VIDEO Of Lufthansa’s D-ABYA Taking Off From Frankfurt Wearing The New Livery

On February 8, Lufthansa’s D-ABYA took off from Frankfurt for a day-long tour of German airports to show off the new livery design unveiled by the airline earlier in the week.

I was fortunate enough to be part of a photographer group that received special permission to be on the infield of the airport to catch her taking off.   This video captures the moments that she pulled away from Frankfurt.

As you watch the video, you’ll hear a slighty annoying ‘machine gunning’ noise.    That is my camera’s shutter going off while I was taking pictures.  I had a Go-Pro mounted on my flash-shoe so that I could take photos and capture video at the same time.

Enjoy!

One of the many surprises that awaited me in Frankfurt included a gift from Lufthansa of a Limited Edition desktop model of D-ABYA.   The 747-8i that was the first aircraft to carry the new livery design.   There’s also an A321 carrying the colors as well, but the 747-8i is the one that stands out for me.

The kit is not yet available but when it does hit the shelves it’s bound to become a fan favorite.    The model that I was given is a 1:400 scale and as I mentioned earlier, will be produced in limited numbers.    The model came packaged in a heavy duty box with thick foam protecting the aircraft.   In addition, a sturdy metal stand is provided to set the airplane on if you want it raised off the ground.

Here are a few shots as I was unpacking her….


The model came with a card indicating that this was number 201 of the Limited Edition

Safely packaged in heavy foam.   When unpacking, please watch for a tiny screw that is beneath one of the stand pieces.   The screw is used to assemble the stand.
