Helsinki to Stocklholm in DC-10

Recommended Posts

leg 14 takes from Helsinki to Stockholm in a DC-10-30.  yes, it is a rather short trip of 219NM for a heavy, but we had a lot of passengers to move so we used the KLM DC-10-30.

From EFHK to ESSA. Block on to Block off time: 1h 12m.  takeoff to touchdown: 50m

FL 200, 35,000lbs of fuel on board

Welcome to Sweden Richard!

 

There's a Hostel at the airport built in a retired 747, perhaps a good place to get some shut eye  ;)

 

Great shots as well!

Thanks Micke! I'll check it out. But after a flight in the DC-10 I might prefer sonething else. Got a spare room at your place?
