Back to the list
The weather on the airport was very unphotogenic today, but it should have been more than counterbalanced by a not often seen plane...
The wind was strong from west or southwest and runway 28 was in use. So I set off exceptionally to the gate at the treshold of rw 28 near Dvorska. First bigger plane, which came to my viewfinder, was Boeing 737-800 of Travel Service reg. OK-TVQ (without winglets). Till its departure only a small planes showed up. During take off the Boeing leaned a bit to the right due to the strong crosswind, but the rest of the take off procedure was ok. After the helicopter of Czech Police OK-BYB a high spot of the day came - Vickers VC10 C.1K of Royal Airforce reg. XV106. It was rather quiet during landing, but it showed up fully during take off.
After Ryanair's Boeing 737-800 (reg. EI-CSB) arrival we moved to our favourite spotting place near Herbst Aero; there we took photos of Ryanair taking off and then it came: departure of Vickers with nice smoke and noise effects. Last plane we photographed was departing Dornier 328 Cirrus Airlines D-CIRC, still with the nice smiley on its belly.
