SBS - ACAR

Hi folks,

I want to get in touch with someone who has also a SBS station in Belgium, preferable Flanders area, collecting the acars. I had a problem with it recently and lost some data. Please contact me via private message or skystef@mail.be

Thanks, Stef

Re: BRU 11/06/2011 Solar Impulse

I'm afraid I don't understand your message correctly. It means that Solar Impulse will fly VFR during the night? Correct, last leg can be done during the night. Briefing of today just ended, they can have a slot between 1500-2000 local. Runway choice will be 25R, somewhere at the mid point to take ...

BRU 11/06/2011 Solar Impulse

As the weather seems favorable from late afternoon on with a windspeed of 5kt or less, a provisory green light has given to "release" Solar Impulse bound for Paris. Of course to be confirmed but if it leaves, a slot can be given with etd somewhere between 1600-2000 local.

Re: BRU 13/05/2011 Solar Impulse

Latest info realeased by ATC indicates eta between 2000-2100 local. Rwy choice is still under discussion, crosswind >5kt is out of the question for this plane. As wind takes a N'ly direction after 1900 local, rwy 02/20 comes as preferable choice. You can follow the plane via a google map (works only...

Re: BRU 13/05/2011 Solar Impulse

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed, that on Friday the 13th, the plane will come to BRU. Currently the hour of arrival is In discussion. To attract the first VIPs it would be best if the plane lands somewhere in the afternoon. Preferable final track is over Brussels city, then vectoring for approach o...

Has anybody an idea when the IL76 would leave? Would it be around the same time frame as the others?

Despite the fog, I'm still tempted to go see them take off... or at least hear them :lol:
According flight plan @ 1830 loc.

Re: BRU 19/09/2010

Older planes (B707&DC8) or most militaries like C17 don't show up on internet radars. You can sort it out via an acar list like one to be found on this link Checking the time, at 22:59:33 HZ-ANB lifted off and believe me a departing MD11 makes a hell of a noice.
