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

Lufthansa Boeing 747-8 D-ABYJ at Frankfurt Airport

Inside the Lufthansa Boeing 747-8i

On one of my recent trips, I had the pleasure of flying on-board the Boeing 747-8i – the latest jumbo jet generation! Just before the flight from Buenos Aires’s Ministro Pistarini International Airport (better known as Ezeiza International EZE/SAEZ) to Frankfurt on the longest flight in the Lufthansa network, I was able to snap a few images of the cockpit and cabin. Cockpit The first thing I always notice when entering a 747-cockpit is, how small the windows are! Of course, I am spoiled by the MD-11 and the jumbo skippers tell me it is not that bad once seated… On the other hand it is much longer than most other … Continue reading

Aviation calendars now available on Amazon

This year I am offering three different calendars with dedicated editions for Airbus, Boeing and MD-11 aircraft. It has been a great joy creating these calendars and I am very happy that they are selling fast! All three calendars were available from my website right from the beginning and each order has been prepared with lots of love and care by myself or my little helper at home. From now on you will be having the option of getting a calendar via Amazon as well, which might more cost effective for some buyers. The problem I as a small entrepreneur have, is that I will never be able to match … Continue reading

BOEING Aviation Calendar 2016 about to be delivered!

99 years after the Boeing company was founded, I have come up with a unique BOEING Aviation Calendar 2016 in order to celebrate 100 years of Boeing next year! After designing a MD-11 calendar for the third time in a row, I felt that it was finally time to do something new. Over time I have collected a fair number of Boeing related aviation images and with the help of a few fantastic photographers I have come up with an aircraft calendar that I really love. Giving all my calendars (which includes the Airbus Aviation Calendar 2016 as well) a unified look, there have been some adjustments to previous MD-11 calendars to give them an even … Continue reading

10 day live feed – “An American journey” – Day 2

Here is what happened on Day 2 of my “An American journey” 10 day live feed This morning I got up at 4 am, showered quickly, put on my uniform and left the hotel at 04.45 to walk over to the Lufthansa Cargo base, which was only 20 minutes by foot from where I stayed. The first aircraft approaching Frankfurt to land at 5 am sharp passed over me, the sun rose on the horizon and like always I was really excited to go flying again! It was pretty quited in the briefing room (you could say deserted – who would want to get up this early for work on … Continue reading
