Four Legs To Catch The Dornier 228 (SCN-DUS)

Sun Jun 29, 2008 8:09 am

Four legs to catch the Dornier 228 // SCN-DUS


Hello, dear readers,
always, when I was in STR and saw the Dornier 228 in action,
I´ve thought, that might be an interesting plane to fly on.
Fellow users Christoph(Contact Air) and Alex (Ndebele) covered the Do 228 on the STR-DTM route.
So, I´ve had to search for something new!.


1.)
Wednesday, 18.06.2008
STR (Stuttgart-Echterdingen) - TXL (Berlin-Tegel)
Duration: 55 minutes

Service AB 6526 operated by airberlin Airbus A319 D-ABGJ
Scheduled: 06.30 // 07.45
Actual: 06.40 // 07.35
Gate: 333 Seat: 25A
Load factor: Around 70%
Fare: EUR 34,91 per leg

History:
04.03.2008: Delivered to airberlin
Leg no. 35 on the A319 and the first service on this machine

A short night ahead, after I´ve arrived back at my home office from Latvia

https://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...ums/trip_reports/read.main/128519/

turned on my laptop and searched if check-in for the next day was possible.
No problem the last time with airberlin, but this time only the first flight was ready to go.
Secured my seat and decided to be a bit earlier at the airport the next day.
A strange boarding time was announced, 05.45 am for the 06.30 am service.
At the airport at around 05.30 am.
Bad luck today, a tired and unfriendly female reprinted my self-service boarding pass but send me to
another desk with my check-in question for the next flights.
Better luck now, a real friendly female searched the system, first she told me only leg two was ok,
but later all flights showed up.
Seat change on leg four was not possible, maybe an aircraft change?.
No time to wait at security, settled down at the gate around boarding time.
The plane was parked at the finger, no bus service today.

STR early morning:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08001.jpg

Finally 6.00 am was the real boarding time.
Three females on the plane, ok, but not that especially friendly.
The cabin clean, legroom was ok, fitted with blue-grey leather seats.

Indoor:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08003.jpg

The map system on the screens for the whole duration.
A very friendly welcome from the pilot on the ground, more detailed and friendly inflight.
Cockpit crew was from Germany.
Departure from runway 25. The route was more western than usual near ERF and LEJ.
Flight level 35.000 feet.

Inflight:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08004.jpg

Good views, especially during approach.

SXF:

Soon to be history, THF:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08007.jpg

Newspapers, snacks and drinks on service. For me the austrian Manner football waffle.
Touchdown on runway 26R and deboarding in front off the new Terminal C.

Nice weather in TXL:

Bye-Bye:

No bus, self service to the entrance.



2.)
Wednesday, 18.06.2008
TXL (Berlin-Tegel) - SCN (Saarbrücken-Ensheim)
Duration: 1 hour

Service AB 6478 operated by airberlin Boeing 737-700 D-ABBV
Scheduled: 08.40 // 09.55
Actual: 09.20 // 10.20
Gate: C44 Seat: 23A
Load factor: Around 75 %

History:
21.11.2001: Delivered to Sun Country/USA
01.05.2002: Further to Air Astana //Kazakhstan
14.04.2007: In service with airberlin
Leg no. 18 on the B737 and the first on this machine

If FR wants to fly from Tegel, that will be the perfect place!.
The usual fast built industrial style terminal.
A sign shows stairs up for connecting flights from the arrivals area, but it was closed.
I´ve asked a friendly girl, she called another friendly male which opened the stairs and walked with me towards the departure area.
It seems this is not that much used there.
The screens showed a delay for the SCN service, finally boarding started some 30 minutes late.
This time by bus to the plane.

Boarding a new entry to my log:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08010.jpg

And again:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08012.jpg

One male, two females, all friendly, the best impression around the different cabin crews today.
Departure from runway 26R, single runway operation at TXL.
This machine was fitted with blue yellow fabric seats, something oldfashioned, lower legroom than on the new A319.

Indoor:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08013.jpg

Again newspapers, free drinks and a bread roll, this time a "Laugenstange".
A friendly welcome and apologize for the delay from the pilot short after departure.
Reason was the late arrival from SCN. He was once more on the speakers inflight with detailed route and weather informations.
No screens on this plane.
No flightlevel information, we´re gone southwestern towards Erfurt, Frankfurt, directly over the airport Zweibrücken
and further to SCN.

Inflight:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08015.jpg

Approach:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08017.jpg

Touchdown hard and heavy on runway 27 , rough breaking action, the pilots called SCN the "aircraft carrier",
now I know why. A valley ahead and one after the end of the short runway.

