Have you ever asked yourself what is happening behind that locked cockpit door? Do you want to follow me to far-away places and exotic locations? Then join me to explore the fascinating world of a pilot photographer… My blog will give you some more insight into how we do things on the flight deck, tell you about my journeys around the world and will keep you updated to any developments on the site – of course my aircraft photos will also be presented here.

Instagram takeover!

Many of you might have already seen it – I took over Lufthansa Cargo’s Instagram account this week! I am in control of what is being posted there, which means you will be able to constantly follow me along my rotation this week! Our first stop was Mumbai in India and I have just arrived to Hong Kong. Tomorrow I will be flying to Ho-Chi-Minh-City (the former Saigon) and the day thereafter to Ashgabat in Turkmenistan. I will be posting from the aircraft, but also contribute a few layover images and food images 😉 To reach the Lufthansa Cargo Instagram account, you can simply follow this link: https://www.instagram.com/lufthansacargoag/ Be sure to … Continue reading

New wallpaper “A321 head-on”

I have been very busy lately, but not with flying! I have spent most of the past weeks working for our pilots associations – Vereinigung Cockpit in Germany, the European Cockpit Association (ECA) on the European level and IFALPA (International Federation of Air Line Pilot’s Associations) on a global scale. While this is always a great experience, it also means I am not flying that much. Therefore, I could not take that many new pictures. Nevertheless I am proud to announce that a new wallpaper for your phone is now available for download for FREE. I took this image of a Lufthansa A321-200 at Frankfurt Airport this June on a … Continue reading

Safety Card IranAir Boeing 727-100 back

Safety Card collection from Iran on EBAY!

The collecting of things is part of the human nature! Our ancestors had to collect all kinds of food, stones, building material… to survive. We still carry these genes in us and most people collect something! It is part of our nature. Being an aviation fanatic I collect safety cards (the little information cards in your seat pocket that tell you what to do in an emergency) and I know that many people do so, too. It is always a great reminder of a flight and a super-interesting hobby, because it tells you a lot about an airline, but also the mentality, culture, art of a country and (looking at … Continue reading

New Image gallery – SHARJAH

It has been a while, but I am very happy to announce that there is a new image gallery online! Many of you have probably heard of Sharjah Airport before and some might have visited it already. Sharjah is the neighboring emirate of Dubai, UAE and it does have its own airport that was once famous for old Soviet cargo aircraft. Things have changed a bit, but I was gladly able to visit the old aircraft boneyard recently and also included images of some of the more regular visitors to the airport. Here is a preview of what you will get in the SHARJAH Airport – a desert hub gallery: … Continue reading

Swiss CS100 HB-JBC Frankfurt - 2017-01-03 04

SWISS Bombardier CS100 at night

Swiss International Airlines from Switzerland has been a part of the Lufthansa Group for a couple of years now, but was allowed to keep its brand name and unique product. Nevertheless it came as a surprise to many that Swiss was to be the launch customer for the new Bombardier CS100 aircraft, given the fact that none of the other group airlines had ordered the type. While replacing older Avro Regional Jets, it also increases the number of passengers that can be transported by featuring a 125 seat layout (similar size to the Airbus A319). At the time of writing the CSeries has been in operation for more than six … Continue reading

Lufthansa Boeing 737-300 D-ABEC in Frankfurt 04

Bye-Bye Bobby!

As many of you already know, Lufthansa was the launch customer and most important client of the Boeing 737. Had the German airline not stuck to the project (taking 22 of the 30 -100s built), the most successful airliner of all time might not have made through its first year… Therefore it was very sad to see the era of 737 operation coming to an end after nearly 49 years of continued service. When I became a pilot I had the chance to join the ranks of 737 pilots, but never did as I decided for the A320. Yet, many of my training course colleagues became 737-skippers and I had … Continue reading
