Flying under the Auora Borealis
Flying trough the night with the clouds sweeping by below us and the Northern Lights - Auora Borealis above. What a magical night.
While performing an approach with a low visibility we have to performn an auto land. Here the computer will fly and land the airplane. The minimum required visibility for us to perform such a landing is 200m and we have to see the lights at 15m height. Here you see what we see during such an approach. The visibility was a bit better (500m) but as you can see we only see lights, nothing else...
Descent to Tenerife
We have just started our descent towards Tenerife, inbound Ganta. The moon was shining bright, illuminating the few clouds below us. You can see the isaland Tenerife trough the left window with the Vulcano El Teide in the middle of the island.
Approaching the runway
Final approach. Just a few more feet and the main wheels will touch down softly on the runway, bringing us back to home.

Jet engine at sunset
During sunset the light gets amazing. You can see the reflection of the red beacon light on the engine cowling. I had to time this corretly to see the reflection on the engine. It gives an awesome view.
