Hi guys, I (Instagram: @moxipictures) went spotting with @Lolo31R (Instagram: @ljspotter) on Sunday and I wanted o share my best shots with you!
ANA’s R2D2 Livery (JA853A) on short final for 26R from Haneda:
Alitalia A320 (EI-DSW) seconds from touchdown with an interesting Jeep Renegade Livery from Rome Fiumicino:
Condor, which used to be Condor Deutsche Flugdienst, approaching 08L with the A320 D-AICA in the iconic Condor Retro Livery:
Austrian Airlines (OE-LBZ) and Lufthansa (D-AIPC) operated their Star Alliance Livery A320s from/to Munich on that day:
In the evening BA’s Olympic dove (G-EUPD) taxied down towards my lens on its way back home to London Heathrow:
The mighty A380 very close
One of Emirates’ huge A380 (A6-EEJ) fleet inbound from Dubai as EK49 (one of three daily A380 flights to Munich) touching down on 08L and taxing past to stand 113X:
The typical heavies seen at Munich as it is one of two Lufthansa hubs - A330-300 and A340-600 - Landing on both, 08L (D-AIHF, D-AIKG) and 26R (D-AIHB, D-AIHZ), holding short 26R (D-AIHE) and taxiing to 08L (D-AIKA) with the flight crew waving to us (D-AIHI):
My very first Eurowings pictures
With the start of the summer schedule 2017 Lufthansa started flights with its low-cost carrier Eurowings. As visible at the red part on the tail of D-ABZN many aircraft are leased from airberlin. It was the first time I saw Eurowings at Munich.
I like the livery of EW very much. Apart from D-ABZN also A320 D-ABDP visited Munich:
[details=Beautiful plane Cameron loves] Since the deliveries by Airbus weren’t on time for Qatar Airways they leased some A350’s from their partner LATAM resulting in South American planes flying from and to Munich on a daily basis at the moment. Since the planes weren’t painted in Qatar’s colors it’s a flight @Cameron doesn’t want to miss. Here you can see LATAM’s A350 with Qatar’s Registration A7-AMA right after pushback for it’s flight back to Doha:
[details=Some other visitors from abroad] Apart from the flights already mentioned, Munich is visited by a variety of airlines and airplanes. I captured flights by Swiss, United, Yangtze River Express, Saudia, Icelandair and Easyjet (and many more of course)
Swiss visited Munich with its Bombardier CSeries 100 HB-JBE on rotation LX1104/1105 seen here landing on 08L:
Around noon the time comes where all the flights to the US East Coast are leaving Munich such as these United flights bound for Chicago (N783UA) and Washington (N788UA):
Munich is also a destination for Icelandair’s Boeing 757 (TF-ISR) from Keflavik:
Next to the huge A380’s and A350’s operated by Qatar and Emirates Munich also gets a small visitor from the Mideast - Saudia flies to Riyadh and Jeddah on a regular basis as well as a seasonal flight to Medina. Here you can see Flight SV174 to Jeddah (HZ-ASG) preparing for departure on 08R:
Munich isn’t that famous for its cargo flights, but with FedEx, DHL, StarAir and many more such as this Yangtze River Express Boeing 747-400 (B-2437) the freight sector is constantly growing:
In the evening I was also able to spot the new Easyjet livery arriving at 26R from the UK on an A320 (G-EZPE):
