This week I was nominated for the Daily Aviation Photo Challenge by Jorge Ruivo and Stefano Caporelli, to post a daily image for 7 days.Its hard to choose the lucky seven out of ten years as a photographer, but the picture that Im sharing today was an easy pick, taken last September when I headed to North Korea for a one week dream flying all type of Russian aircrafts with the countrys mighty national airline: Air Koryo.Ive always been fascinated by soviet era countries, so the DPRK was a must on my wishlist for quite a long time. After one year of planning, I was finally there. This exact Ilyushin Il-62 was the first aircraft that I flew on a domestic route, on a trip to Mount Paektu and back (amazing place by the way!), a type of aircraft that I never imagined that I would ever fly, especially in 2015!Theres a lot to tell about this trip so Ill leave it to another day, but the reason that I chose this picture its not only because of the feelings that this specific airframe triggers in me, but also because a few days later I was scheduled for another flight with it, but I was faced with a last minute dilemma that wasnt on the program before: we were given the option of instead of going in the 30 minute joyride, to go to the runway and take some pictures of the takeoff from the outside of course. After spending the night thinking about it, I decided not to take the flight, with a clear conscience that I will never fly this model again in my life, but with the mind blowing idea that I would be making planespotting on Pyongyang Airports main runway!!! Should I remind you that were in North Korea?... While already on the spot, just a mere five meters away from the runways edge (something that I never did so close anywhere in the world!), I was still thinking if I had done the right choice, or one of the biggest mistakes of my life, but after I snapped this frame I was sure. I had won the lottery!

North Korea '13: The trip to North Korea wasn't just about exploring the country, but also to fly (old) Russian hardware. Today's aviation photo is a window view from the scenic flight with one of Air Koryo's Ilyushin Il-62's, a type that is very rare in the modern day world. Definitely a Russian classic and only ~18 active frames are left at the moment I write this, with the majority being used by governments and military. Before the tour, we had the possibility to select (buy) seats and after doing my research, 28A was chosen. This was the last row on the plane and would offer a good view of the engines and wing. Legroom was just about 40cm/16

Boarding on Air Koryo, the only 1 star rating airlines in the world (the worst). Well that rating isn't true. It's pretty normal, not the best flight but definitely not the worst. Small plane, comfort seats. Free meals & newspapers onboard. Gorgeous flight attendants. The most important thing was that I arrived back to Beijing safe & sound with all the passengers onboard!14th Sep 2015.. .
