Spotting Highlights II

Since I was never allowed to see a Concorde in the air and the actual winter weather leaves time to play - here is a picture optimized with Photoshop.... :) I hope you like this vintage looking picture, and the further optimization of the Picture. 

The original picture was taken at 2015. The Concorde is positioned on a pole in the middle of CDG-Airport, where you can visit this stunning Super Sonic Jet every Day.

Low and fast. The Fouga Magister shows why the nickname is "Mice-Killer"

Tief und schnell... ob die Fouga deswegen inoffiziell Mäusetöter heißt?

Probably one of the last pictures with sun until Christmas. The weather forecast doesn't look very good: (

Wahrscheinlich eines der letzten Sonnenbilder bis Weihnachten. Die Wettervorhersage sieht ja nicht besonders berauschend aus :(

"Good Bye - NIKI"

It is appalling how dynamic the aviation industry has shown this year. The news is becoming increasingly dense and now it looks as if the airline NIKI is looking into a more than uncertain future. Since I first saw the NIKI brand, I have always created a picture of every aircraft I have seen in the past. Today, unfortunately, this seems to be paying off. For more pictures, click me! 

Es ist erschreckend welche Dynamik in diesem Jahr die Flugbranche gezeigt hat. Die Nachrichten verdichten sich immer mehr und es schaut nun so aus, als ob die Fluglinie NIKI in eine mehr als ungewisse Zukunft blickt. Da ich die Marke NIKI als sehr sympathisch empfinde, habe ich bereits in der Vergangenheit immer ein Bild von jedem Flieger erstellt, den ich erblickt habe. Heute scheint sich das leider auszuzahlen.

What a nice surprise at the Railway-Station in Swidwin, this Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-17PF. The "1976" means probably the year of the restoration. If somebody knows more about the special jet, please write :)
