I guess also Germany, because of the Lufthansa which landed often. EDDF (Frankfurt) or EDDM (Munic) are often Lufthansa.

I know UK based airliner pilots who not only wave back, but on their days off grab a camera and flask and do a bit of spotting themselves!

Nowadays as a pilot we better wave back, we don’t wanna be on the Internet with a grumpy face :|

Bump time.

Love this

Always. especially to the ramp guys. We are al, a friendly bunch. Well, most of us. Ha

On 3 occasions I’ve used my lights(daylight) to say hi while flying 1-2000ft above on the same flight path coming from the opposite direction and only one had the chance to flash back saying hi :)

Stick the finger up at him LOL

Quiet a few I know do that.

Some still instruct in your local general aviation airports

Let’s test this out.
