Today I was bored so I decided to do some spotting at today’s busiest airport, Istanbul. There were some very buttery landings, and even an emergency landing, so I hope you enjoy!
Also: there was a 20kt crosswind so don’t blame any of these pilots for off centerline landings. I probably couldn’t do much better :)
A Nordwind 777 inbound from LGAD
A Qatar Airways A350 absolutely buttering on arrival from Doha
Two Turkish A350’s holding short with an American 777 taxiing in the background
A TUIfly 737 about to land after contacting ATC about a fuel emergency
And finally, an Asiana A350 rotating away from Istanbul.
I hope you enjoyed these pictures! If you were there around 0930Z, I might have seen you, so let me know! Also, let me know if you liked these pictures, Thanks for stopping by :)
