A short domestic flight today from Nuremburg to Frankfurt, Germany. The weather was fair so it was smooth flying to our destination.
Journey time +/-30 minutes.
After obtaining clearance to taxi we head towards runway 28
The control tower advises us to wait due to incoming traffic
Ascending at an angle of approximately 15 degrees to our initial assigned altitude of 9000 feet (FL90)
We continue our climb to our planned cruise altitude of 18000 feet (FL180). Mark, that co-pilot was suffering from air-sickness!!!
Having reached our cruise altitude, it's time to be spoilt with a cuppa (just look who's waiting at the cockpit door)
Nothing like a cup of coffee at 18000 feet!
The FMC system (L) the route being flown ® the approach / landing settings (input @flight preparation time)
Before you know it, we have started our descent and passengers have been advised to fasten their seatbelts
Lining up for our approach runway 25L (@250 degrees and on the left as there a multiple runways)
Our wheels are rolling on Frankfurt Airport as we make our way to the assigned terminal / gate
Always busy, busy, busy at these mega airports...
At our destination... hope you enjoyed the ride!
Thanks for looking.
PS. Let me know if you want me to do a specific route and I will take it under consideration.
Note - my activities are restricted to Africa, Europe & North America!
