Exciting News! Just finished another flight from London Stansted (STN/EGSS) to Zakynthos (ZTH/LGZA) on a TUI Boeing 737-800. I came across some great sights including the whole of Corfu island when beginning my descend. First I headed southwards adove London city and then crossed the coast of Hastings where I made a turn towards south-east into the Mediterranean. This led to crossing northern Paris and into the Austrian/Italian alps where I encountered the amazing white tipped mountains, this is why I love flying to Greece. Finally we cruised above the Adriatic Sea and into the left coast of Albania and Greece where I descended at -700ft per minute before landing in Zante at runway 34. I started with quite a windy takeoff but the weather calmed down as I got further into the flight which played to my advantage when landing the 737. Personally I love the crossing of the beach when landing into Zakynthos which looks amazing due to the clear skys.
Just left Stansted at this pic, nice clear skys and view of airport during a windy takeoff
Crossing the coast of Hastings, being British every time is cross the english coast I Just want some fish and chips :)
Just gone past beautiful beaches near Boulogne in France
Crusing through the Austrian Mountains near Innsbruck, cities look great from up here.
Flying above the Adriatic Sea, quite boring if you ask me. However lovely blue scenery
Amazing Corfu Island to the left of the aircraft while descending
