of course it comes as a shock for most of you, but I’ve been spotting once again this week (well, actually that’s not completely accurate but more on that later). With two specials, the A340-500 of the Royal Thai Air Force and a Canadian Airforce P3 Orion announced I decided to skip my data bases lecture and go to the airport. Spoiler: I got neither of the two since I had to leave for other appointments rather early. I nevertheless got a few pics I thought you might like.
On Wednesday, quite a few bizjets operated at Munich, such as this Vistajet Challenger.
A bit bigger and also brand new (delivered a few weeks ago, so not as brand new as it’s IF double): Singapore‘s A350-900
While a good share of the fleet has already been repainted, Munich (due to the configuration of these planes) still gets Etihad‘s 777s in old colors. If you want to see a new livery here, you have to wait for one of the 787s that are also regularly visiting us.
Speaking of new colors - since Thomas Cook went bust, Condor is now operating on its own and the rights on the brand of former Thomas Cook went to Chinese Fosun Group which makes it necessary to rebrand the entire Condor fleet (this will be done by March 2020). D-ABUE arrived from the Caribbean being one of the first 10 planes to receive the adjusted scheme with Thomas Cook titles covered and the sunny heart replaced by the iconic condor.
Another bankrupt airline still makes some undercover appearances in European skies thanks to Eurowings. I guess all of you recognize what airline this plane belonged to before it was taken over by Eurowings.
While we are in the topic of bankruptcies, why not have a look at this A319 operating for the most famous zombie in the skies: Even though being on the edge of bankruptcies for quite a few times, Alitalia is still alive.
Another A319 but this time with more money - Who would say no to this kind of travel? Personally, I think this would be kind of the smallest bizjet I would buy since fitting in smaller ones doesn’t seem feasible at 1.95m.
You know, fitting in something like this 👀 not a Good idea if one is too tall for a CRJ haha
From new liveries now back to something older - TUNISAIR‘s 737-600 arriving from Djerba
Before I left something big and smokey appeared at the horizon: Just a tiny Sikorsky CH-53 crossing the airport
Hope you liked these pics! Also, stay tuned for more (and more special) plane pics very soon since Wednesday wasn’t my only spotting trip this week.
