Q400 on final approach, Innsbruck – Austria

In the heart of the austrian Alps, Innsbruck is an amazing place. Pilots need a special training to be able to operate to/from Innsbruck, due to the high terrain around and special approach and departure procedures. This is where the Luxair Q400’s undergo their C check. Those pictures are from my second flight there, in January 2018. For my first flight, I did a video of the approach and landing that you can see here. One of the most beautiful approach I have ever flown…

Beautiful London

London city airport

The approach runway 09 at London City is one of the most amazing we have on the Luxair network. Overflying that city, and turning final around the Shard and the tower bridge at 2000 feet is just surrealist.

My first officer Laurentz Snyers concentrated just before landing…

Soaring

This is my latest movie, created using the best sequences I shot during the last years.

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...
