This exceeds all expectations!!!
Today I drove to the airport to catch a very very very rare visitor:
a South African 747 SP (ZS-SPA) spent the night at FRA and was scheduled for depature at 7:30a.m.

at 8:00 it took off from 18West to Johannesburg. Oh man, what a nice bird!

Actually I gave up hope to catch it because Qantas stopped flying to FRA with the 743 on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and Thursday is the only day they use the 743 instead of the 744...
at 8:15 TF-ABT ( Air Atlanta L1011) on finals and take-off from 18West 80 minutes later (charter flight to BCN)

Later we will get again this boring ANA Pokemon 744 at 18:30...
I´ll get my pics back tomorrow morning and I really hope that they will have an excellent upload quality...
So, I´d like to know how many special paints you guys could catch on one single day??? What was your best day at your home airport? Please let us know...
Regards from FRA
btw: the weather was perfect as well...
and many thanks to my dad who wanted to weak up so early to drive my mum to work and my sisters to school, so I was allowed to take my mum´s car THANX!
