Another Friday with charter at Åre Östersund Airport. Jonas went out to shoot, despite the rain, and met up with Simon who flew up from Stockholm after finishing his ATPL exams.
Thursday offered perfect weather with sun, no wind and almost 20° C. Friday on the other hand was spent under a grey overcast sky with plenty of rain.
This did however not stop us to shoot during a couple of hours at Åre Östersund Airport. Jonas went out to take the landing of Corendon from Antalya and wait for Simon to arrive with SAS066 at 09:20 AM. Simon, who now has finished his ATPL exams will stay in Östersund for a couple of weeks.
Other than the usual Corendon and domestic flights, Orbest (previously Iberworld) began to traffic the airport from Palma, Mallorca, this Friday.

We were told this was the last friction tester of it's kind after the airforce left the airport some years ago. The Swedavia staff, kind as always, posed willingly.
Some additional video footage for the Vlog is being filmed. All our filmed material is captured by a Canon EOS 7D with a Røde VideoMic.
Simon looks pleased to be back in Östersund.
A somewhat rare visitor heading down to Copenhagen. This Falcon 2000 has visited the airport before, but we don't know in what context.
Direktlfyg arriving form Umeå.
Orbest taking off to sunny Mallorca, leaving us behind in the rain.
And last, but far from least, episode seven of our second season Vlog. Today we filmed a lot of material, so it's a bit longer than previous episodes. And of course with English subtitles!
