The IL-76 landed in DUS Oct 13 in the afternoon and was scheduled to leave Tuesday morning 9am local.

I made my way out early to get to the airport. I got there just shortly after sunrise.

First departure for me was this Air Berlin B737-800 D-ABMU

AB A320 with Austrian Dash 8 Q400

eventhou it flew all sommer it was the first time I saw it wearing this colors:
Air Berlin A320 Fan Force One

Two more highlights for me

Tailwind a Turkish low fare company

Darwin operated for Etihad Regional since the beginning of the summer, but always when I was in DUS in Darwin colors, finaly I caught a bird in Etihad Regional colors

Then American left heading for Chicago

After that I left because there was nothing more interesting for me coming. The Etihad A330 was going to leave some time later, and Emirates due to arrive with one of it's 777 but I didn't stay till then.

I hope I was able to show you a mix of Aircraft you do not get to see that often and that you enjoyed it.
