World Cup 2014 flights

Post by sn26567 »

Apart from the Belgian Red Devils, for which we have a special topic (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=52462), many other teams and fans will fly to Brazil to play or attend the FIFA World Cup. This topic has been created to report about those special flights.

The German team has just left from Frankfurt (FRA) to Salvador (SSA) on board of a "Fanhansa" Airbus A340-600 (D-AIHQ). The flight number? LH 2014 ! Just like Belgium !

When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

If you look for a picture of the AF plane, you can find some pictures where the type number is (partially) readable. Search for: 'les bleus' + 'avion'.
A search for the registration gives the same unmistakeable result.

F-GZCN is an A330 type.
