One icy morning in December, I flew with Tarom Airlines, the Romanian National Carrier, from Bucharest’s Otopeni Airport to Athens’ Eleftherios Venizelos. This is a sequence of images through the glass of the airplane’s window.
Temperature and weather conditions at the Ottopeni Airport, at the time of departure: -1 C, clear skies, frost on the ground.
The airplane reequired de-icing due to the frosty conditions.
