A tribute to Simon & Garfunkel

Recommended Posts

When I boarded for this supply flight in Arlanda the weather seemed so fine.

But there were loads of load to load, and during this time a hazy shade of winter appeared!

Flying over the clouds usually is no problem, ...

... giving even sights to interesting structures like the Kaitumälven river.

But after the initial approach into Kiruna...

Good to see the runway, finally. Good to ignore the EICAS messenges, also finally.

Nice winter trip .... Which song of Simon & Garfunkel ? :huh: :)

 The song's name is "A Hazy Shade Of Winter":)

I am a big fan of Simon and Garfunkle and also of Paul Simon as a solo.

Thank you John. The song really came to my mind during the flight. And I was quite happy to see the runway for a manual landing...

Some warm shorts and a few pallets of whisky probably also do good.

See below, Jean Marc. The Bangles have done a good remix as well.

Cool shots Gerold, I loved the EICAS messages.

You got the message, Jack. I was a bit confused when these all popped up, but... autoland was not intended anyway. The autopilot was turned off by the pilot manually. The fuel reserves were set to 15.5 tons, as for an intercontintal flight, but this was a different one. So I really could ignore the messages!
