Hi all, I've seen two very old-looking freighters (according to their paint scheme) at Liege airport, Belgium, this saturday. I didn't have my digicam and they were gone today... There was a B747 (maybe a 100 series) and a L1011, both with no title, can somebody tell me more about them ?
I would also have more information on the timetables at this airport, the airport's website only show timetables for commercial flights...
Thanks anyway !

Suggest you call the Bierset AIS office - phone (04) 234 8492...
They would know about the scheduled flights, cargo as well as passenger flights.
Non scheduled flights... they only know a few hours before ETA...
Maybe Aviapartner (handling) can also help you - phone (04) 234 8435

Thanks to you, B747Skipper, I will try to phone them next week. I've noticed a quite nice place at the end of the runway to see the planes before landing so I will surely go there in the future
Thanks also to Apunega, you're right, this was the same B747 (with the same bad paint) !

I was at the end of the runway yesterday, the CAL 747 was taxiing with emergency vehicles around... A security guard came in less than 5 minutes to see if I was ok, he said it was out for the first engine test after its accident, and also said the pilot would certainly do some touch and go tests in the next days before going out. I will try to get there this afternoon to see if something happens

Hi Ivan, I've just read an article about the accident in a local newpaper today.
The article says that some Boeing experts went to the airport to work on the CAL 747, with interventions on the fuselage, 2 engines and 3 wheel (sorry I don't know the exact word in english). According to the newspaper, the intervention cost $ 5 millions, plus an extra cost for the broken lights on the runway.
The article also says that the B747 is now ready to fly again, and that he would take off this saturday morning, but I'm just back from the airport and he's still on the ground...
