AirBridgeCargo has 7 aircraft, Global Supply Systems has 3 aircraft, and you just happened to catch two of them side-by-side? Are you a betting man?

All nice shots, btw.

Frankfurt is the most important Airport in the EU. It can truck than ship global cargo to everywhere with in the EU in 12 Hours. So it has a huge cargo center, they call cargo city. All the big boys fly into FRA.

It was taken with the epl-1 and the panasonic 45-200 with the hood. I know about it. It was the polarizer I used to try to cut the reflexion of the glass.

All those heavies! Yes, the glass really affected the IQ. The one of the Oman Air A330 smoking the runway is my favorite!

OT: What do you know about Ethihad? I'm taking a flight from Chicago to Abu Dhabi in a a few weeks and am booked on Ethihad...a 15 hour non-stop flgiht on an A340-600.

They are one of the top 5 airlines in service up there with Singapore, Thai and Emirates they take care of their passenger quite well. I like Abu Dhabi, but would get tired of the desert after some time.
