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

Airliner World December 2015 article – Haulin’ Freight

I am very excited to announce that my first article has appeared in the world-renowned magazine Airliner World from the UK with the title “Haulin’ Freight”. It has always been a dream for me to publish there and many photos had already found their way to the magazine via my Airteamimages membership. Key Publishing that owns the magazine has also printed images from me in other publications before. Thinking hard on what to write about, it was soon obvious that I should tell the interested public about a typical flight on the Lufthansa Cargo MD-11F. Easier said than done! I didn’t want to invent something, so I had to wait … 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

MD-11 apron images at night

While editing some of my photos (I do about 2-10 per day usually) I came across a couple of shots of my beautiful MD-11 freighter that I wanted to share with you! I was on the ramp last winter to do some apron images at night and the MD-11 is always the star of such an event! I started out at sunset – you might have noticed that I am a big fan of sunset/sunrise photos and especially night shots! I just love it, when you get those colourful blinks and contrasts in an image and an airport is even more interesting during the night with all the lights shining … Continue reading

Qatar Airways Airbus A350-900 - last meters of taxiing.

First scheduled Airbus A350 flight world-wide arrives in Frankfurt!

When Airbus first started engineering the A350 back in 2004, it was more likely to be a modernized version of the A330 with new engines (like the ones the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is having). After low orders and lots of criticism, Airbus decided to design a completely new aircraft and announced the start of the A350 XWB program, which was announced at the 2006 Fanrborough Airshow. Since then the aircraft has come a long way and I was happy to spot one of the first examples at last year’s Berlin Air Show! It already wore hybrid colours of Airbus and Qatar Airways, the launch customer. This aircraft made regular appearances … Continue reading
