After some excessive topics from Innsbruck and special planes arriving at Munich for the Security Conference, I’m back with a quick topic from Munich today. El Al arrived with one of its 747s on a special charter flight from Tel Aviv so I once again used my lunch break to get a pic of this soon to be retired bird. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t very favorable for spotting so the quality is not as great as you saw it during the last few topics.
The charter flight performed by 4X-ELB, named Haifa, actually was the first plane to land after I arrived.
Shortly after, the runways were changed so I was able to capture some departing long haul planes lifting off in front of me. The first departure after the runway change was Lufthansa’s D-AIXG, an A350 in old colors departing for Delhi.
Another A350, this time operated by Singapore airlines, departed back to its home base in Asia.
Even though A350s have become a very common sight at Munich, there are still several long haul operations every day which are performed with 4-engined aircraft such as the A340-600.
Another 4 engine aircraft of course is the A380. In contrast to the A340-600 to New York, this plane to Miami performing flight LH460 is already wearing the new Lufthansa colors. Today actually was the first time I managed to take a picture of one of the repainted super jumbos. From the beginning of the summer schedule next sunday, the route to Miami will be downgraded again and the A380 will operate to LAX, Hong Kong and Beijing again.
