Read this sentence in a message :
"Ter gelegenheid van de eerste verjaardag van het Q-Music, en in het kader van een wedstrijd voor luisteraars, worden vier Boeings 737 van Virgin Express tijdelijk in de kleuren van het populaire radiostation getooid. De toestellen worden ingezet op vluchten naar Athene, Barcelona, Milaan of Madrid."
=> For non-Dutch spotters : Q-Music, a Belgian commercial radiostation, is 1 year young and 4 B737 of Virgin Express will temporarily wear a new livery in the colors of Q-Music. Till now it is not known which 4 737's it will be so, spotters around Brussels, keep the cameras ready and let's hope for some sunny cold days.

Will these planes be totally repainted or will it just be like a small sticker (cfr. Brugge 2002), added on the fuselage?
It's nice for the spotters, for sure. However, is it meaningful to have 4 logojets(?) flying around Europe, giving international exposure to (what seems to me) a very local product? It may be good advertisement for Hertz, Jaguar, Delsey,... but can it be for a radio station like Q-music as well?
Personally, I would not know where to find this station on the FM band. But then again, I may not be part of Q-music's target group.

Karl, what's the fun about having "cold" days?
On monday RWY20 was in use at BRU, due to strong (southern?) winds.
I think the A.net database only contains a handful of pictures regarding RWY20 traffic. Unfortunately, there are perhaps no good spotting locations to view the interesting RWY20/RWY25R intersection.

Established02: According to my information, the Virgin Express titles on the fuselage will be replaced by a rather big QMusic logo and a stylish diagonal 'Airlines' title after it. Under the 'Airlines' title, there will be indicated that the aircraft is being operated by Virgin Express.
And Karl probablymeant that, if you'd like the weather to be good and sunny these days, this 'll probably mean that it will be very cold. No more 30°C sunny weather these days over here...

Sabena 690: Guess so.
Anyway, Q-Music is organizing a couple of flights on November 12th, which is their first anniversary. If you'd like to win a seat on one of those flights (including a stay overnight at the destination), check out http://www.q-music.be. All you have to do is enter some information, and hope they call you. If they actually give you a phonecall, you have to say 'Q-Airlines, this is your captain speaking'. Can't be that hard, now can it? Good luck to all of you

Yep, I meant cold bright sunny days. Summer is gone, so let's concentrate on chilling days.
I do hope to see those planes quick and I share the meaning of you all : let's hope the livery is outstanding.
Nobody on this forum who can get inside information from Virgin ?
Would be nice to know at least the period those planes would fly. If the anniversary is on 12.11, I suppose they will be flying around the weekend before this day and remeber that 11.11 is a holiday for most of us, so expect a bigger number of spotters around the airport if weather is good.
