A New KLM Flight! Down to the Tropics. Nairobi
Keeping flying those long-hauls for KLM, from Amsterdam-Schiphol. Today, we're flying a long way down to Nairobi, over Germany, the Mediterranean, Egypt and Sudan! Believe me or not, we really got some tropical storm and weather just when reaching there! Towering clouds, lightning and the whole stuff (and the night, further, had fallen)! Impressive! That time, I opted for the 20-picture format :-)
Cheers, and welcome aboard (like crewmembers of course :) as, by this season, I do think no one has gotten some holidays :()
Here is our plane! The first officer had the preflight checklist and configuring the plane done
