Temperatures continue to plummet well beyond -20C and make the outside world eerily beautiful. At least early at dawn before the scene is blanketed by the ever present frost fog (lifting up from the valley in which Norway's largest river flows). One can appreciate why we natives think 'blue' is a warm colour.

Congrats, Bent. Nice catch! Did they do a fly-past over your neighbourhood?

Congratulations!  By the way, how did you know that your team is on board this particular jet?  Flightradar24?

Building of Houtindustrie / Woodindustry. Ironically almost the only wood on their building are a few neglected boards ::)

I live not far from CPH, so I normally see incoming flights in the distance.

Yes both Flightradar24 and the national TV, and there is very few flights from Cairo to Copenhagen, so easy to find ;)
