Last week I spent several days in Europe to attend the Austrian Grand Prix as well as to make stops in Munich and Frankfurt for a bit of plane spotting and LH Business.
Frankfurt was a disappointment due primarily to the lack of progress on their Observation Deck renovation. I only had a few hours free in FRA so I couldn’t go to my favorite spotting site along the North-South runway.
Munich however was fantastic. Weather cooperated nicely and with large white and grey clouds to act as a backdrop, it provided for a solid spotting session. And thanks to Munich, I was able to capture about 26 LH aircraft that were missing from my ‘spotted list’. I am now only 6 LH aircraft away from personally spotting the entire mainline fleet. I suspect the missing 6 will require a bit of stalking and hunting on my part later this year when I return.
Munich’s Besucherpark offers a great view of their runways, and with winds out of the west, creates the opportunity to catch departing flights as they take off. The large viewing hill (more like a pyramid) puts you above the airport and gives a great prespective. Admission is only €1 and is open 24 hours…..a pretty good value!
So for part 1, here are 12 images that I though turned out rather well and include a diverse range of liveries. Part II will focus a bit more on the LH fleet.
