The final part of my India trip began, as usual, in the middle of the night. Takeoff at 03:30 local time.

To me the routing was surprisingly far to the north...

... so we crossed the Volga near Samara (good morning @jury42 !),

... and the northernmost point was not far from Moscow.

Descending just after passing Kassel...

... with the Main river below.

The approach to 7R looks more complicated than it is...

... but the final was accompanied by our lovely chimes. At least I could land and taxi the beast, the sim crashed when shutting down the plane.

Very pleased to see that the connecting one was already waiting, ...

... before we had to wait for incoming traffic on the 7C.

Taking off...

... with a little city view.

The OLC-GEN border clearly shows the superiority of a full fat region: The grey-brown colours are much more realistic than the yellow-white mixtures of OLC.

Descending...

... into Hanover.

And here we are, close...

... and a little less close.

Just in time for breakfast!

Fantastic set Gerold, you are keeping the developers on their toes with all these comparison shots.

They will all have to be vigilant as they don't know where you are going to spring up next.

I like the stork on the side of the Airbus.

Impressive first view too with all the lights.

To be honest I cheated wuth that last pic, it was taken on an earlier flight when taxiing back to the terminal after landing on the 27L.

A little challenge to the developers, but I know those who are here on the forum can stand it. Or better: They even master it.

The stork is the Lufthansa mascot, a crane. Only painted on this single A319.

As always I'm most impressed with the combination of real and sim!  I could look at these all day, and your trips all over the world Gerold are amazing.  

Thanks Jack, I also like to make these.

Arrgh! Too confusing! Which are real? Which are Sim?

 

Seriously, an amazing set of shots, Gerold! And it is impressive how close the sim shots are getting to the reality (or should that be the other way round <grin>)

Yes, indeed it is a pleasure how good reality matches the sim in some places.
