757 - action in Innsbruck (LOWI)

Hi everyone,

Here are a few impressions from Innsbruck (LOWI) taken this winter season - mostly 757s among a few others. Unfortunately once again there was hardly ever snow, so
it may not look like winter in some shots. I hope you enjoy! :smile:

Heavy smoke from a fire in a factory (thankfully no injuries) and strong winds made the approach a little tricky that day!

Comments appreciated!

Lovely set :clap: :clap:

The close-up Aeroflot stands out, but all are nice images.

Excellent photos - as a young lad I went to Innsbruck by train from Uk for ski-ing. I remember looking down on the airfield to see a Brit Eagle Britannia landing - is my menory correct :dizzy:

That was before my time, but I asked somebody with knowledge about Innsbruck airport and was told that your memory is correct. Brit Air Britannia, Viscount and later BAC1-11 were used on a regular basis to/from LOWI, until G-AOVO crashed on approach in 1964 killing all on board. Airlines from the UK were a rare sight here in the following years. In 1968 G-AFTN crashed in Germany enroute to INN and Brit Air went bankrupt.
