Turning final runway 05 at sunset, an incredible view on the Alps and the Mont Blanc

Approach and Landing in Innsbruck, Austria

One of the most amazing approaches I have ever flown. Downwind leg is just above the mountains. A few minutes later, we are established on final.

Low visibility approach

Some days, you see the runway only a few seconds before touching down. This is an approach with 200 meters of runway visual range, which is the minimum we need to fly it. The red/withe/red lights are part of the high intensity approach lights, and the green lights are the beginning of the runway. It's always challenging to fly to the ground with so little visual clues. The approach has to be flown manually using the headup guidance system, and with great precision as a small deviation on the loc, on the glide or on the speed will trigger an "approach warning" forcing the crew to go around...
