Flight Pictures New York, September 2005

And again for business to America. Collecting flight pictures becomes a new hobby. This time I got some new sights - in particular the Bristol Channel was not in my collection yet.

This time the flight goes to New York JFK. That avoids any direct view to Manhattan.

I have spotted some more Airports which can be easily seen from above and mostly the have a characteristic shape which you can recognize on a map.

The flight back did not reveal much but I got a nice sunset.

This time some pictures are spoiled by the window. Hopefully I can make it better next time.

From Berlin Tegel we went eastbound to Pankow and Weißensee followed by a U-turn flying to the West. I sit on the left side - a good change to the last flight
