I spent just eight days in Hamburg., Nothing much aviation to report, although I did visit the excellent Miniatur Wunderland (there will be a post on this next week), which includes a large airport section and is apparently based on Hamburg Airport. Well worth the visit if you have a few hours free!
Once at Hamburg airport [ICAO code: EDDH] and after security, there was plenty of opportunity to photograph some of the flying both prior to, and after entering, the "B" gates, which handle non-Schengen area flights.
This post has the first of a two posts covering the happenings at Hamburg airport. There is only one photo of an aircraft on the runway... unfortunately my 55-250 kit lens gets too fuzzy at the 250mm end...
First up is a rather special aircraft - the first Airbus A320 NEO [New Engine Option] in airline service. Note that compared to the other A320's in this post, those engines have a much larger diameter. It's hard to tell from this distance, but there does not appear to be a lot of ground clearance...
