Remark Photographer
D-ABVH (cn 25045/845) An extremely rare event caught on camera. Just by chance I was at the airport that day to drop my father off for his flight to FRA. Winds were strong, blowing from the West at about 25kts. Pilots were flying approaches to Runway 1R and then crossing over to 30 for landing, as this LH jumbo is seen doing, passing in front of the new tower during his bank. I'm glad I brought my camera along!

Truly amazing. Very honest and knowledgeable photographer. Brought back vivid memories when LH was still operating SIN-SYD - due to towering cumulo nimbus and higher cloud formation - weaved for a good 15 minutes between them. LH flight crew always impress.
