Hamburg Airport # 2

Following on from yesterday's first post from Hamburg, here is a look at a few more aircraft.

First up was my ride home. It's a British Airways operated Airbus A319. A nice little workhorse, and a nice airline to fly on [I even got fed and a drink and at a good price].

Airbus A319-131, G-EUPC, operated by British Airways

Airbus A320-214, CS-TNJ, operated by TAP Portugal
Air Berlin in a low cost carrier based in Germany [surprise! :-)], which operated by jets and turbo props.
Airbus A320-216, D-ABZI, operate by Air Berlin
A category of aircraft that seem to be rare at the airports I visit in Europe are turboprops. There are never more than a very small number of them around. Maybe I'm just not visiting secondary airports or maybe they are just not used so much [there are on the other hand a usually a fair few regional jets]. Here are a couple:

Bombardier DHC-8-402, D-ABQP, operated by Air Berlin

Bombardier DHC-8-402, YL-BAH, operated by Air Baltic
