Back to the list
Last trip of this year was planned on the route Bratislava - Londýn/Stansted - Brno, mainly because we wanted to use Brno-Turany Airport as travellers.
With two colleagues we set off with night train to Bratislava. We awaited SkyEurope's Boeing 737-500 for the flight, but B737-300 HA-LKS was deployed instead. We departed before sunrise from rwy 04 and headed for STN; the sunrise was then visible as a reflection on engine.
On Stansted Airport we were welcommed by relatively nice weather, but also by lack of spotting places. We stayed next the terminal building for a while taking photos, but planes were too far from us. We went early to the security check and then to the building with departure gates, where we took some photos mainly of Ryanair planes.
For us, there was Ryanair's Boeing 737-800 EI-CSJ (unfortunately without nice signs and without winglets). We were checked-in on-line day before, so we were boarding among first passengers and we could choose our seats. The flight was again without any problems, above Europe there was very nice weather without clouds, so the visibility was almost limitless. Overflying Prague we started our descent and after one and half hour flight we landend safely on rwy 10 of Brno-Turany Airport. We taxied to the appron near new terminal and stopped next to a Karthago Airlines plane. After getting off the plane, we took few photos on appron and went to passport check.
At the end, I must say, that Stansted Airport is very spotter-unfriendly, only place where you can take photos of landing planes is near treshold rwy 23 and is reachable only with a car.
