Time flies so fast that I almost did not get the chance (or find a moment) to write a quick post about a flight with a friend of mine in Germany a couple of weeks ago.
We meet met at Bonn-Hangelar airport (EDKB), not far away from Bonn on a very warm August day.
We flew the C172, it’s a great aircraft, and I always liked to fly it.
Definitely one of the highlights was the flight around Cologne and to see the Cathedral from above. 👇Exactly 2 years ago I’ve visited the city and stood just next to it. Now also the view from above…
Another highlight was the low pass at Köln-Bonn airport (EDDK). After the initial request, we got vectors (even though that we were flying under VFR rules) to perform the low pass not bellow 1.000 feet on the RWY 14L.
After the low pass we continued to Düsseldorf. Beautiful and green countryside, however it was a bit dry because of the heat.
On our way back to Hangelar we saw also this nice castle (Schloss Drachenburg).
Well. I have decided to my make my second compilation of my flights. As I’ve found music that I loved, and thought it would be great in the video, I started to edit it, and here it is: my second compilation: Up in the air.
I hope you’ll enjoy it! I would be thankful for any good ideas (or send me a link of yours if you have one…).
In the past I used to fly more Piper, but in the last time I am starting to like to fly more and more the Cessna 172. Why? It’s because I like to take pictures (actually my GoPro’s are doing this job for me), and I like how the images look like. I try to use the suction mount on different places of the fuselage to ensure that I am definitely the first one in taking an image of Tenerife from this angle from an airplane… And I like to edit them. Even in such a short one hour flight around the island it is always a different story, a new experience, new views… And the Cessna is pretty photogenic :-). What do you think? Let me share with you some of images from my last flight with Cessna… Safe landings!
