Hi,

At about 5 p.m. local time I saw a 747SP flying over my house, heading for BRU. I've looked through the database, and this seems to be the aircraft in question:

Does anyone know who it belongs to and what it's doing in BRU?

Very interesting!

Hopefully some BRU Photographers are standby to capture this rare bird on film.

No, I don't. However, I noticed a lot of business jets on the Abelag ramp at 17:30.
One of them was a Luftwaffe bizjet, so I thought there could be a NATO meeting.
But this B747sp does not seem to fit in the usual crowd of Government or Air Force planes that comes to Brussels for such NATO meetings.

VP-BAT has been used by Qatar officials, but I don't know if it's still the case. It wears Qatar Amiri Flight colours without titles.

The Aircraft has also been seen at Bournemouth today, so that might be where it came from/went to...
