Welcome to my Aviation Pages!

[02 July 2007] Dear visitors & friends:

Well, what I said below almost three years ago didn't quite turn out that way, but more on that in a few months. At the moment I put this note here to let you know that I had to move the site. Therefore, some pages will not be available for some time due to webspace size constraints, some links will be broken and the like. I try to get a referral from the old site location put in place, but I can't promise that at the moment. I hope you still find the site useful - if you are missing something that is currently unavailable drop me a note and I'll try to put it up again.

See you soon -- Lutz

[15 August 2004] Dear visitors & friends:

More frequent visitors to these pages may have noted the lack of updates during the last 6 or 8 months. Perhaps some who sent me an e-mail also wondered why they did not get an answer, which is not very nice, I have to admit. But since fall 2003 things were just too busy and I had to set up priorities. The reason for all those delays is the fact that I was job hunting last fall and then finally found a new job at DLR Braunschweig starting December 1, 2003 - without 'interruption' by a few days off after the end of my time at IAG on November 30. The implications of the new job and two moves to Bremen in the north of Germany (temporarily) and then later to Braunschweig required all my spare time so I had to put maintenance of the website on the back burner. Now things are improving slowly with regard to my free time, and I plan on returning to update the website regularly again, as well as answering e-mails within a few days again. To all who wrote and did not get an answer, I would like to apologize. Their e-mails have not been lost, and I am going to answer them in the coming weeks as time allows. Keep those e-mails coming!

Happy flying & surfing! -- Lutz

Here you will find mainly aviation related things, with emphasis on my Jodel DR.1050 D-EHIE, Aviation Photography and other miscellaneous aviation stuff. Not everything is quite ready, but I'll try to make the 'dead' links into 'live' links as fast as my free time and my other interests allow. So feel free to browse around and check if you can find something that is of interest to you. If you have any comments, suggestions or additions you would like to contribute to my site, I would be glad to hear from you - just send me an e-mail. But now enough said -
