Hi! Thanks a lot for the answers. Sounds fantastic! So I´ll give the activity zone "a try" and hope there will be some space for my small (German <img src="/discussions/graphics/smile.gif" ALT="Smile">) VW Polo between all the Belgian and Dutch cars. Really curious: Regular parking fees are ge...Jump to post
Hello! I am going to fly from Brussels-South (CRL) to Glasgow-Prestwick (PIK) with Ryanair tomorrow afternoon until Sunday evening. Does anyone know if there are any free parking facilities in the nearer vicinity of the airport and how to get there (approaching from Aachen/Liege)? Thank you for your...Jump to post
Hello! Does anyone of you know, if the former LTU-TriStar D-AERP (c/n 1052) is still sitting on the ramp at Oostende? After more than five years of storage in Tucson it was bought/re-registered by Ducor World and ferried to Oostende in May 2001. First the registration had been changed and thereafter...Jump to post
According to the "Bundesanstalt für Unfalluntersuchung" (BFU) both TCAS-devices in the involved aircrafts worked properly and ordered the B757 to descend and the TU154 to climb. Unfortunately the controller gave the TU154 the order to descent..., the Bashkirian pilot reacted accordingly! See the fol...Jump to post

As I am working for Thomas Cook/Germany (in the tour operator branch, not for the airline) I would like to hear your comments on the following question: Do you think, it is a good idea to change a well known brand name into another one? I guess most (at least) german clients will be a little bit con...Jump to post
I wish you a soon weather improvement for your (most likely) interesting tour to FKB. Here in Düsseldorf the sun is shining from a nearly cloudless sky.
yes, D-ABYM should be still at FKB for at least 4 or 5 weeks.
for the newest informations and photos.
Hi! Former D-AERP left TUS app. 4 weeks ago and can now be seen in nearly full LTU colours in Oostende (OST)/Belgium. According to some romours it will be converted into a freighter. It has a Bulgarian registration now (LZ-TPC). It was a nice experience to see one of these a/c again. Regards, FrankJump to post
Does anyone know, if the aircraft is still in OST and if it is visible from outside the airport?
Due to the fact, that I´m living near LTUs´ homebase it would be great for me to see one of the 1011´s, which flew over my house day for day until 1995!
Hi Lamyl! Yes, I can confirm Englandairs´reply! The A333 was parking in front of the LTU hangar here in DUS in full Khalifa-Colours but still with the German reg D-AERG at the end of the previous week. I don´t know if it is still there, but there was no action taking place around the aircraft. Regar...Jump to post
Hi Notarzt Daniel (and everyone who answered)! Thanks a lot for the infos...! In this case the plane I saw must be EC-BZO because my last visit to PMI took place in September 2000: The Coronado (visible in about 200m distance from an airport fence) appeared to be very dirty but still in one part.

According to german broadcast reports, Schiphol arrival hall and train station have been closed due to minimum 1 explosion in an restaurant/toilet area.
Fire is under control but heavy smoke in the building.
No further reports about any injuries (hopefully there aren´t any!)...!
Hello! During a trip to PMI I saw a former Spantax CV-990 Coronado (painted in latest company colors, registration ???, more or less in a good condition) parked on a remote apron position. Because all of its sisterships have been scrapped in the early 90´s I am wondering, what will happen to this ai...Jump to post
