Brussels > New York City - Here I come

EUR_1083Sonnyphotoswoauw, check out the old plane next to us, Boeing 737 Romanian Air EUR_1086SonnyphotosI spoke to soon, should not have called the plane next to us an old plane, as we ended up stuck on tarmac while the engineers had to check a switch that was displaying an error. And naturally Romanian air did not have a problem and took of before us :-) Now, 45 min later, ready for take off, but I know I missed my connection to new york now, damn !
