I was flying QF 7 / SYD-DFW and asked to go on boarded before the masses so I could get pictures of an entirely empty A380.

Some recent pictures:

Landing at Ljubljana, Slovenia (LJU):



Landing at Podgorica, Montenegro (TGD). Due to the mountainous terrain, this airport has one of the weirdest approaches that I know of: you come in high right above the airport, and then literally do a slow spiral to get down.

Flying right over the airport, during the second spiral:



Skadar Lake National Park:





Flying low over Skadar Lake during the third spiral:



Final approach over Podgorica:



Takeoff from Zagreb, Croatia (ZAG):



Takeoff from Tromsø, Norway (TOS):



Flying over Svalbard:



The tiny Russian settlement of Barentsburg, on approach to Longyearbyen, Svalbard (LYR):

Nice pics. The spiral landing is basically landing in DEN coming from the west. The airport is just past the mountains, so you need to spiral to get down. And I don't know about TGD, but it also makes for an exciting take off, and you take off west right into the mountains, so the takeoffs are usually quite steep from DEN if flying west.

Interesting... I've only landed in DEN from the east, so I've never seen such a landing before.

And I didn't take off from TGD, as I did an open jaw to SPU. I hear it is indeed supposed to be a beautiful takeoff.
