Today (13/02/02) a SN A340 (dark blue colour scheme) took off at BRU from RWY 25R at 15:00. The plane turned right, heading towards the "Atomium" and beyond. Any information on the destination of this flight and the destiny of this plane?

Established02, I just send an e-mail to Biac for the destination.

No idea. I only saw the plane on take-off, a few miles away from the airport.

Unfortunately BRU's website (www.brusselsairport.be) only gives information on scheduled passenger flights.

The A340-300 landed at Chateauroux at 1552, operating under Airbus callsign 'AIB047'. Another one leaving BRU for happier skies..  Sad

Today the 13th it was A340-300 OO-SCY. Tomorrow A340-300 OO-SCZ will be leaving as well (AIB051). Of the long haul aircraft, only A340-200 OO-SCX and A330-300 OO-SFX remain in Brussels.

Staffan - I will try to find out. If I have news I will post it. OO-SCZ is the aircraft that operated Sabena's last commercial flight. Cotonou (Benin) - Brussels.

Donder10,

What ? Air Haiti ? do they have a company or at least
are they ensuring long-haul flights ? I've never heard
about that...

On 12/02/2002 while rolling through 25R for take off from BRU, I saw on the right side of my a/c some two green airplanes parking next to the new terminal that is still not ready.

I couldnt really see what company it was , but it said on it in big "AIR" .

Can anyone help?

Hey Hb-iqj,

The aircrafts were 2 A300's from Air Afrique.

Flying Isd,

JMC operates the A330, and as far as I know, they don't have a reason to operate the A340.

But maybe...

Jes fellow, I checked on A.net some pictures of JMC and it was that one.
It was A330's.

Can anyone tell me where they are from and what two of them where doing in BRU?

Dear Hb-iqj,

Those A330's from JMC at Brussels: this would wonder me. I am sure you mean the A300's of Air Afrique.

Take a look in the replies of the link I gave you, there you will see what they were doing in Brussels.

Regards,
Frederic

Perhaps Donder10 meant Air Tahiti Nui, who are receiving one of SN's A343s...

Staffan - Sorry, I had no time today to keep an eye on the Sabena A340. Did you go to the airport Staffan? Did anyone else spot the OO-SCZ?

As for the other aircraft everyone's talking about. They are two Air Afrique A300-600's. (not JMC A330's) They arrived Thursday evening. As we speak, one of the two is being repainted white by Sabena Technics and will soon be sent to Germany for cargo conversion and will fly for Islandsflug. The second should follow the same fate.

25 Post contains images Staffan : A330DAT, nope, I didn't have time to go up there, a shame since it was so nice weather... Another time perhaps... Staffan
26 Post contains images Sabena 690 : Hey, I am in doubt if Air Tahiti would operate the A340-300. At the moment they only operate the A342. Maybe as a replacement for the A342? Let's see.
27 VirginFlyer : Sabena 690 - TN are repleacing their A340-200 with two A340-300s; one ex-Sabena and one ex-Canada3000 if I recall correctly. There was some discussion
