10 day live feed – “An American journey” – Day 1

Today I will be starting a project that I haven’t done before – I will report from a rotation that covers four American countries in 10 days live. After every flight I will give you an update on what happened, what I did and there will be, of course, lots of photos and images so that you can see the world from my perspective. I will take you from Frankfurt to Atlanta in the United States and then further to Chicago, Mexico City, via Quito to Bogotá and then again to the states to Dallas, before I had back to Europe (first to Manchester and then Frankfurt). Day 1 of … Continue reading

After spending the whole week trying to get the bloody thing to … Continue reading

Let’s try to build a better world together and make … Continue reading

Standby – Day 2 and 3

As I expected nothing much happened during the days of my standby. I spent the first night in a low-priced hotel with some Thai food from the airport and checked out really late the next day. After a good rest, I was refreshed and ready for any task that lay ahead, but there weren’t many… As the weather outside was brilliant, I decided to go out on the apron to take some photos! There was only one MD-11 sitting around and I took the chance to take some “creative” photos. After that, I was waiting for another aircraft to arrive (four hours later) at position 216. And what a coincidence … Continue reading
