Strikes are never fun, even if they do seem to be a way of life in certain European countries bonjour! but at least there was something for the ooglers of aircraft this time around. Namely a small fleet of Qatar A320’s, flying for British Airways who have been having a somewhat lenghty strike this summer.
No sooner had I complained about the lack of Brussels Airlines special livery visits to Copenhagen than I found myself seated on Rackham on the way back from Brussels to… Copenhagen!
Granted, the trip was not on her schedule, but the original aircraft had caught herself a
cold technical problem and this is where we ended up. It almost made up for the 45 minute delay.
Welcome to Wonderful Sweden! Where the pine trees stand tall, the people are friendly and The Yeasted Cake is an art form in itself. You won’t ever want to leave…
At least not until you discover the price of alcohol.
Brussels Airlines have some of the greatest special liveries around and I have been trying my best to photograph them all – no small feat when the pretty birds never, ever visit Copenhagen. We only get the standard versions up here. Luckily I have no problems spending time in Brussels, a favourite city of mine.
This time I managed to catch OO-SNF wearing the pretty spectacular “Tomorrowland” livery.
So many colours on one small aircraft. I love it.
Colourful engines and a (relatively) tiny heart on each wing tip, OO-TCT is a sunny sight on a rainy day. Even though it didn’t rain at all that day.
In 2011, celebrating 75 years of flying here and there, Aer Lingus decided to order a new Airbus A320 painted in the carriers 60’s livery. It was a good decision.
LN-RGL was the first Airbus A320neo delivered to SAS back in October 2016. Like a true Scandinavian aircraft she is registered in Norway, living in Sweden and a very frequent visitor of Denmark. Lately she has been spending a whole lot of time flying to Malaga and Palma de Mallorca, but that’s probably true for most Scandinavian aircraft in the summer. Especially when the weather is bad.
But it’s not all charter destinations, screaming children and drunk passengers. Just last week I saw her in London Heathrow, looking very shiny and relaxed as she flew past the rows of spotters waiting in the morning sun.
A shiny butt in the Swiss sunshine.
I thought the Airbus A320 would look beautiful and elegant no matter the livery.
Clearly I was wrong.
Ever since it was announced that WOW Air would take delivery of a shiny, purple Airbus A320neo in April 2017, I have been waiting
patiently for her to show up at CPH. A purple neo – she had to be the epitome of airplane beauty.
And she was! The first time I spotted her was from the windows of an aircraft, that had just taken me home from Brussels. I got quite excited and texted pictures to my Better Half with the coherent message “Look!! Neo!!” Because who doesn’t want a bunch of grainy pictures of a rain-soaked purple plane taken through a window? No one, that’s who.
She has been a frequent visitor of CPH since her delivery in april and I have plenty of rain-free purple photos now.
