Most of the pictures from my Manchester trip are placed in a folder called “pictures that would have been good if it hadn’t been raining buckets.”
A6-EOS is proud of her many, many wheels.
Two completely different airlines. Bling Air (Emirates) vs. The Ultimate Low Cost Airline (Ryanair). And I’m sure it wouldn’t even be difficult to find customers who would happily fly both.
I haven’t flown either. Perhaps I should work on that in 2017.
Never was there a more anxiously awaited aircraft in all of 2016 than A6-EOP when she brought home my Better Half after a long business trip to the other side of the world.
No sooner had I taken the pictures before I hoofed it back to the airport. And not only because he brought back edible Chinese goodies.
The daily arrival of EK151, the only Airbus A380 to grace Copenhagen Airport with her presence, continues to be popular with locals. If I’m out spotting around noon it almost never fails: I’m sitting there, all alone, snapping pictures of arriving aircraft. But as soon as the A380 makes her presence known on the horizon, people start showing up. Big Bird arrives, and boom – I’m alone again.
Oh well. At least I have the planes to keep me company.
In every airport it was the same scenario, and A6-EOJ was seriously considering a restraining order against the jetbridges and their overly affectionate welcome-smooches.
This Monday Morning Aircraft is a big one – A6-EDI, a
beautiful spectacular, rotund Airbus A380 from Emirates.
Sunday afternoon she touched down on Danish tarmac for the first time ever in her 6 years of flying, greeted by a small crowd of Sunny Sunday Spotters. The daily arrival of the only A380 flying to CPH always manage to attract a few Copenhageners, especially on the weekends.
Even though she only stayed for around two hours, A6-EDI claims to have flown back home to Dubai with a newfound love of raw pickled herring and Danish butter cookies. Hopefully she will return soon for some Danish Smørrebrød.
The day his son came home, all decked out in the livery of a Low Cost Carrier, Frank sincerely hoped it was just a phase – even if he were a little jealous of the yellow tail with the pretty purple crown.
