SPOTTING at Charles de Gaulle airport
Dream. Men's dream it was to fly. Mankind tried to fly over centuries. Free like a bird... A mere 100 years ago, on the 17.12.1903 the Wright brothers successfully took to the air in a sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft. The science of controlled flight grew rapidly and just 40 years later, the first jet engines were produced in war-torn Europe. I discovered spotting around three years ago. After dropping off friends at the airport, I took some time and drove around Charles de Gaulle airport and was amazed about how close one actually can get to the planes. Everywhere you go,the smell of kerosene lingers in the air. This intoxication smell makes me dream about far away destinations and aircrafts, of course.
