Remarks: Approximately half way through our 270 degree turn on departure from runway 16 on board HB-IOC - the Swiss A321 and on our way to Lisbon. Looks almost like lined up to land on runway 32, if I was sitting in the cockpit. Note the usual rush for departures on runway 16 around midday. I fondly remember my first visit to ZRH in 2000 when the place was packed with MD11s. Also those "E" gates were nothing more than a few holes in the ground at the time.
Remarks: Shot from Swiss A321, HB-IOC - which has just taken off from runway 16 and completing a 270 degree turn above the airport to head west to Lisbon. Note the Swiss A330, HB-JHD just lifting off runway 16 and a company A320 lined up on runway 28.
Remarks: During weekends, runway 28 is usually in use for landings after 8pm. Light is perfect until sunset. Besides some SWISS A32X's and Avro's also the mighty Emirates Boeing 777 is arriving during this time period. The position allows some nice shots as the aircrafts are already quite low when they overfly the fence. It's about a 15 mintutes walk from the terminal building.
