I’ve been on a crazy schedule these days. After flying from Portland to Munich I headed to the Austrian Alps late Friday afternoon, to meet my significant other, who arrived there by bus, for a weekend in the Gosau valley in Oberösterreich. On my way I passed Salzburg, where the Hangar 7 at the airport is the home of the Flying Bulls, the still operational fleet of vintage aircraft of Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz. As an airplane nut, I couldn’t pass on the opportunity for a quick stop to check out the aircrafts on display, like the North American B-25J Mitchell, a Boeing Stearman, a Chance Vought F4U Corsair (which I saw flying at the Oregon International Air Show the other week) and a Douglas DC6-B, plus many more. Also in the presentation is a vast collection of Red Bull racing cars. For some more impressions continue after the jump….
Highlight was watching the engine start and takeoff of the Douglas DC-6B propliner. The sound of this huge radial engines is music to the ears of any airplane lover.
As camera I used my Olympus PEN-F with the mZuiko 12mm F/2 prime lens.
After the weekend in Austria it’s two days at home, then its back across the pond for two days in Chicago and then a good week in Portland. Crazy times.
I wish all of you a great and sunny Sunday.
