Flying over Spectacular Greenland from Europe to USA

2년 전

Sometimes you're lucky. Sometimes you're extremely lucky. I was just a few days ago. I was flying from Europe (Switzerland) to the United States, and on our way we passed Greenland. I had the window seat so I was able to shoot a nice picture.


The North Atlantic is very busy with air traffic. As such, part of the traffic from Europe is put further North. There is a system called the North Atlantic Organised Track System (NAT-OTS) which controls the entrance and movement of airplanes across. This also actually saves fuel, as the earth is a sphere so the shortest distance to some place is not necessarily a straight line!

beautiful photo

On first of May this year:


Very excellent post

Hola @martinphoto
Eres una persona afortunada. Tus fotografías son estupendas.
No he tenido la suerte de volar ni a Groenlandia ni a ningún otro país.
He viajado mucho en aviones pero solo en rutas nacionales.
Ahhhhhhh. Soy ya cercano a la tercera edad. Pero creo que pronto iré a visitar a mi hijo a República Dominicana y luego iré a las Islas Canarias. Me muero porque llegué la hora. Es posible que después de viejo me dedique a recorrer otros países.
Saludos y Gracias por el artículo.
