Cheers.
I will be in Brussels next week and as I will have plenty of free time I thought I would go to the airport for some spotting.
As I will not have a car, I'll stick by the front park 1, which is fine for me and for my 400mm.
Still I have two small doubts.
According to weather forecast websites, winds are predicted to be from 272º (W) and 334º (NNW). If that really happens will the 25R be in use for departures? It looks obvious to me, but I've seen some weird runway usage in Brussels before.
Second question. Is there any chance to know in advance the schedule for the 744F from CargoB ? It's the only missing in my collection and I really want to nail it in Brussels as I've heard that they are going to move operations to another airport.
Thanks in advance for any possible help.

Hello claudio,
Yes, with westerly or northwesterly winds 25R will be used for departures and Cargo arrivals and 25L for most other arrivals. However in case the winds blow from the north they might use 02 for arrivals (depending on wind strength) and both 25R and 02 for departures.
For the CargoB 744 you can check this page and choose either arrivals or departures:

You will still need to check that on the morning of your spotting day. Otherwise, try flightstats.com.
Good luck.

Make that 07R and 02 for departures in case of moderate winds from the north or east  Wink
