FRA today, Fresh Pictures (3hrs old)
« on: August 13, 2011, 03:22:37 PM »
Hello all!!

I had been on a 45 minute guided tour on Frankfurt International Airport today with a hop to the visitor's terrace afterwards. Sadly the photos from out of the bus have mirrorings in it or were in bad light, but most of the ones off the terrace were pretty decent.

Here comes a line-up of my selected highlights. (All uploaded with ImagesHack.us)

Lufthansa B747-400 at gate




Singapore Airlines (Star Alliance Special Paint) B747-400 at gate




The same Singapore Airlines B747-400 at "position and hold" waiting for Takeoff clearance as SQ025 (LH9762) [to WSSS|SIN]




Thai International Airways B747-400 being towed to gate




Vietnam Airlines B777-200ER being towed to gate (in Background you can see an A320 (or A319 hard to tell) of Air France and a B737-300 of Lufthansa and behind the AFR is a
Bombardier Dash8-Q400 but I can't tell which airline from Luxair (thanks, Dave) )




Scandinavian Airline Systems B737-600 push back from aileron position [leaving as SK4752 to ENGM|OSL -Oslo Gardemoen Airport] (In Background left is a SAS MD-81
[becoming SK1683 to EKCH|CPH - Copenhagen Airport] and Background right is a Air Canada 767-300(ER))




China Eastern A330-200 (later to depart as MU220 to ZSPD|PVG - Shanghai PuDong Airport); (in background United Airlines B747-400 [UA941/LH9150 to KORD|ORD - Chicago O'Hare]; at the right side the tail of another B777-200ER Vietnam Airlines)




Icelandair B757-200 (with Winglets) coming in from BIKF|KEF - Keflavik airport (In background from left to right: A330-200 Air China being towed (to be seen on the last picture again); Lufthansa B737-300; Spanair A320; Air Canada B767-300(ER) [only its nose though])




Photo-series of a Lufthansa B747-400 landing (with a very smooth touchdown) [Couldn't be bothered to also list the other planes on these photos including their destinations :P ]














Last but not least upon leaving from the SkyTrain a picture taken over several planes standing at the gate.
From bottom to top:
Winglet of a Condor B767-300; PrivatAir B737-800; Air China A330-200 [to later depart as CA966 to ZBAA|PEK - Beijing Capital] ; Condor B767-300; Iran Air A300-600 [IR720 OIIE|IKA - Tehran Imam Khomeini Airport]; Tail of a Lufthansa B747-400 (left side); Air Berlin A320; Air Transat A330-200 [TS190 from CYYZ|YYZ - Toronto Lester Bowles Pearson Intl.]; at the right side on the aileron: Air Canada A330-300 in Star Alliance Paint [to later depart as AC877/LH5466 to CYYZ|YYZ - Toronto Lester Bowles Pearson Intl.] ;




I hope I got all the types all right. If an error slipped through, let me know so I can correct it. I hope you enjoyed it :)

cheers,
Jona L.

Good pictures,

FWIW the Dash8 in the fifth picture is Luxair by the looks of it.

That would also fit by time and flightplan... thanks for the hint :)

And well, the quality could be better but all I have is a several years old Sony Cyber-shot with 3x optical zoom and 4.1MegaPixels so not a number one camera for that Job :P

cheers,

technically it's just Toronto Lester B. Pearson, but thumbs up for doing your research. :P Also, did I see an SAA A346 in the backround during that touchdown shot? And where was the AC B763 going to (and if you say CYYZ, that's just lame. :laugh:)

I was just there for a couple of hours, I mus check if I have some more good ones from DUS, CGN, STN etc... so yet sorry, VJC, ut we will see!!

Austin... you should know that I know that by heart as you know about my nicknames for aircraft (destinations are name giving and if the airport has a "name" the second plane is named after that)
Can't tell that 763 as I don't know the schedule for that one as it didn't depart while I was there.

I think it is SAA at the parking space --> waiting position for a later departure, there was also a TG A343 and some Eritrean plane but those are not on the shot... as I said, Austin, my dear:
[Couldn't be bothered to also list the other planes on these photos including their destinations  :P ]

Okay, I searched all my files... currently 51 more picutres are being uploaded to imageshack.us . These are the best ones of my library...

I will post them here not too far to go, but I will need some time to name the types correctly, etc. (loads of typework :P )

So you can expect them maybe tonight if not tomorrow evening... must see when I find the time.

cheers for now,
Jona L.

How far do these planes have to back taxi after landing.  It looks like that 744 is half way past the terminal at touch down.

How far do these planes have to back taxi after landing.  It looks like that 744 is half way past the terminal at touch down.

The visitor's terrace in FRA is currently on Terminal 2 (due to a building site) where only crappy airlines dock at (all the non-star alliance stuff). Runway 25L/R begin about 60-100m before the LH B744 touches down. The taxi time in FRA can (up to your RWY and terminal position) be up to 25 minutes, usually when they go down on 25R Lufthansa heavies taxi 10-15 minutes to gate (if you have to get to Terminal B you have at leat 20 minutes up to how long the pilot needs to stop). From Terminal 2 to RWY18 ("Startbahn West" in North-South direction which is only used for takeoffs) you may need 30-35 minutes.

It just looks like halfway down the airport...

cheers,
Jona L.

Where are all the 752s flying to EWR???  I must've missed them.

GREAT SHOTS!  I am going to try to take a picture of the Saudi royal family's 747sp and another Arab leader's plane (a 742) at KCLE when they come back again.  I was told that the one a/c (Syrian 742??) owes the airport 250,000 for fuel.

Looks like all the Arab leaders are getting ill and are flying to go to the Cleveland Clinic.

Which B757? I only had the one UAL at CDG...

thanks for the flowers :)

250k for fuel... must be 742 that gruzzels so much ;D

Is the Cleveland hospital so great or has such a good name that they come there??

Whoops... that one slipped through ;D

[EDIT: Corrected :) You just overlook these slight differences when you go through 50 pictures... :-[ )

cheers and good night (00:10AM... another 20 hr day *yawn*)
