Flying across Norway

Pictures from various flights across Norway

Image: Beautiful afternoon on a flight home from Gardermoen. Image: Ready for departure at Gardermoen after a stressful cancellation, followed by a rescheduling, followed by another cancellation, followed by a last-minute run to the gate.
I had to take an alternate route via Bergen rather than flying directly back to Førde. Image: The fields of Romerike, just after turning west after the takeoff. Image: Flying over the woodland areas in the west of Romerike. Image: Lake Tyrifjorden. Image: Hardangervidda, a.k.a. Hoth (yes, the movie was filmed here). Image: Takeoff from Bergen Airport Flesland, heading north to Førde. Image: Final approach to Bringeland. The town of Sande in the middle of the picture. Image: Approximate flight path coming in to Førde Airport Bringeland. These planes practically turn on a dime. Image: Early morning flight from Førde. We're on final approach to Gardermoen, and the view is fantastic. Image: The inside of the cabin in one of Widerøe's Bombardier (formerly de Havilland) Dash 8-100s. Image: Trondheim Airport Værnes, heading south after a northbound takeoff. Image: The inside of the cabin in one of Norwegian's Boeing 737-800s. Image: Flying from Bergen to Oslo. Uvdal below.
