EU - NATO Summit

Post by FredL »

This afternoon, no security or anything yet around the airport.
I don't know wether or not they are related with UE Finance ministers summit or with incoming NATO Summit, but present at Abelag : 2 x Spanish air force Falcon 50s (45-40 & 45-42) + German air force A-319 (15 + 02) and a slovak air force Fokker 70 (OM-BYB).

You are right ! Sorry : Falcon 900"s indeed.

With those four C-17s arriving, I guess that we may expect some US helicopters flying over and around Brussels soon (for Obama's visit, a few years ago, we had VH-60 and VH3 flying over : it looks like they use to make some check flights around).

The so-called Fokker 70 OM-BYB is in fact a Fokker 100 (1 overwing emergency exit has been deleted on each side)
