Welcome aboard Swiss International Flight 196 from Zürich to Peking, pardon, from Zurich to Beijing. Grüezi!

 

It never rains in Northern Switzerland... wait: it pours, man, it pours!

The Swiss controllers are a very relaxed concerning the dangers of crossing runways.

Takeoff into the... soup. Sorry I forgot the proper word that I've read 100 times here.

But soon we leave the clouds below us.

Alpine rocks scrape the clouds over Tyrolia.

Soon there's a hole in the grey blanket.

Mighty mountains, blue lakes and a green valley.

It's a harsh yet beautiful environment.

Let's bank to the left, towards Bavaria.

Grüßgott, Deggendorf!

Nihau, China! (already outside of the limits of Bavaria)

We enjoy the blue hour from the jump seat before we will be reaching Beijing eventually.

I hope you enjoyed the flight. :) (sorry no landing)

Nice try, but "Gaudi" or even "Riesengaudi" is so not Swiss German that it hurts :rolleyes: Well, on the other hand, to be honest, SWISS Airlines is also not Swiss anymore, then it is all ok :lol:

Thanks, Captain. Sorry about the rain. Just have to wait it out next time. ;D

Thanks for your nice words regarding the rain... well, what's the FO for, if not for performing outside checks in the rainy season? Seniority is everything... B)

You are right, but I don't know the Swiss German word for Riesengaudi. And to be fair, we've seen a lot of Bavaria on the way... B)

I love your flights Lars, are these real-world routes?  I really enjoy them.

Thank you much for commenting, Jack! I try to stick to the real routes and the plausible routes. :D This one is a real one.

Lars you know how I like flight reports like this. Great action, and great scenery, too. Now get us the final, too - usually these flights land in the morning light...

 

PS: Did you recognize I spotted you in Zurich before the rain started?

Thank you for your comment, Gerold, I'm glad that you like my trip. But the final was during the (very) blue hour of the morning, and I think that the dynamic lighting in my Beijing didn't work.

I'm quite impressed! Good catch in the right moment.
