Hey everybody. As soon of you know I day tripped to FRA yesterday and had an awesome day. Unfortunatley I travelled alone but enjoyed every second of it. Im going to post a full trip report and some of the 100+ photos I took. The spectators terrace is quite unbelivable with some of the best views imagineable. I flew over yesterday on board EI-CVC the A320 I was hoping for as it now meens Ive flown on all 4 of the first 4 A320s delivered to EI. I also flew on Victor Charlie on the way home. Again EI were impressive with reasonable loads on both sectors. Anyway Id recommend a trip there to anyone and it would be great if we could have a big meet there sometime in the future. Heres 2 pictures of the highlights of the day.

I do not like the visitors terrace, to much backlit phots there. There is better place near the US airbase in the approach, which one can reach by train. The pics however a nice and I see you went for the same highlight I went, when I went to FRA the first time for some commercial aviation spotting.
