Departure from RWY 7L
note the blue on the upper side of the windshield
Rotating away from 7L
Shortly after departure from 7L
arriving on rwy 25R while leaving some unfriendly clouds behind..
The busy day at FRA has just begun and here comes the first wide-body on rwy 25L
I always loved the way the gears are retracted on a Tupolev; plus this powerful sound - truly a classic!
good long body, hard to cover even with a wide-angle lens
approaching rwy 25L
the flight CA431 from Chengdu is heading to the terminals, while LH445 from Atlanta is slowing down on rwy 07L
flight LH8455 to Almaty
