Photo of the Week: Touch and Go training in Akureyri, Northern Iceland

In this series, we feature a new photo or photo series each week! Send us your photos here for a chance to be featured.

This week's photo of the week was sent to us by Marie-Laure Parsy (@introspections.nomades) with a brief note:

Touch and Go training while on a right-hand pattern for runway 01 in Akureyri (BIAR), Northern Iceland. We practiced landings on a Diamond DA-40 aircraft during a Commercial Operation flight departing from Keflavik (BIKF) in the South West. Crossing the Icelandic Highlands at FL095, we enjoyed the permanent day of the high latitudes and hours of gleaming twilight after resting in Akureyri, the Capital of the North. A beautiful airport surrounded by mountains and touched by the sea, BIAR is home to the steepest approach in Iceland with a 5.3°GP for the ILS runway 01. Fun times for IR-students and IR-rated pilots :)

Thanks for another beautiful photo Marie-Laure!
