After the holidays I took a trip from my hometown to the “big“ city up north, Hamburg. The airport sees quite a few flights with many different carriers and offered the opportunities for many firsts in spotting for me!
First of was the unexpected D-AIDV, Lufthansa‘s retro A321, on its rotation from/to Munich:
Also at the airport was the HB-JCK one of SWISS‘s A220s, on its rotation from/to Zurich, overtaking an Emirates B777 for a quick takeoff back to Switzerland:
And here’s the big one, the Emirates B777, which made the spotting terrace shake upon engine start:
Also a very welcome first for me was a close up of Lufthansa’s new livery, first on an A319…:
Another first was the British Airways A320NEO, showing off its new, bigger engines being raced by an Eurowings A320:
Before departing to the north for the hop to Heathrow:
Slowly the sun set over Hamburg and it came the time for nightshots.
First one of the rarest catches of the trip, a Rossiya A319:
As it was getting darker it was also time for the taxi lights, as seen here on one of Eurowings’ (well rather Germanwings’) A319s:
Finishing up the topic are two close up terminal shots, of an Eurowings A320:
And probably my favourite, a Lufthansa A321 featuring the stunning new livery!
