Welcome to Turkey’s fabulous Istanbul International Airport, named after the patriot, founder and father of modern day Turkey, Mustafa Kamal Ataturk. Istanbul straddles the Bosporus connecting Europe with Asia, and this city has been a centre of world commerce for two thousand years. Today, its bustling airport is one of the busiest and most interesting in the region.
We join airline videographer Henry Tenby for a fascinating visit to this remarkably busy airport, where airlines from Middle East, Asia, Europe and the former Russian States mix company with Turkish flag carrier Turkish Airlines and their busy fleet.
This double DVD set features over three hours on non-stop, heart-pounding airliner action, filmed along-side the active runway over a several day visit in September, 2005. Professionally filmed with broadcast cameras on film industry tripods, this DVD takes you up close to the action.
In addition to Turkish Airlines’ complete fleet from the BAe 146 to the A340, this DVD also features action footage of all the other Turkish airlines including Atlasjet, Fly Air, Inter Airlines, KTHY, MNG Cargo, Onur Air, World Focus as well as the two CL215 waterbombers operated by the City of Istanbul. Middle East carriers include Iraqi Airways’ 737-200, Libyan Arab’s A300, RAM, MEA, Saudia (777, 747-200 & A300 leased), Royal Jordanian, and the UAE Government (747SP aborted take-off and 737).
Former Russian States are well represented with lots of Russian aircraft including Belavia Tu154, several Aeroflot Tu154s, Bulgarian Air Charter Tu154, several Donbass Yak 42s, Atyrau Airways Tu134, URAL Airlines Tu154, and several unidentified Yak42s and Tu154s. Azerbaijan A320 and 757, Uzbekistan A310, and a wide range of European carriers complete the scene.
