10 day live feed – “An American journey” – Day 5 and 6

Here I am having breakfast at 9 am at Einstein Bros in one of the best metropolitan cities in America that I know. It got the greatness of New York, but it is more relaxed, more quiet and its location at the shore of Lake Michigan ensures a steady supply of fresh air. Yes, I am talking about Chicago, but you already know that I am here, because you have read yesterday’s blog post! Day 5 of “An American journey” It’s been a typical “cargo day”. I got up in the morning, showered and was just about to leave to for breakfast and shopping in order to make it back … Continue reading

So in I went and had a great grilled salad with chips and salsa. … Continue reading

10 day live feed – “An American journey” – Day 3

I haven’t told you the whole story of yesterday’s flight from Frankfurt to Atlanta yet, mostly because I was too tired after all the video editing of my departure capture and because the day had not ended, yet! So here is what happened: Arrival to Atlanta Our flight over the Atlantic was pretty smooth, but once over Canada it started shaking a bit. Due to the aerodynamics of the MD-11 you don’t feel it much in the cockpit and without any passengers in the cabin, we didn’t have to worry at all. We approached Atlanta from the north and initially follwed the DIRTY 3 RNAV arrival route via the “Snowbird” … Continue reading

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
