Now for the photo I mentioned in my journal.
As I have said this is a technical photo, a photo oppurtunity that I simply coulden't miss.
You might know that for the past two weeks I have spent my time on Sardinia to do an onwing job on a jet engine.
With it being the last day I simply coulden't let my chance slip and I asked the few simple words:"Mind if I get a photo of the cockpit?"
With those words it was done.
And here you have it.
The newly overhauled, cleaned and refurbished cockpit of an Airbus 320 aircraft.
For reasons of copyright I'm not listing the aircraft registration or owner.
Lets just say that the aircraft was leased from a Chinese airline to a certain airline in Europe, an airline that has close cooperation with Meridiana who is based at Olbia, Costa Smeralda airport.
