weather is good, it is towards Florennes that the objectives were
turned with the aim to see and immortalize the Lockheed Martin F-16AM FA-87 specially
decorated to celebrate the three-quarter of a century of this Air Force.

Much more to come...Stay tuned…

For the next update, we will cross the Atlantic Ocean!
No PCR test needed or quarantine…just a simple click
on the pages we will propose to our readers. Wait and see

Dear aviation enthusiast,

This week on SBAP web site

Events:

Brussels Airport: April Air Traffic
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 in this page.
This month offered a rich panel of Civilian and Military aircrafts.
Fasten your seatbelt, adjust your mouth mask and here we go !

Dear aviation enthusiast,

This week on SBAP web site:

Events:

Half Century Mighty Hercs
& The 15th Wing transition year

The modernization of the Belgian Air Force and more specifically the consequent changes
within the 15th Transport Wing are going well. Indeed, three A400M's have already been
delivered and half of the fleet of the "Mighty Hercs"' has been retired.
The milestone year of 2021 is the last year of activity for the good old Hercules and before
their well-deserved final retirement, it was necessary to mark the occasion in a very visible way.

Dear aviation enthusiast,

This week on SBAP web site:

Events:
Brussels Airport: January Air Traffic
The first month of the year 2021 has already passed...
only eleven months to go and it is Christmas... Yesssssss !
So here we are again with the activity at Brussels Airport, which, it must be said,
did not benefit from very good weather every day. But here we are, sometimes
with some rare or interesting planes arriving in the rain, in the fog or during a
small snowstorm, that caught the authorities off guard...
Enjoy your flight with us and stay safe.

"Razzle Blades"
On 28 January 2021, the Belgian Air Force presented the new paint scheme of the
Agusta A109BAi solo display. H46 helicopter (OT-AKN), last one delivered (in February 1994)
of a series of 46 aircraft ordered by the Belgian authorities on December 8th, 1988,
which exchanged its traditional green livery for a much bolder paint scheme.
It is time to follow us on the Beauvechain airbase and discover the official presentation
of "Razzle Blades". Ready ? Lift off !

Welcome Home "Atlas"
This was an important event and in fact, it has taking a long time for everyone to be
able to welcome the A400M CT-02, alias MSN 106. This aircraft is the first one to proudly
wear the black, yellow and red colours of the Kingdom of Belgium and the
"Belgian Air Force" markings... National pride is still present whatever one may say.

Dear aviation enthusiast,

This week on SBAP web site:


Events:
Brussels Airport: October Air Traffic
The month of October was more than certainly the one which put forward the giant "Atlas".
You will understand, this is the long awaited arrival of the first BeLux A400M.
But October was also the month of European Union summits, no less than two over
a period of two weeks! And finally, this autumn month was also the one bringing some
surprises of choice, planes quite rare on the Brussels Airport runways and which we
were able to be immortalized for the pleasure of the eyes and the digital sensors despite
the "Fifty shades of gr
ey" of the Belgian sky with time to time some few shy sun rays

SNAP 2020 @ Nörvenich
This is a purely national exercise aimed to rescue German citizens in crisis or war zones,
whether civilian or military. These are the air assets that are tested during the SNAP exercise
with as main goal perfecting the coordination between the different types of aircraft, whether
combat or transport. It is not common to see the Luftwaffe from this angle and this exercise

Oirschotse Heide
The "Oirschotse Heide" located near the city of Eindhoven is also known as the GLV5
training area and the site is used very intensively for exercises. While walking around this
reserve one can be faced with practicing soldiers who sometimes move heavy armored
vehicles and possibly at high speeds. The Dutch Air Force uses part of the reserve for
helicopter crew training. It is possible to witness some Chinook, Cougar or other Apache
in action. Follow us in the dust and sand of a combat area
