Off to the East - Spotting enroute to and in Leipzig/Halle - 28.-29. June

Hi there!

It's me again. Finally managed it to get to Leipzig/Halle by the end of June to catch this damn Tupolev 204 in the very early morning now. But we also did some sotting while being on the road to/from Leipzig/Halle airport... Worked with this guide, which shows off the best spots in LEJ/EDDP, and I will refer to these spot numbers partly in the report: https://www.spotterguide.net/planespott ... -lej-eddp/

Firday - 28th of June:

1st stop of the afternoon - Hannover:

Image

2nd stop - Wernigerode:
Image

3rd stop - Ballenstedt:
Image

Image

Then we continued to LEJ/EDDP airport.

Saturday - 29th of June:

Spotting session started at 4:40 at Spot #5...

Awesome! There's a bunch of guys from Sittard-Geleen flying for dhl there.. You managed to find the IL-18, but there's also a Il-62 hidden in the city functioning as a restaurant on top of a bowling-alley.
