Super Constellation flight to Hamburg
Flying with the Super Constellation "Star of Switzerland" to the 100. birthday of Hamburg airport.
Finally I was able to enjoy a long flight (2h) ...
Enroute above the clouds - almost like on the Atlantic passage.
Frankfurt am Main
Arrival before the Lufthansa hangar in Hamburg
On Saturday we went to a scenic flight to the Elbe estuary and then low altitude over the city of Hamburg
Also on Sunday, there was a sightseeing flight - the engine's start with fire and smoke is always a special experience.
On Sunday afternoon we went back to Basel, when departing from Hamburg we were escorted by Red Bull's DC-6.
Too bad the Connie was grounded in 2012 because of engine damage - 2013, it will fly again, more info on superconstellation.org
