Rolling down runway 18. Shot taken from Aussichtspunkt “Startbahn West” (Viewpoint "West Runway)


Overhead view of take off


View of the alps and Geneva, Switzerland from the cabin. You can see Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the alps which rises to 4,807.81 m (15,774 ft) above sea level. It is the second biggest mountain in Europe after Mount Elbrus.


Now flying over Barcelona, Spain with a view of the Pyrenees mountain range between Spain and France. Window shot also included.


Now flying over Agadir, Morocco. You can see the Atlas mountain range in the background. I think Toubkal is on the far right, with it being the highest peak in the Atlas mountain range at 4,167 metres (13,671 ft).


Flying over Laayoune or El Aaiún, Western Sahara. From here you can see Pico de las Nieves at 1,949 metres (6,394 ft) on the island of Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. If you squint your eyes you can also just about see Mount Tiede on the island of Tenerife, standing at 3,715 m (12,188 ft). Tiede is the largest mountain in the Canary Islands and the whole of Spain.


Now passing Cape Verde/Cabo Verde and you can see Pico do Fogo in the distance, an active stratovolcano, rising to a peak at 2,829 m (9,281 ft). View from cabin included


Crossed the Atlantic and now entering South America, flying past Recife, Brazil.


Now sunset and flying near Cachoeiro de Itapemirim
