    Zurich 21-01-2016

    Let us continue with my second day at Zürich. The day started early with, at first, a visit to the 10th level of the P6 parking garage:

    1. Global 14+01 of the Luftwaffe was awaiting the arrival of its passengers:

    2. This Italian Falcon 900 (MM62171) came by for a quick stop to drop off some high level Italians:

    3. A little more exotic military visitor was this Gulf 5 of the Nigerian Air Force:

    I continued on to the rooftop terrace to do some spotting before participating in the excellent Bucher WEF-apron-tour.

    4. Busy ramp behind this Air Serbia A319:

    And then I got on the bus for some apron shots! It was freezing cold, and the light was sometimes challenging, but nevertheless a great tour once again!

    5. Although I catched this A321 of the Iranian Government two years ago, it's still a nice exotic plane!

    6. A319CJ 4K-8888 of Azerbaijan is showing off the frost:

    7. Very happy with this Pakistan Air Force Gulfstream 4!

    8. Joe Biden's plane, which departed later in the evening, was this C-32A 98-0001, which stood with the doors open all days. Must be hot inside ;)

    9. Joe's support plane was this C-17A 07-7183, which also stood there with its door open:

    10. My second A330 of Air Europa in two days...:

    11. Polaris 15001 of the RCAF was also present:

    12. When arriving at the airport I noticed that this Turkish Government A330 wasn't there anymore... Or so I thought, as they merely re-positioned it! Phew!

    13. Not the best shot, but how many Thai Citations can someone catch on a day?

    14. Kazakhstan's A320CJ was parked next to the A319CJ of the Ukrainian Government:

    15. Enduring the, for it not common, cold weather was this SAAF BBJ:

    16. Prime-Minister Tsipras of Greece was brought by this Hellenic Air Force Gulf 5:
    G5-HAF-678-ZRH21jan16 by Anton Homma, on Flickr

    And with that the tour ended and I made my way to the landing at runway 14. The grey sky cleared up and the rest of the day we had a beautiful, but very cold, blue sky.

    17. It took me some time to figure out that the large letters on the tail were the plane's registration...

    18. Just one of the many bizjets visiting was this Gulf 5 VP-CAR. Anyone knows the c/n?

    19. Just delivered a few weeks earlier and very exotic, this Lebanese Legacy 500!

    20. It was very busy this day with spotters and that was due to the arrival of the US Secretary of Defense, which was brought in by this magnificent E-4B!

    21. Another French Air Force Falcon, this time a 2000LX and with a visible registration!

    22. The Polish delegation was picked up again by this ERJ175:

    23. Definitely one of the prettiest A330s out there!

    24. Almost pink due the sunset. Global M-HOME is seen here on finals.

    25. And the last picture of the day, before the sunlight was gone, is this great C-17A 08-8198.

    A great day comes to an end, with the E-4B being the star of the day. You can see my whole set at:

    Thanks for watching! The pics for Friday will follow as soon as I have the time to edit them!
