[PICS] Antonov Meeting at Leipzig Halle Airport

Postby felixomat » 30 Nov 2016, 18:51

Hi friends.

Following my flight on the Antonov 22 back in September 2016 as well as my flight on the Antonov 225 almost two years ago for my company, there finally was the unique chance to see both cargo giants together at one place. Obviously, it was Leipzig Airport, the European home of Antonov Airlines.

The first info was that the AN225 should arrive back from her Americas trip on Friday and leave Saturday with the Antonov 22 arriving Saturday and leaving Sunday and hence the meeting was expected to be Saturday morning. However, that had to be changed on short notice as the Antonov 225 did not make it on time into LEJ due to an overseas delay.

So actually, the AN22 arrived Saturday morning as scheduled from Evreux (after service with French Airforce) with the Antonov 225 following Saturday afternoon - so the best option for pics of this unique "get together" actually in the night Sat to Sun.

After a short call to my company as well as our contacts at Leipzig Airport - that my company uses regularly for charter traffic - they for sure asked us to come over. Well, although it was 450 kms per direction by car, we did it and had a pretty impressive night session at LEJ.

Here are some impressions of a cold but very funny night tour :

And one more - not Antonov tough

My special thanks to my company as well as LEJ Airport.

Hi.

No, Antonov 22 not parked in a convenient position for side on nightshots... But took about 500 pics of her at ZRH already so not that important this time.

Idea was to document both giants in one shot - apparently first time outside Ukraine and even Antonov Airlines as our partner for charter services were really impressed.

CU soon

Felix
