Heavy Planes !! Boeing 747 and MD-11 Arrivals by UPS. The weekly Parcel planes arrive on a rather untypical runway at Cologne. Runway 24 is the shortest runway at Cologne and they had to land on this runway because the long runway 14L was closed due to construction works.
Every Sunday you are able to watch lots of United Parcel Service (UPS) Heavies arriving at Cologne. Cologne is the European hub of this Airline, which is based in Louisville, Kentucky, (US) The main runway (RWY14/32 – 4000m, 13120ft ) at Cologne was closed due to construction works. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to make some videos of fully loaded Heavies arriving on the relatively short runway 24 (2400m//7200ft). Did anyone see the rabbit? Thanks for watching, I hope you like it and as usual please don` t forget to rate.
