On 7th September 2005 we had a spotting trip to Brussels. Mainly this was so I could get an IB CRJ on video, but I also photographed other aircraft as well. My camera is a small zoom compact, so I can't get the same close ups and details that other photographers get with planes, but I did my best. Photos taken with sport mode, weather very hot and sunny. All aircraft are approaching to land on 25L. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/snbafan/Trains%20n%20Planes/thomascook_bru.jpg Belgian Thomas Cook. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/snbafan/Trains%20n%20Planes/swisssun_bru.jpg Swiss Sun. I didn't notice the Sun bit until I enlarged the photo after. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/snbafan/Trains%20n%20Planes/snba_bru_03.jpg SN Brussels Airlines ARJ100. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/snbafan/Trains%20n%20Planes/oovlm_bru.jpg VLM's logojet OO-VLM. My first VLM bagged on finals to BRU, usually I get them at LCY. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/snbafan/Trains%20n%20Planes/dhl_bru.jpg DHL comes into view. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/snbafan/Trains%20n%20Planes/ba_bru.jpg I've bagged loads of BA Airbuses, but never one in flight before.

Thanks Matt. The Swiss Sun is my favourite one too. Most planes that day were A319/320s or CRJs (apart from the Belgian regional jets).

Thanks for the comments. I am not 100% sure about Swiss Sun, but from the name I can only assume that they are a charter section of Swiss who fly to holiday places. Maybe that was the only aircraft available to them at that time because they are a new one to me as well. Usually the Swiss ones I've seen at BRU have been just ordinary Swiss titled ones.

Great shots there louise! Yes Swiss Sun is a charter arm of Swiss. It flies A320 in a dense config (all economy) to places like AGP and ALC from ZRH. i'm sure it was just filling in for a usual A320 on the 7th :)
