That makes this aircraft one of the fastest long range jets. Definitely one of my favourite planes.

Enjoy the awesome engine sound especially when the aircraft starts its turn on the runway.
Liverpool FC flew to Switzerland and landet on time at the Airport Bern-Belp. A Boeing 737-33A of Titan Airways was chartered for this flight.

Liverpool FC played against BSC Young Boys on 20th September 2012 at Stade de Suisse in Berne. This was without a doubt a very popular match because Liverpool FC is one of the leading Premier Leage football clubs.

WOW, what an extraordinary cool Captain! Skywork Airlines is famous for being helpfull and friendly. But I haven never seen a captain holding thumbs up and even saluting me LOL. Have you ever flown with Skywork Airlines? It is highly recommendable! Each flight is an enjoyable journey where you can relax up in the skies! A lovely snack and a still water is included in the ticket price. But if you would like to have anything else you will get it for a reasonable price at the bar. You may even use an updated I-Pad during the flight and read the latest newspaper or magazines on it. There are even games, videos and other stuff on it. You won't get bored while flying SkyWork. The airline is home based in Switzerland at Airport Bern-Belp and will soon fly to over 30 destinations within Europe!
I love to fly Skywork!
The weather announcment of the Airport Bern-Belp said: Wind sheared runway 14. This means the difference of wind speed and direction as well as different pressure levels over a short distance. Pilots have to pay full attention. It is especially risky during take off and landing. In case of a wind shear short before landing the pilots have to make go around. But it was not too bad that day but still interesting to spot the landing.
