If you haven’t seen my last topic Brussels Airlines Appreciation Spotting go check it out if you want to!
So on the 13th of May I went spotting at Brussels again, if you saw my last topic (linked above) you may know I got a lot of shots, that’s why I’m making a second topic!
As the title suggests, this was a new location for me, and I plan on definitely going there again since I had a great view of all the aircraft.
As always, these shots are edited.
- Landing runways: 25L and 25R
- Departing runway: 25R
- Camera: Fujifilm X-T2
- Lens: Fujifilm XF 100-400mm
And with all of that out of the way, here are the pictures!
Let’s start off with a new one for me, here we have a gorgeous Aegean Airbus A321neo (SX-NAC) exiting runway 25R after a flight from Athens International Airport (ATH/LGAV).
After the wave of Brussels Airlines departures, I was extremely happy to see this, here we have a beautiful Swiss Bombardier CS300 /Airbus A220-300 (HB-JCD) departing towards Zurich Airport (ZRH/LSZH), this was the first time I ever got to see a CSeries /A220 so I was very happy.
Since we were standing next to the private/parking area for aircraft, we got to see quite a few private aircraft, this being one of them. A beautiful little Jetfly Aviation Pilatus PC-12 (LX-JFE) taxiing to runway 25R to depart to Dijon-Longvic Air Base (DIJ/LFSD).
Right after that I got to see an airline I hadn’t seen before in person, here we have a gorgeous LOT Boeing 737 MAX 8 (SP-LVC) bound for Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW/EPWA).
Some time after that I got to see this beauty up close and personal. Here we have a Delta Boeing 767-300ER (N1200K) taxiing out to runway 25R to depart towards John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK/KJFK).
Next up we have this Belgian Air Force Dassault Falcon 7X (OO-LUM) being towed to the private aircraft area.
After a while we got to see quite a rare aircraft, this Tunisair Boeing 737-600 (TS-ION) departing towards Tunis–Carthage Airport (TUN-DTTA).
A while after that it started raining, so we took cover, but we ventured out into the rain for a few aircraft, this being one of them. This French Air Force Airbus A330-200 (F-UJCS) did a touch-and-go on runway 25R after flying from Shannon Airport (SNN/EINN) and continued on to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG/LFPG).
Not too long after that surprise, we got to see one of the many special liveries of that day. This Etihad Boeing 787-9 (A6-BLV) wearing the Formula 1 Grand Prix livery blasting off of runway 25R bound for Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH/OMAA).
And last but not least, here we have an ANA Boeing 777-300ER (JA784A) lifting off from runway 25R, bound for Narita International Airport (NRT/RJAA).
And that’s it! I still have a lot more pictures that I could make another topic with so… should I make a part 2 of this? Let me know!
Anyway, as always I hope you liked the pictures, let me know what you thought of them and maybe give me some feedback.
