There are many reasons we all get into flight simulation, but one thing we can all agree on is our love of aviation. I myself go spotting on occasion, although not nearly as much as I used to as a teenager. It is always amazing to see aircraft nonetheless, I just tend to fly on them more than I go spotting!
For those who don’t know, I live in England. We are lucky to have some of the most amazing aircraft flying into some of the most amazing airports here, so I thought I would share a few photos from London City I took a few days ago for those of you who cannot be in the UK to see them! I did not have any intention of going spotting, but I was there and, well, who can resist right?
P.S, I don’t bother to edit any of my photos!
Lufthansa Cityline E190. The aircraft took off in mere seconds. Full thrust and a light load has that effect. Every time you see a takeoff at City, the verticle speed of the aircraft departing is truly amazing!
Or the sound it is not supposed to make! You probably know this but the “Q” stands for “Quiet” as Bombardier tried to make the Q400 quieter than its earlier counterparts. Great shots btw, LCY is somewhere I would like to spot at because of all the buildings around. You can definitely get some good vantage points from on top of them!
They have both the E190 and E195, the E190 for routes to airports with steep approaches, the E195 on low demand routes or in addition to their daily service with other aircraft. Air Dolomiti, a Lufthansa subsidiary, also operates the E190 and E195 in their own livery.