Breaking:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08018.jpg

Welcome to a new airport for my log:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08019.jpg

Parked on the apron, like earlier at TXL, self service deboarding, walked over the apron to the terminal building.

Deboarding:

SCN (Saarbrücken-Ensheim) - DUS (Düsseldorf-Rhein-Ruhr)
Duration: 45 minutes

Service airberlin AB 6003 operated by LGW Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter Dornier Do 228 D-IMIK
Scheduled: 12.25 // 13.20
Actual: 12.30 // 13.15
Gate: B Seat: 1C Exit
Load factor: Around 30%

History:
Not that much data found, built in 1985 and registered in Germany, Australia and the UK for several times
Premiere, leg no. 1 on the Dornier 228

My first impression about SCN was not bad, a modern style building with lots of glass.
The viewing deck was free, but secured with a glass wall, not the best for good pix.

Now to PMI:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08024.jpg

Arrival HHI from PMI:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08026.jpg

I´ve passed security without any time to wait and headed for my gate in the B area.
Now the main purpose of this trip seems not to far away.
My plane arrived early from DUS and parked on the apron.

Arrival:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08028.jpg

Taxi:

Close by:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08030.jpg

What a nice plane/tractor combination!:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08031.jpg

Boarding was called also early, the female agent pointed to the small Dornier, again self service walking over the apron.
No problem during these nice weather conditions.
Me and four other "victims" proceeded to the machine. There was one nice female, she was a german singer, dont know the name, but I remember here.
She cant believe that this was the plane to DUS. It seems she want to go back to the terminal, but the FO, greeting us at the door and the whole
conviction from her manager and the other pax worked out, she boarded.

Closer:

Tail shot:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08033.jpg

A very friendly welcome from the captain, real young guys there in front. No FA on the Do 228.
I´ve decided to sit in 1C, exit, directly behind the cockpit, great to follow the action there.

Preparations:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08035.jpg

The cabin fitted with dark grey leather seats, well used, worn out, something dirty and very noisy.
Also free drinks and a sandwich on this short flight.
Departure from runway 27 in direction CGN and DUS.
Flightlevel 9000 feet, no pressurized cabin.

Departed:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08036.jpg

Shakers ahead:

Inflight:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08039.jpg

Heavy clouds around, some shakers, but not a real problem.
Good views along the whole route, one more real flying experience in my log.

Very short to DUS:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08044.jpg

Touchdown on runway 23R , taxi to a position near the Jet Aviation hangar.
Me and the singer´s manager had a very nice chat with the pilot, the bus had to wait for us.
After a goodbye to the two guys I´ve shuttled to the terminal.

Bye-Bye:

Wednesday, 18.06.2008
DUS (Düsseldorf-Rhein-Ruhr) - STR (Stuttgart-Echterdingen)
Duration: 40 minutes

Service AB 6840 operated by airberlin Airbus A320 D-ABDK
Scheduled: 15.45 // 16.50
Actual: 16.25 // 17.05
Gate: B44 Seat: 29A
Load factor: Around 60%

History:
07.12.2006: Delivered to airberlin
Leg no. 42 on the A320 and the first service on this machine

Time enough for some spotting at DUS, there is a large terrace with good views and only a short fence, not bad.
No problem to change my seat for the usual last row window, but for sure a problem when I´ve asked about the plane and the girl there
told me the A320.
A F100, one of my favourites was scheduled and now the A320, not anything else interesting, no, the A320, still the most covered plane in my log.

Another Do 228 departure:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08046.jpg

And a more heavy one, dedicated to Airbuseric:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08047.jpg

3.25 pm was printed for boarding, at 3.00 pm I´ve passed security, again no time to wait and headed for the gate.
Not that much action this time at DUS.
Also not that much pax around, for sure not the reason for the aircraft change, maybe a better demand on the way back to DUS or they need the A320 for another service.

Boarding:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08048.jpg

And again:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08049.jpg

Two male, two females, ok so far. Bright blue leather seats, comfortable, good legroom , clean.
A friendly welcome from the pilot, the load sheet gone lost, but that will be fixed within minutes.
Departure from runway 23L
Magazines/newspapers, snacks and drinks for free.
Flightlevel 23.000 feet via FRA to STR.
More friendly and detailed informations from the FO during cruise.
Also good views on this leg.
Another heavy touchdown on runway 07 follows, parked at a finger gate and soon on the way back home.

Welcome back to STR:

Colour comparison:
http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b305/FLIEGER67/SCN08/SCN08051.jpg


What about my opinion?:
I´ve covered a new airport, SCN, a positive experience and a new type, the Do 228.
I like real flying and that was real flying, for sure, friendly guys there at LGW.
The other flights on AB ok, small delays, no problems at all. Service and planes ok.
No problem to fly AB and LGW again.

