Europe '09 - Istanbul, UK & Prague

4 Jun 2009 to 7 Jul 2009

This trip took me across Europe from Istanbul to London and included several days in Prague, CZ.

In an effort to get the two Turkish Airlines Star Alliance 737s, I took a weekend trip from Prague to Istanbul with my friend Filip. It was nice to meet some of the local spotters in IST. My friend and I enjoyed the time spent with them and also their help and advise.

In the UK very little time was spent at London Heathrow due to the weather; instead I visited The RAF Museum in London & The Imperial War Museum in Duxford.
