You’ve probably clicked on this post and immediately wondered “Where in the world is Sylt? Well, let me show you:
So as you can see Sylt is situated west of Denmark but actually is in Germany! This island belongs to the North Frisian Islands which is a very small archipelago located in the very far north of the country.
Now that you know where Sylt is, let’s talk about the flights. I decided to go to from Zurich because I was in the mood to fly the A319 and I really like the SWISS livery. I flew there and back and the flight times were 1:15 and 1:19 respectively cruising at FL280 (they do it IRL too).
Morning departure from Zurich with the sun rising behind the Alps! ☀️
Overflying Zurich airport as we head north!
The flight goes by quickly and we’re already above Hannover!
We begin our descent as we pass Hamburg!
Nice landing on runway 32!
After spending the day exploring Sylt and the small town of Westerland, it’s time to go back home to Zürich.
Goodbye Sylt, see you soon! 👋
On the return flight we did pretty much the same route as on the way there, however we did fly closer to Frankfurt which gave us great views of the gigantism of the gigantic airport!
I was lucky as the winds were coming from the north which means I could land on runway 34. For those that don’t know, this approach is one of my top favorites as you fly over the Lake of Zurich when approaching. Check out this stunning base turn! 😍😍😍
And now, best for last: ending the day with a moonshot! 🌝
Welp, that’s it for today! I would really appreciate if you could take a sec to drop a like or a comment as I put a lot of effort into these photos.
