We've got to fly around Israel, so it takes us 02:30. Otherwise it will be around 2 hours. Hopefully we'll get our clearances today so the flying times will get shorter.

Ankara on the way to Istanbul... by far the busiest airport I have ever experienced, really made Dubai seem like child's play...

Dylan, very nice indeed. Those outside cockpit shots are really cool. Nice shot of long finals into Istanbul and the bridge shot on departure is awesome :champion:

Istanbul has the perfect runway setup to accommodate simultaneous arrival/departures.

Really entertaining posts guys. It gives the armchair traveller a real insight into the life and working environment of a pilot on contract duties.

Tonight is a Beirut and back trip. We'll try to take some pics but being at night time I'm not expecting any good shots.
