TG 7663 Bangkok to Frankfurt

Post by steve63 » 21 Jan 2010, 18:36

Its been a while since I posted any shots here so here are 2 shots of flight
TG 7663 Bangkok to Frankfurt. This is a code share flight for Thai Airlines flown by
Lufthansa using a B747-400.

The 2 shots are just before touchdown at Frankfurt airport.

Aaron you may use these shot for the screen shot pages if there is any space left.

Oh dear, what's up with the lack of wingflex? The wings are actually drooping down :?

The answer to that is in the second shot. Notice how it says slew :P . Whenever an aircraft is in slew mode, it's wings return to normal position, regardless of the movement.

Still pretty good shots though.

Yeah the slewing was a result of my having to go upstairs to answer the phone
just as I was about to take the shots. when I got back to my computer my 4 year old son
was sitting at the key board and my aircraft was inside the terminal building. he said he was
parking my aircraft for me . So I slewed back to the runway took the shots and finished the flight.

What I would've done is slew the aircraft to landing position (about some 200 ft of altitude), proceed with landing, and just before touchdown, paused the simulator. That way, the wings will have their flex and no one will have known. :winking:

That is why answering machines, voice mails were created. So we pilots can put the birds in the air and on the ground w/out interuptions. Unless the wife summons :lol:
Good pics though!
