These links show QR A310 and QR A345 landing.
I understand QR A345 might be the King's charter, but why the A310? And from where did the A310 fly from?


Keep flying, because the sky is no limit!

In Belgium we've had again the QR A345 six weeks ago in LIEGE Airport (where we are more used to Cargo flights...)

One of the Emirs fancied a hunting party in the Belgian Ardennes (= famous forest region) it seems.

And it wasn't the first time.

Ouch, going on a hunting party outside the hunting season.
Thanks for the hint, we'll investigate the matter...

So he's not the King? Just a admiral?

I doubt they could do that. Maybe a halt somewhere?

Exactly, but aren't they for military use exclusively?
