    Default Approaching Icy Freezing Iceland To Land

    Shalom and greetings all my pals,

    Presenting a nice approach and landing to icy freezing Iceland's BIKF Keflavík International Airport 's runway 02

    Approaching island of Iceland



    Nice wing view of Iceland and note unusual different layers of colors presented by sunset





    Engine view of entire Icelandic landscape with weird skyline!!



    At 15,000 ft on way to BIKF



    At 10,000 ft



    On final runway approach to BIKF runway 02



    Few seconds before touchdown while blowing lots of snow on runway



    TOUCHDOWN resulting into more exciting snow blowing





    TO BE CONTINUED BELOW PLEASE.........................................

    Got to reach to end of runway because of ultra icy on runway pavement which does not permit deep braking or otherwise the plane will spin around



    Approaching gate in bitter cold weather



    Arrived at gate



    Thank you for viewing. Stay tuned for next exciting flight.

    Regards,

    Aharon

    Great shots, Aharon! Are you going to make our teeth chatter all winter long?

    You're right Zippy! shall we offer Aharon a ticket to the tropics? Yes? Great idea isn't it? On your account ofcourse!

    Hey, if it gets any colder here this winter, I'll splurge for 3 tickets!

    Neat pictures. I would like to go back and visit in the summer (August).
    One thing bugs me about FSX/P3D etc. depiction of Iceland is the trees. Even the ORBX scenery shows too many trees. There aren't any as such. In the far past, records tell of it being forested, all but a few small protected patches of trees remain today.