Comments welcome,
Markus (FLIEGER67)

Hola Markus!

Thanks again for this TR. Reading it at morning coffee time.

It is always nice to fly these machines which I think have still a long history ahead for transferring passengers to major airports from small locations or travel between non-major locations, otherwise fast train services are sucking up all the customers.

What?  Wow! Were you traveling on a Wednesday? What happened to your flying Tuesdays?

And obviously be prepared for tonight's match. Everybody here is very much convinced Spain is going to win the Eurocup 2008. My guess: Germany 1- Spain 3 Big grin

Salut!

True, thanks god, there are fast trains only on major routes, so that shorties will be alive.

Keep the Tuesdays, but squeezed some Wednesdays in!

Markus, good morning!

I was writing at my own report, when I checked some things, and this one showed up  Silly So, time to read it immediately...

Nice, a whole bunch TopBonus miles on your AB account  Wink Did you manage to get a free flight already again? It's hard now to score, don't you think so?

Good to see 4 new registration entries to your log. D-ABBV and the Dornier for sure the most interesting ones. Flying a B737-700 without winglets is also getting more rare nowadays, it seems.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
And a more heavy one, dedicated to Airbuseric:

Huh?! I thought about a JL diversion to DUS, or so ; But now I understand the meaning :P In a few days you can read more about it  Wink

Good luck tonight. For my poule at work, I got this final, Germany wins.
But, personally I think Spain finally deserves it to win. We'll see tonight! Have fun  Cool

Nice report, Markus. Just some days ago a friend and I talked about that very Do228 flight, but honestly, I'm not really interested in that option. As a fan of larger equipment I have no desire to try all the tiny props - at least the stuff which is smaller than a Saab 340 or an Embraer 120.  Wink

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
The cabin clean, legroom was ok, fitted with blue-grey leather seats.

I had a new CFM-powered A319 and an IAE-powered ex-Indy Air A319 in May and I found the latter much more comfortable. Somehow the legroom on AB's CFM-319s seems to be worse than on the A320s, despite having the same type of seats.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
A F100, one of my favourites was scheduled and now the A320, not anything else interesting, no, the A320, still the most covered plane in my log.

The A320 is also the most flown type in my log, but I still prefer it over a F100. What I can't stand is the vacuum-cleaner-like noise on the Fokker - actually similar to the sound on CRJs or the small ERJs. The larger the plane, the better, I have to say...  Wink


PH
Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

For me, the intra-european traveller, a chance to fly something new, but something larger will also not bad  Smile

No comparison for me till now with the ex-Indy planes, with the whole row for me, comfort was ok.

I agree, if it´s ever possible around Europe.

Hi Markus ,
Great TR as always. My first time seeing a D228 one. Quite impressive and an experience. They used those alot in the Greek Islands , very handy to get into smaller airports. Great you got he cockpit photos also.

Well I'm supporting Germany .... much to my partners disgust who is supporting Spain because of living there LOL.....

Hi Markus,

congratulations to your first Do228-flight! Again a very nice trip report with great pics. I enjoyed especially those taken on the Do228. The "cockpit view" on this aircraft is really unique.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
Fellow users Christoph(Contact Air) and Alex (Ndebele) covered the Do 228 on the STR-DTM route.
So, I´ve had to search for something new!.

And you did find a really interesting route that also involved SCN, an airport that is quite rare here on A.Net.

Quoting FLIEGER67 (Thread starter):
A strange boarding time was announced, 05.45 am for the 06.30 am service.

Boarding time 45 minutes ahead of scheduled departure seems to be common with AB at STR. Even on my Do228-flight STR-DTM, the printed boarding time was 45 minutes before departure, but the agent told me that it would turn out a bit later, which it did. 45 minutes are not necessary to board a Do228...

Regards
Christoph

Hi Markus,

Another nice day of flying it must have been.
4 legs with AB and 4 different aircraft, all new fr the log is always nice  Smile
Good to see you have the Do-228 covered now, you were already talking about it, when I visited STR.

It seems you are posting a new report almost every week now... No chance whatsoever for me to catch up with your log  Smile
Nevertheless another great read, and with some nice pictures.

When can we expect the next one  Wink

Viele Grüsse,

I had a view on your Flugstatistik.de. Really impressive!

You know, lots of uncovered places there.
Like, for example PAD

I always like your interesting stories, hope to read something soon!

The report itself is done, I only have to arrange the pictures now. But I'm a bit short of time at the moment. But just keep an eye on this site and it will pop up soon!

Cheers,
Joost

- Back in the days of film, ir pre digital, I took a pic of a Saarland A320, think it was at FRA, always liked the livery, shame they never managed to last, that said, likely to be part of AB by now!
