Pisa - Lübeck

Last Wednesday we have been able to visit the base of the “Aeronautica Militare” (Italian Air Force) which is part of the airport of Pisa. The first effect of this were some close-up pictures of commercial aircraft.

The aircraft, with the logo “Krakow & Malopolska”, was departing for a flight to Lübeck, in Germany.

Very impressive. I would rather like to be flying off to Lubeck! :)

Ach Lübeck, herrliche Stadt! Now how come Pisa has direct flights to Lübeck and not Paris CDG??

No wonder I mistook it for Lufthansa from a distance! ;-)

ciel - Air France has flights from Pisa to CDG and you can also fly Easyjet to Orly. Ryanair sells Lubeck as the airport of Hamburg...

Ryanair, never used them, but they have many nice destinations and cheap tickets. Nice images.
Happy weekend!

So now you are officially a plane-spotter!

Oh lol, because Hamburg isn't exactly anywhere near Lübeck! But then again Ryanair sells Beauvais as being Paris...
