this morning, together with a bunch of other enthusiasts (including Sabena 690) I had the honor to witness the very first arrival of a Continental Boeing 767-424(ER) at Brussels National Airport (BRU/EBBR).
The aircraft that was used for this flight, was N76062 (c/n 29457), I think one of the newer CO Boeing 767-400's (delivered in March 2002), so the aircraft was still really clean. The flight (don't remember the flight number) was inbound from Newark.
Well, I must day, that I really enjoyed to see this aircraft over here at BRU. It was like 9:17 AM CET (7:17 AM GMT) and the morning sun really lit up the aircraft. I was also impressed by the beauty of the raked wingtips...
At about 11:25 AM CET, the aircraft departed (back to Newark I presume). We were able to see the aircraft taxi to RWY02, line up and take off from the same runway...so we had another good opportunity to enjoy this beautiful bird for a couple of minutes.
Just wanted to share this with you guys...can't wait to see this beauty again...this time I'll try to bring my photocamera with me

Which reg had your Avro?
It is good possible that I have a picture of it!
If you give me the regs of the airplanes on which you was today, I will look than of I have pictures of it.
I saw both OO-DWC and OO-DWE, they are lovely
Here are the first pictures of the plane at EBBR (I uploaded them all, the screeners have the honour to make a choice between them ).
I must say, the quality is a bit less than expected, but some are great

Nice pictures indeed. Althoug, I'd like to make one little remark: is it possible you resized them, because it seems that some lines aren't really sharp, but more like a composition of horizontal and/or vertical lines...But, next to that, nice picutres indeed...
Nice to hear that. So, guess you could say we met this morning, more or less
The weather was outstanding...This was one of the most fascinating days at BRU I've ever seen...too bad I had to go back to study

It is the first time that I resize them. I did that to 1024.
Do you think that the lines should be better without resizing them?
I did that because the most people say that they resize them on the photography forum.

Nice pictures Sabena. But why so many? It only makes the queue longer than neccesary. And at least 80 % of them will be kicked back as doubles. For example:
They all show the plane from the same angle, witrh virtually no difference except the plane coming closer and closer. Know what I mean?

Somebody mailed me with a foto of the CO 764 at BRU yesterday (picture taken from the ramp) and he thinks that this isn't the first time CO flies a 764 to BRU. Could this be true? Anyhow, we still saw a CO 764 at BRU

Nice pictures, nice plane.
Ddi not get the chance to get to the airport but I took a picture last year in December at DUS a 767-400 of CO.
It is, according the reg., one of the latest deliveries.
Good work, BRU-spotters !!
