Welcome on board!

Welcome on board and thank you for checkin-in with me! My name is Felix Gottwald and I will be taking you to far-away locations with this website. Join me in the cockpit, as I travel the world on the MD-11 aircraft of Lufthansa Cargo. Follow me to airports around the globe and view photos and videos taken during my trips.

Get to know me

I will be trying to show you what it is like to be a commercial freighter pilot and why I love this job so much! Take your seat in the cockpit with me and follow along as I travel the world. You will find many answer to your questions in the FAQ section of this website, but I also want to hear from you. Drop me a line and let me know what you want to see on the site. You can also comment on all my blog entries!


I have been creating the one-and-only MD-11 calendar in the past and there are more calendars to come for 2016. All other images and videos can also be licenced for use as prints or for your online portfolio. I have supplied companies around the world and even have my own photo exhibition at Hannover Airport this year. More information on where I have been featured is available on the “about me” page.

Please enjoy browsing the site and I hope you like the images and videos presented here.

Happy landings – Felix Gottwald
