After having a few hours during my flights home yesterday I finally had a chance to screen through all of my 532 photos of D-ABYT. During this process I found a few more photos that I think you’ll enjoy.
If you haven’t seen my previous posts showing D-ABYT’s first taxi test and test flight, you can get caught up here:

As promised, here are a few photos that capture the moments soon after ‘YT’ returned from a successful inaugural flight at Paine Field today. With the way the winds were blowing she landed from the South while I was positioned at the north end of the runway about 9,200 feet from her touchdown, so apologies in advance for not having the best landing photos.
However, I think these photos show off her fantastic livery. Everyone that I spoke to today about her thought she was a beauty. As it stands now, we’ll see her head to Frankfurt on or about March 13. In the mean time she’ll take a few more test flights here before being certified for delivery.
If you missed my earlier post showing her departure, you can get caught up here and here.
First ever landing for YT – 9200 feet away!
