Not such an everyday flight

Hey! Welcome or welcome back to a few new screenshots of mine…


Today’s flight brings me from a nice airport called Nice Côte d’Azur to Dublin, and as always, I have some information for you:)


Nice Côte d’Azur (LFMN) directly translates to ‘Nice blue coast Airport’, if only the coast was actually blue in IF ):
Nice airport is France’s third most used airport, with it being one of Air France’s operating cities and one of easyJet’s HUBs, handling 14,485,423 passengers in 2019. The class Bravo airport is located just seven kilometres west to the city center.
Nice airport was used as early as 1900, with a few airshows starting in 1910, it became quite a popular attraction for the population near or in Nice.
In 1918, the first flight took off from Nice Côte d’Azur, a postal flight, headed for the Corsica: a French island located in the Mediterranean, south of France.
In 1920, Nice airport started becoming a little more popular, with interest from the Air Ministry and a flying club starting up.
Nice Airport definitely played a part in World War Two, being used by Air Force.
In 1944, Nice Airport got an upgrade, making a hardened runway. This made it capable of accepting various forms of air traffic. As a result of this upgrade, Air France started rotations to and from Paris, becoming a very popular rout very quickly.
From 1950 onwards, everything was looking great for Nice Côte d’Azur Airport, with runway expansions, a lot more passengers each year and then a second runway being built.
In 1987, a new terminal was built, allowing for even more passenger capacity.
Now, Nice Côte d’Azur Airport doesn’t have a lot more room for expansion due to Nice being very close to the airport. However, passenger numbers are still rising yearly.

Following LFMN’s famous runway 04L SID


Already a while later, we are climbing out over the French Alps


Fog closes in the valley, gives a rather nice effect:)


After over two hours of flying, we’ve intercepted runway 10’s glideslope at Dublin Airport, putting down the landing gear for landing. A beautiful sunset awaits


Throttle is on idle, spoilers are about to be extended, all is looking good. Now that’s a beautiful touchdown after this truly amazing flight


Engines are shut down and the beacon light has been switched off, this concludes a definite treat of a flight


That wraps it up! What was your favourite picture?
