This time it’s the final one for sure! Thanks to an ever increasing weather forecast I managed to get to the airport one last time this year yesterday (contrary to what I said in my last topic). It probably wasn’t the most spectacular day at the airport including the fact that I had to change from car to train on very short notice what made me miss the Brussels Airlines Red Devils A320.
Nevertheless I got some good shots, for example of this TAP Portugal A320neo inbound from Lisbon. While neos used to only visit Munich so far, from now on, Lufthansa has finally based the first A320neos at its second base.
Not quite as new as the A320 but still freshly painted was this Lufthansa Cityline A319 performing a very short TOGA takeoff.
A new good reason to visit Munich airport on sundays is this little bird. Azimuth only started the Krasnodar-Munich route last week. With the second flight a week on Wednesdays, yesterday’s visit was only the third flight of this airline to Munich
A 757 from Iceland. It might seem completely normal for Munich but is actually a bit more special than one would think at the first moment. Instead of the regular 757-200, the Sunday flight was operated by a looooooong 757-300.
From very long to extremely short: while Icelandair brought an upgrade, UTair sticked to the usual 737-500 which already looks short even without comparing it to other planes.
A more modern look but another plane from Russia came with the visit of the S7 A321 wearing the carrier‘s new livery.
Another extraordinarily long plane left us to the US in form of this Delta 767-400
After quite some time at the northern runway which, from my point view, doesn’t really offer the greatest background but rather depicts how horribly ugly a winter can look without snow, we eventually changed to the southern runway for some arrivals just like this tiny A318 from Paris.
Another plane that recently received a new livery was this CRJ 900 that even got a new name so it is now named after the town right south of Munich Airport: Hallbergmoos
With sun already about to set, Norwegian‘s 737 promoting their bonus program departed Munich for Malaga again.
Another position change to enjoy the last day of the airport‘s Christmas market brought me back up to the visitor terrace where we witnessed several smokey engine starts. Since I couldn’t bring my tripod I had to use a very high ISO so sorry for the noise in this one but it looked to stunning to not share it.
I hope you enjoyed my last spotting topic this year - see you next year!
