Business trip and Summer break

It’s been a while since the last post, but there are 3 reasons for that.

First I was one week in Atlanta on a business trip. I flew from Vienna via London to Atlanta. I enjoyed a smooth ride with the Boeing 777-200 from British Airways over the Atlantic ocean. There also this perfect picture was taken. Its really a massive GE90 engine to be watched from the window seat 😉

Second, we enjoyed a week of family vacation in Italy.

And third, its hot, very hot in Vienna. For the last 2 weeks we had around 30-35°C each day. Not very refreshing in the non air-conditioned flight deck 😉

Mediterranean Tour 2018 – Leg 6 – Djerba [DTTJ] to Naples [LIRN]

The fifth flight is a 2 pilots flight again with Chris. It takes us to North Africa, to Tunisia.

It is mixed real time and timelapse mode.

VACC Austria Realops event. Rotation LOWW-EDDM-LOWW

On June 9th the Realops Event took place in Vienna. Therefore you could book Real Time slots from this day schedule from the Vienna airport. Outbound and Inbound. The event was hosted for the 10th anniversary of VACC Austria. Happy Birthday, again!
I flew a rotation for austrian virtual from LOWW to EDDM as OS117L and back to Vienna as OS118C

Video Capturing Setup

Back in 2016 I have started my streaming / capturing setup for some flight. During the month of usage I have changed and adopted a lot.

Since a couple of month I am running a stable configuration in terms of camera angle and the organisation of the picture. Below you can see the actual setup and a short description the 16 different information spots.

New Design on the blog

Since a couple of years I was running the same design on this blog. The most thing that was bothering me lately, was the limited space for bigger pictures. So I have searched and tried a lot themes. In the end I chose this one, direct from WordPress, the 2015 theme.

Very simple design and I can use larger picture sizes to show you more detail.

I hope you enjoy it. Comments are always appreciated.
