I just got a nice treat when my flight took the city tour while descending. Here are some nice photos!

More Aviation Exposures
Earlier this evening I returned to the Blue Danube Airport Linz, to try some more time exposures. This time all corn was harvested, so I had a unrestricted view on the runway. My conclusion after taking a couple of photos: tiny aircraft are quite unstable; at least more than they seem to be. Have a look and form your own opinion!
Poached Egg with Ham Espuma
On Friday, driving from Linz to St. Anton am Arlberg, we stopped in Salzburg at Hangar 7. Our intention wasn’t just to see the flying bull fleet; the Carpe Diem Lounge-Café offered us a wonderful breakfast. I found something interesting on the menu that I couldn’t resist: poached egg with ham espuma. I had no idea what to expect and was quite surprised: a bowl filled with a very fluffy foam covering the poached egg. After talking to the waitress and additional research, I am still wondering about the exact preparation of the ham-foam.
Time Exposure of Aircraft
Recently, I tried to take a time exposure photo of a departing aircraft. The closest airport, Blue Danube Airport Linz, offers a perfect spot for taking such a picture. Currently, there is too much corn around to take this picture. I switched to another spot this time and will try again in several weeks.
Air and Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center
The last thing on my amazing journey over Christmas was to visit the Udvar-Hazy Center of the Air and Space Museum at Dulles International Airport. The reason because I wished so much to go there was that the Space Shuttle prototype Enterprise is exhibited there. NASA used this shuttle to test whether it is airworthy or not as the shuttle is optimized for space and not air operation.
Other planes exhibited there are the Concorde, the “Black Bird” and several planes from World War II.
