G 20 Summit July 2017 in Hamburg...Picture heavy::

Post by MikeX »

Hey guys!
As you might have noticed in the news, back in July 2017 the G20 Summit was held in Hamburg/Germany. Of course an event like that has to be considered as a "once-in-a-lifetime-experience" for all the people working at the airport and the spotter community.
A lot of presidents, head of states, prime ministers, secretaries and staff members etc. were expected to arrive at the relatively "small" Hamburg "Helmut Schmidt" Airport, so the parking space was a difficult issue, which had to be solved.
However, all the people working at the airport did a great job and everything went well.
The highlight, as you can imagine, was the arrival and departure procedure of the President of the United States.
Of course, both VC-25A were present, supported by two VH-60N and four CH-47F used to transport the President and the staff/administration members.
Normally the city of Hamburg operates two EC135 police helicopters, however during the summit the number of helicopters, operated by the police and federal police of Germany, had to be increased significantly to cover all the necessary tasks and missions, e.g. convoy top cover, dealing with possible intruders in the no-fly-zone, observation of protests in the city etc..
I hope you will enjoy the pictures!

Cheers, Mike

Thank you for an excellent selection of pictures from a very important event, you certainly picked some perfect viewpoints. Thank you also for the brief annotations with the pictures of what the aircraft were, something that other photographers could take note of. Not everyone is up to date on modern aircraft and users.

The VIP stuff is mostly fabulous to look at with the exception of the RAF's poor efforts :grin:

Great shots and nice vantage points. :up: :clap:

Wonderful shots, that one with the Korean, Chinese and Japanese 747s in the same shot :clap: :win:

I have to say though, come on...number 28 - you had a clear shot there, couldn't have missed. :wink:
