We experienced an amazing sunset while on radar vectors to runway 18R at Amsterdam - Schiphol. The sun just peaked below the clouds and turned the whole sky orange. Did you know our callsign is also "Orange" ?
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.
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.
