Should this really be a dedication to do, then in the Nordic countries. I like them!
The trip in one word:
"Should I really leave the north after this majestic experience the last night?"
Hei, hello dear readers,

And this is flying 2015, at least till now!:
An early good morning greeting from northern Norway after one of these short, rather short, travel nights.
But worth it it was, oh yes.
Not sure where these lightnings in my mind coming from. Maybe Aurea Borealis is baked?.
Ok, breakfast is ready roomside
and just a couple of minutes thereafter the preordered this time taxi is also ready for the ride to the airport.
It was cheap?. Joke, this is Norway!
Clean, functional and simply no one else here beside me at "Alta lufthavn". But I´am close to sure that the time is right for my upcoming flights
Chilly it is outdoor, lovely 11 degrees but on the negative side, ok nothing else expected during this time of the year in the north
Better to stay indoor, isn´t it?.
Also when there is no lounge on offer
Or this one and just by surprise there is also a SK plane here!
And exactly this one is on final preparations to fly for somewhere else so it looks like
Now these yellow sign on the screen fits to my expectations for a couple of more northern style pictures!
Out for the frosty apron to board
LN-RPK "Heimer Viking", the 737-700 like the schedule told me.
Leg no. 46 on type and a new entry to the log. 30 ´700´s are in the actual fleet and this one is in the air since 31.03.2000 with SK only.
There are no stories to show here
For Russia this way
Tripsta secured the ticket details, four legs on the confirmation and just 35.00 Euro´s per leg it is
It´s 07.25 am, well ahead to schedule, just 25 "Scandinavian" minutes from the 2253 meters runway "Two-Nine" at lovely 11, ahem negative, degrees.
For a view from above
Cabin crew is one elder male, nice, one elder biz style woman and also a middle aged woman, large slim, long black hair, really nice.
Low level cruising above the bay of Alta
Cockpit crew is the male "Kaptein" with a short, experienced style welcome during boarding and the female FO with a nice bye-bye during approach.
No route or flightlevel data.
Power to gain some height!
Blue, white and the wing in between looks like nice, isn´t it?
Where the snow is
But just wait a moment, there is something else to picture than the scenery.
For example the dark blue fabric seats, really well used to say the least and the legroom is ok with the last row, 25B, just a two seater and these two are for me.
The load is 40%
And for example the safety card
Or also the snackbox
Low level cruising in direction Tromso
Yeah, it feels like really low level cruising
Yes, I like flying this way
And the sun in between the clouds, lovely
Down the fjord
Just some mountain peaks around close to Tromso
Ah, yes, call it a scenic approach
Close to the mountains
Down the valley
And above the snowy peaks
Looks like good with the sun above, isn´t it?
Touchdown at "Tromsø lufthavn Langnes" just a couple of minutes later at the 2447 meters "One-Nine".
7.55 am it is, what means also 15 minutes ahead to schedule at -2 degrees and a partly cloudy sky.
Tromso it is, but just for a swift change of planes, or not?.
