Hmmm, such a good looking place in Zurich airport...

(in fact is it the smokers lounge, so no place for me - except for taking a picture). OK, let´s go, once again with a well suited bird for this one-hour flight.

Bye, bye, mountains!

Getting back to Germany (Fulda beyond)...

... and into Germany North. To the left we should see Rinteln and Porta Westfalica, and clearly the Weser river approaching the Porta between the mountain ridges.

Some manouvres, see the approach procedure on the ND.

And this is the time & place to turn into final towards the 09L.

An uneventful landing and the short way to grab a taxi make this trip complete. But I´ve been here too often to make pictures... getting back overseas soon!

Another great tour Gerold!  Thanks for that.  That sure is one heck of a nice lounge though.  I could sit there all day and have some Merlot and watch the planes.  Well, if they could keep the smokers away.

 

But loved your shots!

Very entertaining mix of flight sim and real world shots.  Makes me want to go on a real vacation.  But I guess for now, I will have to settle for the 'simulated' version.  I will have to wait for July.

The smokers keep me out of that bar, too. I once took a collegue over there who does smoke. For him this place was paradise in an airport.

Super set Gerold.

These shots are so cold that I have just turned the air con off.

All are excellent shots but that fourth one is my fav.

Indeed a cold tour, as you have seen on #6 the RL flight (and sim timing) was (set) on January 26.

I enjoy the simulated vacations in our sims. But real ones are not bad either. You are not coming over to Europe in July, are you?

No, we are going to Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada).  Kink of ironic, we live in Vancouver (Washington) and we are going to Vancouver (Canada) to vacation.
