photography: you have
to be by car, otherwise forget about it
But there are some exceptions for take off photography.
We have 2 neat spots:
1) the bridge at Sabena House:
2) the Brucargo spot (basically the aircraft rotate and fly overhead you):
How you get there:
When you are in the arrivals terminal, go outside. Walk to the left. About 200 metres further, you have a fence from where you can see Sabena Technics. On your right you have the car park, with just in front of it, a busy road. Make that you are on the footpath of that road (make that you don't take the wrong road, you have one on the side of the airport and one on the side of the car park. It's the one at the car park). When you are good, you will be on a foodpath with a small fence on your right side, to protect you from the cars. Follow this, it's quite long (certainly 500m). To check if you are good: all cars drive in the opposite direction of you (so for cars it's a one way direction) and the road has 2 or 3 sections. SN
Technics, Sky Chefs (catering) etc will be on your left side. Follow untill you are at a bridge with a roundabout. Go right over there, cross the first street, walk under the bridge, cross the second street and there you enter a road which will lead you to DHL and Abelag (bizjets). Follow that road. If 25R is in use for take offs, you will see the aircrafts take off, and on your right side you will see several DHL's parked and bizjets. Continue, you will pass the Sobelair buildings and Sabena House. Continue untill you see the bridge over the 'highspeed route' or how do you say that. At the bridge, you have the first spot. If you want to see Brucargo (with normally Eva Air, Saudi Arabian Airlines Cargo, Singapore Airlines Cargo etc) + if you want to take rotate shots (make that you have a good zoom), go over the bridge, the road makes a right turn, follow the road past the houses and take the first road on your right when you have passed all houses (about 150 metres from the bridge). There is also a sign 'De Mosselbank'. Follow that road upstairs, to check if you are good: on your left side it should be all grass. Follow untill you reach the fence. There you can install yourself
I hope it's clear, feel free to ask further questions. Movements: check http://www.brusselsairport.be
on saturday evening.
I will not make it to lead you around, hopefully somebody else can! Because the best spots are landing spots, but without a car: forget about it.
