"Cockpit to ground…?"
This is one of the ways we can keep in touch with the ground crew for handling issues, fuel figures, questions about the ground equipment and much more. Right now the chocks are in place, tons of cargo is being loaded, 165.000 liters of kerosene is finding its way to our aircraft and hundreds of meals, snacks and beverages are being stowed on this ship.

Flying steady at 31.000ft above St. Petersburg where the sun will not really set, since our routing is quite northern. The ‘clouds’ you can see aren’t the clouds you will be able to see on a regular day or night. These Noctilucent Clouds are formed by dust and ice particles high in the atmosphere (at altitudes of about 80km), illuminated by the sun from below the horizon - thus creating this quite magical effect both on the left and right of the windscreen.
Such ‘nights’ are just amazing and entertaining…
