Meet & greet with all five Belgian Icons of Brussels Airlines

On Monday 14 January 2019, Brussels Airlines organised a remarkable aviation event. For the first time ever, the Belgian airline lined up all of its five Belgian Icons at Brussels Airport for a unique family portrait.

Exactly one week earlier, on Monday 7 January 2019, the airline had posted a photo contest on its Facebook page. Everyone who was interested to join the event, could post one photo of any of the five Belgian Icon aircraft. The five aircraft are:

Aircraft Type Registration Name Livery
Airbus A320-214 OO-SNA Trident Red Devils livery
Airbus A320-214 OO-SNB Rackham Tintin livery
Airbus A320-214 OO-SNC Magritte Magritte livery
Airbus A320-214 OO-SND Aerosmurf Smurfs livery
Airbus A320-214 OO-SNF Amare Tomorrowland livery


Two days later a jury, consisting of Brussels Airlines employees, made a selection of the ten most beautiful pictures and all of the ten photographers were contacted and kindly invited to join this once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity.

I was one of the happy few that got selected to join this special event. Here are some photos of this unique line-up of all five Belgian Icons aircraft.

I would like to thank Brussels Airlines for organizing the photo contest and this unique aviation event.
