My first turboprop!

Let’s go back to Slovenia and how it started!

I have left from Pristina and I didn’t expected at all to fly on an old fashioned turboprop or whatever it is called!

I was almost scared but then it turned out to be an amazing trip!

Of course we couldn’t afford to fly high as the common planes do but I think I have enjoyed it even more!

It was a little scary somehow because when it bends you almost have the impression to be on an earlier fighter aircraft.

No, I have never board one of those and I hope I will never do, by the way I think that the feeling must be more or less the same.

I am sorry for the low quality of the pics but the view was really impressive.

  1. Oh my, you must be the only one who has had a good experience with Adria recently. πŸ˜€ There are huge delays and unwanted trips to other airports and things like that. The company is going down… πŸ™

    1. Thank you Tamara. I am always surprised of this strange effect but I am very glad that my pictures help other people travelling around. I use to plan my posts in advance bug I will try to make some more in real time so that it will be really like travelling all together! 😊πŸ’ͺ

  2. Beautiful pictures. I haven’t flown in years. Little turbo props not my favorite either. Have a cousin whose young daughter is attending pilot school. She has flown for at least 2 years…as soon as she could get a license…and she wants to become a commercial pilot. I am content to see other people’s’ pictures!

    1. Hi Shauna, thank you for stopping by. Well, I think that pilots must have a totally different vision respect ours of simple passengers! I suppose it must be a great job but unfortunately is not for me πŸ˜…

  3. Adria have now ceased trading and filed for bankruptcy. A big shame for not only their 500+ staff but also for people like me who fondly remember their once reliable and professional service, and a direct route from Manchester to Ljubljana.

      1. Never a turboprop from Manchester but the last two times was an Airbus A319 and Bombardier CRJ900 jet, the latter being significantly smaller than the former. By the time of their demise they leased ‘their’ entire fleet and therefore didn’t own any planes.

        1. This is what I was thinking about, a turboprop would have been a little too light to afford the Channel πŸ€” by the way I am sorry to learn about this bankruptcy, it is never a good thing.

          1. Ha, you’d be surprised! I flew Salzburg to Manchester a few weeks ago on a turboprop, flying a lowland and subsequently longer route over Germany and Belgium instead of the Alps.
