Southern Germany Round Flight in a Cessna 172

Yesterday a friend took me on a flight in a Cessna 172 aircraft. It was a great opportunity to take some aerial photography of rural Bavaria and Regensburg, a beautiful city where the river Regen flows into the river Danube (German: Donau). Regensburg is also famous for its beautiful cathedral and its historic city center.

We started our trip yesterday, 26th of August 2017 at the airfield of Landshut, a small city in the southeast of Germany. After preparing the Cessna for about 90 mins, we took off at 9:27 GMT in a westerly direction and slowly turned to the north heading towards Regensburg. After about 20 minutes we approached the city and made a large right turn around it. At around 10:20 GMT we landed in Landshut again, took the aircraft back into the hangar, and enjoyed lunch at the airfield restaurant that serves croatian cuisine.

While in the air, I used my Canon EOS 7D and the Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 IS USM lens to create some shots. Find here the results:
