Germania Airbus A319-112 D-ASTZ takes off at the Airport Bern-Belp in Switzerland. This was a charter flight to Saragossa, the capital city of the autonomous community of Aragon in Spain. The jet blast caused a wonderful spray effect from the wet runway. I love to observe powerful and close-up take-offs. The engine power, the acceleration, the vibrations and the lift off of a heavy weighing aircraft is a highly impressive moment and a miracle of engineering.

Enjoy it as well as the cow bells in the background.
