On the 7. January I had to return home and there was a lovely tail parade around Terminal 5 of Stockholm-Arlanda Airport (ARN), consisting of airliners from Norway, Iran and Russia (left to right) ....
.... a better view of the Aeroflot A 320
.... and the Iran Air airliner
.... on the other side of the terminal waits this colourful Boeing 757 from Icelandair for its guests. Reykjavik is sure a destination for a New Years Eve party in the near future for me
.... don't worry, here's no engine burning. They are just de-icing this SAS bird, getting the full load.
.... and when everything's done, she's ready for another trip
.... I really love the look of the airliners of Norwegian with their red noses. That's why I call them "Rotkäppchen". Many of them have also a great tail art of scandinavian heros. Here's a Boeing 737 with Kirsten Flagstad
as tail art, the norwegian opera singer. She's also on the 100 Norwegian Kroner note.
.... another Norwegian Boeing 737 with Karen Blixen
, the danish author, who wrote "Out Of Africa". I'm sure everyone of us remembers the movie with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.
.... towing service for another Norwegian 737 with a true norwegian national hero as tail art, Otto Sverdrup
, the artic explorer, to be mentioned together with Fridjof Nansen and of course Roald Amundsen
.... a Lufthansa A 320 waiting on a sunny Stockholm winter day
.... coming from my beloved Riga is this little ATR from Air Baltic (Latvia) taxiing towards the terminal
.... a long way from home comes this A 320 from TAP Air Portugal
.... hey you in that Bobbycar, look behind you!
.... another A 320, here from Pegasus (Turkey)
.... and here is "Alvid Viking", a Boeing 737-600 of the SAS, who brought me home again after 10 fantastic days in the swedish capital
.... and finally some inflight impressions
Thanks for flying with me, I hope you've enjoyed it.
Always happy landings!
