Time for a new TR. This time the purpose of the trip was to visit relatives in Mosjøen, a town in the middle of Norway.
This route is quite special to me since it involves a leg on the Dash 8-100series. One can say that my interest in aviation started in a Dash 8 on approach into Mosjøen, back in the good old days when they flew with an open cockpit door.
Well enough chitchat.

Bergen - Trondheim (BGO-TRD)
Date: 08.08.12
Flight: Norwegian DY170
Departure: 16:00
Arrival: 17:00
Actual departure: 16:01
Actual arrival: 17:04
Aircraft: Boeing 737-86N
Reg: LN-NOQ

I will not provide a lot of pictures of this flight but some technical information

Not much to say about preflight, got to the airport and checked in on one of Norwegians self check-in automates and self helped baggage drops.
Bergen airport has a shortage of seats at some of the gates, which makes it benefiting to be early at the gate.

This is the STAR we flew into Trondheim, LASAG 3M. As you can see it contains a lot of the waypoint we actually passed by.

This aircraft, like most of Norwegians aircraft's has a portrait of a noteworthy Scandinavian on its tail fin.
This particular aircraft is portraying Kristian Birkeland who was a Norwegian scientist and is best known for being the first person to clarify Aurora borealis. He can also be found on the Norwegian 200 Kroner note.

In Trondheim I had to check in again since the next flight with Widerøe, a part of the SAS Group, and competitor of Norwegian. I had about three and a half hours in Trondheim, which turned out to be a perfect opportunity for a meal. Afterwards I headed down to the commuter terminal to wait for boarding. I can tell you that if Bergen has a shortage of seat at some of the gates, then this particular terminal has a serious problem. Sorry for not having a picture. One thing is when there are several Dash 8-103, 37-seats aircraft's boarding at ones, but the serious problem occurs when the Boeing 737s are using the gates, which happens.

This almost, kind of depicts how I sense a cockpit ride. I have never managed to capture it with a camera, and I have yet to do so! I like wide angle shots. It gives you the wide range of vision that like in reality, pluss it give depth.

After the official demands for security checks at every airport (about 2004), due to some lunatic who hijacked a small plane with an axe and almost succeeded in crashing it (no political motive), the cafeteria has been replaced by this (money goes in the box)

Excellent TR! The cockpit pics and videos are a fantastic view into the job of piloting (for those of us who have to pay to fly!)


Always looking for the longest route with the most transfers.

Great report, really good to see these flight from the cockpit. Do you work for one of the airlines to get to ride up front?

Thanks,
Nice to know it was somewhat interesting.
To answer your questions, I don't work for any airline all I did was ask the captain if I could use the jumpseat. So, if your ever flying in Scandinavia on either Norwegian, SAS or Widerøes flights recommend you to first ask the stewardess if you could take a picture in the cockpit, then when your in the cockpit ask the pilots if it's possible to use the jumpseat. If you ask the stewardess directly I think your more likely to get a negative answer.
The camera is Canon 60D with mostly Sigma 10-20 and canon 17-85

Regards,
Nikolay

These are the types of threads that make a.net truly interesting. I enjoyed every picture and text! Pardon me for saying that this is so much more interesting than seeing yet another trip report with too many pictures of meals and desserts! Thank you for posting.
