Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

I know you guys here in Europe have seen loads of loads of LH 737s and you dont like to photograph them anymore, because they are nothing special for you anymore.
But I would like to ask you guys to take pictures of LH 737s and upload them!
I would like to see more pictures of me doing an approach or landing in my LH 737!  Big grin

Tell me, when you land or depart in ZRH and I'll try my best. Otherwise, just shooting LH 737's just out of fun ..... no way!  Wink

Many happy landings

P.S: I've just prepared a kind of spotting guide to MAD for some visitors, I can send it as an e-mail to anyone who is interested, just contact me through my profile or my pictures.

P.S. 2: I'd like somebody taking pictures of my performance as well!!  Smile

Hey there is a new thing, like Naval aviators reviewing their traps on videos, we could have pilots reviewing the performance of their landings by looking at A.net photos!!

.. Johan, a whole new market, maybe Airline managements would pay for the service!!!  Smile

PS can't help you with photos but if we didn't shoot 737s at SYD we wouldn't shoot much at all!



If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Let's make a deal. You get me on the jumpseat, and I'll take some shots of you landing from a different angle! Are you game for that?

Bring your 737 to Newcastle, it'll make a change from those poxy CRJ's!

Like I said, I'll be at FRA this Thursday which is the 7th. If you care to tell me where you're flying in from I'd be happy to take photos of your approach since that would narrow it down to a couple of 737's at least.

Cheers,
Sebastian

LOL! Have I ever!

Memories of my flight instructor shouting "Peddle your bike" and sticking in a boot full of rudder to try and get me out of the habit of raising a dropped wing with aileron on short final. Boy it worked! Same technique in a 737?

hi Sean,

Quoting Sean377 (Reply 16):

Well, you dont use the rudder during approach, just on short final, during crosswind to align the aircraft with the centerline and after touchdown to keep it there  Wink

But during approach only aileron and elevator, no rudder (as long as you dont have an engine failure)  Wink

just rock your wings, flash your lights several times, and honk your horn on short final so we know it's you. Big grin

@ WILCO737

If you fly in and out of MUC, just drop me an email with ETA, aircraft-reg and origin/destination, and with more than 95% probability I'll be able to get out onto the ramp to shoot you in action!  Smile A few hours notice in advance is enough.

Looking forward to seeing you in MUC any time soon.

Best regards,
Mike
