Remarks: This made the day for Frankfurt ATC interesting: approaching with a hydraulical problem (you can actually see through the wheel well) this aircraft blocked runway 07L for almost an hour. Fire engines were already in position and awaited the arrival. Everything went well but it made quite a mess during the rush hour. Some aircraft even had to turn around and change to runway 18 after having spent around half an hour on the holding point of runway 07L!
Shot almost a year ago on Fuji Provia 100F slide film.
Remarks: The absolute highlight of the day (which by the way is already over a year back)! After Olympics A300 blocked runway 07L due to a hydraulical problem this oldie decided to depart on runway 18 instead. Great sound, great machine, just marvellous! In the background the fire engines placed on the runway after Olympics problem aircraft landed can be seen. Fuji Provia 100F slide film.
Remarks: Wow, this is already over a year ago! Shot on slide film (Fuji Provia 100F) when nearly everybody else already switched to digital. The last aircraft on that very eventful spotting day for me taking off in the late afternoon. And what a great aircraft it is!
