Enroute ARN-CPH. The newly painted engines are sparkling in the sun.
SE-REA is now starting her descent over southern Sweden. The spoliers (air brakes) are helping to reduce speed during descent.
The seatback Inflight Entertainment system is working fine also on final approach to runway 22L at CPH, as can be seen in this pilot´s view.
We have just landed at Kastrup. A historic and memorable flight.
