Swiss Touch-and-go's At MLA Today

Thu Nov 11, 2004 5:11 am

Oh, I wish I had my camera today!  Sad

It was a beautiful day in Malta and Swiss A340 HB-JMD was doing touch-and-go's all afternoon and into the early evening. Hopefully someone was out taking pictures, because she was just gorgeous in the afternoon fall light.

Actually I wish I had a video camera as she was CLIMBING. Yeah, I know, no passengers or cargo and probably not much fuel. But this bird was grabbing some air! A beautiful, beautiful sight.

Ahh, the A340 doing Touch-and-go's again. They did them in France aswell in May or so. I remember on the 31st of Aug Swiss was doing Touch-and-go's with the MD-11 in ZRH. Its fantastic to watch.
