Re: GDs Fun Flights - Europe 2017

So first four sectors completed - all according to plan so flown in three new types :dance: First off was the longest and least interesting of the flight. HB-JMC a 2003 vintage Airbus A340-313 of Swiss. Left Jo'burg in darkness and it was still dark when we arrived Zurich so not much in terms of pic...

Re: GDs Fun Flights - Europe 2017

So finally almost my turn to get flying - busy packing - and waiting for HB-JMC Airbus A340-300 to come and collect me tomorrow.
