Return of the Blimp – New Zeppelin Edition 5


The last photo so far of the Zeppelin NT visiting our Essen/Mülheim airport last weekend. We will get our own Zeppelin NT sometime this fall or next year, but the trial run seems to have been successful and the next flights are already bookable for Spring 2024.

Return of the Blimp – New Zeppelin Edition 2


A proper photo of the Zeppelin NT flying over Mülheim and Essen this weekend – apparently it’s not the one that will remain permanently here, but just a test run and our “own” airship will arrive this Autumn and fly regularly next year!

Return of the Blimp – New Zeppelin Edition


Two years after the last flight of our local blimp Luftschiff Theo, which now resides on ground at our local airport, a new blimp showed up in the skies today! It’s a Zeppelin NT that is now stationed at the Essen/Mülheim airport and will fly regular sightseeing trips in place of its predecessor.

One last look at Emirates Airways’ Airbus A380, this was really a lucky shot.

Emirates Airways’ Airbus A380 only starts very rarely in a Northeast direction above our heads from Düsseldorf and I’ve been never able to take a closeup photo of it – until this April!

The big Airbus A380 from Emirates Airways is still flying from Düsseldorf
and sometimes you can see it flying overhead.

Planespotting 2022 #2: The Antonov 2


This Antonov AN-2 is stationed at our local airport Essen-Mülheim and is probably the only Biplane in this region!

Planespotting 2022 #1: The Antonov


Our local Blimp isn’t flying this year, but today I saw the Antonov AN-2 flying and it sounds very different than the small Cessnas and Pipers that are zipping around here.
