To bring the successful German Olympic Team home in style, Lufthansa has dispatched their 747-8i (D-ABYA) to Seoul. Lufthansa flight LH713 scheduled for February 26 will fly the team home and at the same time bring the new look of Lufthansa to Seoul for the first time. If you recall, D-ABYA is the one of the first LH aircraft to sport the new livery design.
Normally, passengers and spotters in Seoul see the 747-400 during this time of year so the regardless of the paint on the plane, seeing the 748 in ‘ICN’ will be a treat for those of us who enjoy this kind of thing!
If you happen to be at the games or at least in Seoul and want to get a glimpse of the bird, the flight is scheduled to depart Seoul (ICN) at 1:05p and is scheduled to arrive in Frankfurt at 4:45p. If you want to catch her arriving in Seoul earlier on Monday, she’s due to land at 8:50a.
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.
