Remarks: Beeing towed to its final parking position at Ballenstedt near the GAT and restaurant for the next two years. Later it will be moved to Wernigerode by street to join the aircraft museum "Luftfahrtmuseum Wernigerode" who bought the Transall after 40 years in service for 30.000€. Also in this picture visible helicopter D-HIKO.
Remarks: My third approach to Skiathos runway 02 while arriving from Vienna for the 2012 holidays. Sitting on left side and overviewing Skiathos New Port, Old town and at the far right the street to the threshold 02 and "Cafe Amaretto". Just 60 seconds to go until touchdown.
Remarks: Seen here arriving from Landsberg/Lech (ETSA) for its last spectacular final approach to Ballenstedt. The second last touchdown was just 30m before the threshold of runway 27 and even beyond the street number 1362 while kicking of some dirt of the roadside. After bumping up again the Transall landed safely the last time and needed half of the runway only to stop. Also note the the very close aviation enthusiast at the north side. Some of them got the wing rushing over their heads. Have a view to following link:
