Hi all,

Realised recently that this is still flying - mainly into BRU. Any particular days/times, and where would be the best place to shoot it (i.e. does it use a particular runway)?

Also, can it be seen frequently anywhere else?

Thanks,

Karl

Hi Karl,

If you're referring to the EK-74799, she can be seen at Amsterdam-Schiphol as well. After quite some time chasing here, I finally managed to capture her on August 3rd, hooray!

Catching her at Schiphol was always difficult for me, when they are operating on the runway 18s. It often arrives around noon, and that means that Schiphol has two runways open for landing. Normally flights coming in from the East will use 18C, but it will vary between 18R and 18C. I was lucky as she arrived on 18R, where I was standing.

If Schiphol is operating on the 06, around noon 36R will also be opened up for traffic from the East. Meaning you can be spotting quite happily at the 06 all morning, awaiting the Saudia, just to see it land in the distance on 36R. Or, the other way around... 

Saudia Cargo is definitely scheduled on Saturdays at Schiphol. Tomorrow, however, a B747-400 is expected, so the equipment can vary.

Hope this helps!

Cheers!

Thanks.....

However I was referring to Saudi's own HZ-AIU, which appears to frequent BRU (sorry, should have been a bit clearer).

Never mind. I've seen HZ-AIU mostly on Sundays at Brussels and always landing on runway 25R, the one nearest to the cargo area. Lastly seen her there in April this year. However, the one time I managed to take a picture of it, she was landing on 25L.

Good luck catching her!

Cheers! :wave:

Thanks. Hopefully I'll catch it as I'm planning a couple of trips to BRU before the year-end.
