Return flight

Some photos of our flight from Japan to France

The flight is in a Boeing 777-300 registered as JA789A, a very recent airplane, its first flight was in june 2010.

Our seats are on the left side of the plane, and it’s possible to see the airport activities during taxiing, and, after takeoff, this is an excellent view of Tokyo, with Skytree, Kasai Rinkai Koen and Disneyland.

A few minutes later, we are over Japanese Alps.

It’s time for lunch. May be this is a free advertising, but in a ANA flight there is good food ! It’s not in the picture, but my Kirin beer is nearby 😉



The flight continues above the clouds, and we can see the ground many thousands kilometers away, over Denmark.

Finally, it’s the end of the flight, in Paris-CDG airport, twelve hours after takeoff.

Le "pire" moment du vol, quelques minutes avant l'atterrissage. C'est la fin des vacances !!
The “worst” time of the flight, a few minutes before landing. Holidays are over !! 🙁
