airberlin Just saying Good bye

This Saturday I took the opportunity and went in the direction of Düsseldorf Airport International Airport. The goal was to photograph as many Air Berlin and Niki aircrafts as possible. The good weather in combination with the autumn holidays has provided an ideal opportunity. So it was also possible to create a farewell picture of the airline Air Berlin.

Fortunately, almost all types of airplanes from Air Berlin can be seen in Düsseldorf. Be it the small Dash 8 up to the largest representative of the airline, the Airbus A330.

Also was the opportunity given to close some gaps in my collection of Air Berlin aircraft. For example, the White A330 and some DASH were missing.

To finish this project successfully, I started the day on the well-known parking deck and finished it at the fence in the north of the airport. 

All in all it was a very successful day and I wish you a lot of fun with viewing the pictures. 

So we  would remember Air Berlin - on top of everything!

Some interesting stickers "mit NIKI in den Urlaub" means "With NIKI into Holidays". We will hope that there is an opportunity in the future to do this.

And here is a complete collection of the Dash8 machines from Saturday. We can be anxious about the further use of these small aircraft in the near future. Now, that so many Fokker aircrafts get retired, there is surely a high demand for these regional jets.
