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

The world at night – new image gallery online!

It has taken me a while, actually way too long, to start updating my website. I had been planning to put image galleries online for months, but there was always something else that needed to be done. With only 10-12 days at home per month, it is hard to please everyone – the family needs you, tasks around the house/flat/garden/car… have to be managed, the calendar sale needed to be organized and my work for the various pilots associations had to be carried out. In between you are supposed to relax and recharge the batteries again! I now have a whole off week after working endlessly at the beginning of the month, as … 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

MD-11 Aviation Calendar 2016 in the printing press!

It is finally ready – the world’s best and only McDonnell Douglas MD-11 Aviation Calendar for 2016! As many of you will know this is already the third edition of this calendar and it sold out completely last year – so you better be quick to get one… There have been many adjustments to give the calendar an even better look and the dates now include the last days of the previous month and the first days of the next month. As you know, I am very much committed to saving the environment. Therefore all emissions created in the course of the production process of the calendars have been set off by ClimatePartner. … Continue reading

Grand opening of my photo exhibit at Hannover Airport

I was very excited when I drove to Hannover Airport last Wednesday and even felt a little uneasy – my first photo exhibit was about to open its doors to the public and I wasn’t sure if people would like it… A while ago I was approached by the marketing team of airport. They had a spare room that they used for functions and meetings before and wanted to turn that into an exhibition room as part of their “Erlebniswelt”. The Erlebniswelt is great for kids as they learn more about aviation and how flying works and at the end is the access to the viewing platform on top of … Continue reading

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

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
