British Airways flight A685 - Innsbruck [LOWI] - London LHR [EGLL]

Hey everyone! Earlier today I took a flight from the middle of the Innsbruck, to London! With amazing views climbing out of the alps, to scenes of the German, Belgian and French landscape, this flight has everything to offer! This 1hr 30 minute flight is a MUST DO as you climb out from deep within the alps, ending up in the capital of the world! With British Airways operating this flight 5 times per week on the A320, I decided to go along for the ride, and get some nice shot along the way!

  • Starting off straight into the thick of it - Here we are lining up on Rwy 26, ready to blast on out of here!

  • V1… Rotate! Our high throttle setting (due to the short runway and high altitude) gave us more than plenty power to rocket out of the mountains - nothing beats this winding departure!

  • My favourite shot yet! Really taking in the views here as we rotate up over and away the mountains, off to London!

  • Just left the alps! The fog really starting to build up as we fly over south-western Germany, around 1 hour left on the flight at this point as we approach our cruise of FL380!

  • Jump forward 40 minutes… and we’re crossing the Channel! About to begin our VNAV decent via the LOGA2H STAR, I couldn’t miss getting a glimpse of the dutch coastline!

  • Final approach - the most EXCITING part of the flight! Coming in at about 141 knots with an 11 knot crosswind and minimal visibility, it wasn’t easy getting her down, but we go ahead with our stable approach!

  • Aaaand touchdown! Another smooth -139fpm touchdown - despite the shaky conditions, doing it the BA-Way!

  • And finally, what better way to wrap off a LHR arrival than with a nice T5 BA Lineup?! However… there is one plane ruining the shot, can anyone spot it?!

That’s all folks!

Wow! I love the really fun camera angles - my favourite is the close-up of the wing and R engine with the mountains low in the background.

Will definitely be looking out for future posts of yours! Keep it up!

Have a great rest of your day!
