Following an one-day strike at Lufthansa, the LH649 is seen resting on the apron; (would fly back to Frankfurt the next night).
I always loved the way the gears are retracted on a Tupolev; plus this powerful sound - truly a classic!
Greetings! Sorry I couldn't wave back, as my hands were busy trying to make a steady hold of the camera :)
