Hi everyone,

In order to prevent another repeat DTW-FRA-BLR trip report, I've added some of the pictures I took en-route to Bangalore in April 2018.


SPOTTING AT DETROIT WAYNE COUNTY AIRPORT

Delta's CRJs and Mad Dogs at DTW's Robert McNamara Terminal (Terminal A).


Delta's cargo terminal. We passed this facility when the airport coach drove from the McNamara terminal to the North Terminal.


My flight (LH443) was from the North Terminal, after I checked in around noon, I spent some time roaming around the North Terminal.

Spirit Airline's A320-200


Southwest's Boeing 737-800 (with Scimitar Wingtips) in the old livery. She came in as WN2105 from Chicago-MDW



FedEx's Boeing 767-300F at the Cargo Terminal


This Embraer E170 was being prepped for its flight to Newark Liberty as UA3410



Another Spirit A320-200 was chilling near the Spirit Hangar


A Delta A320-200 landing on Runway 22L..


... And a Delta Boeing 777 on a parallel approach (Runway 22R)


The queen from Frankfurt, D-ABVU had just landed as LH442. This bird was once named Bayern.





Spirit's Yellow Taxi and Alaska's Boeing 737-800, caught during Taxi


More Yellow Taxis!


American's Mad Dog in the old colours


And an A320-200 in the new colours



PICTURES TAKEN ONBOARD LH443, FRA-DTW

Flying over Lake Huron



Flying over Canada's frozen lakes


Sunset over the North Atlantic




Flying over Amsterdam


Descent over the Rhine-Main area


SPOTTING AT FRANKFURT AM MAIN

United Boeing 777-200


D-ABVU, the bird that brought me to FRA. Sorry about my thumb getting in the way


Concourse Z is not very spotter friendly. Unlike some other gates, passengers descend to a lower floor to board the aircraft. That puts the terminal structure in between the aircraft and the camera's lens.

D-ABVP at a gate, she would later fly to DTW as LH442. I love this picture for the sunrise.


More sunrise! Transit between Concourse Z and Concourse C



Air China Boeing 777-300 with a special livery celebrating 50 years of Chinese and French Diplomatic relations



D-AIMA, a Lufthansa A380-800 at Gate C15





A Lufthansa MD-11F taking off from Runway 25C


A Sun Express Boeing 737-800, first time I'm seeing this airline


D-ABYA, a Lufthansa Boeing 747-8i in the new colors. This bird was coming to land from Mumbai and flew past FRA before turning around for a landing on Runway 25C


Cathay Pacific Boeing 777-300



Air China A330-300



Thai Airways Boeing 777-300


American Airlines' Boeing 777-300 in the One World Livery



D-ABYT in the Retro livery landed as LH755 from Bangalore


A Lufthansa A380-800 taking to the skies


KLM's City Hopper taking off from Runway 25C


Aeroflot's A320-200. The A380 wing got in the way..


Aer Lingus's A320-200


El-Al Boeing 737-800 taxiing to her gate after landing


Iran Air's Airbus A330


SQ's A380


ANA Boeing 777


D-AIGM, an A340-300 named Gorlitz landed from Chennai


She would fly back to Chennai as LH758



D-ABYK, a Boeing 747-8i, named Rheinland-Pfalz, my ride to Bengaluru



Eye to Eye with D-ABYK


D-ABYG, Baden-Württemburg, another Boeing 747-8i to Mumbai


Onboard D-ABYK:


I was really tired by the time I was on D-ABYK. I have the 7 hour 15 minute flight from DTW, on which I got no sleep and an ultra long 8 hour layover at FRA to thank. I have very few pictures of the second leg as I dozed off immediately after we took off, woke up for lunch and dozed off again, almost all the way to Bangalore.

Here are a few that I managed to take:

Taxiing to 25C at FRA




Lunch was delicious!


Dragon Air A330-300 at the neighboring gate after we landed at BLR


I hope you enjoyed this compilation!
Comments, as always, are welcome. And as the Germans say, Auf Wiedersehen!

Ananth...a lovely mini-TR and photo report! You have captured the essence of what most of us enjoy in airports, and in the air.
Thank you! Cheers, Sumantra.
