Of course insiders know, what 92. NFF stands for. It's the abbreviation of
What else there is to say about class 92 and what our members have to say about themselves, you'll find further down on this page and on the "Old Times" page.
Have fun reading and looking at the pictures!
or better: was us ....
then, about 30 years ago in "Leuchtenburg" castle.
link to the "big picture"
... and that's how some of us looked at a reunion in 1989
... do we have to give credit to our wifes that our age doesn't show?
Here is a picture together with them in front of the new flight academy building in Bremen.
The 4th person from the right is Dieter Niemann, the creator of the beautiful sketches.
|..... finally an up to date picture, taken in October 2004 during our reunion at the Badersee.|
|He still plays the guitar. So if you ever happen to see a captain with a guitar box instead of a flight kit, that's certainly Tom!|
|... always and everywhere was playing guitar|
|That happended in the very beginning of our flight training in Goodyear. Meanwhile Jo is flying the
|"Tower ... what is your position???"|
|Are Vincent's favourite colours still blue and yellow?
Or has Jutta converted him to the new corporate Lufthansa design of corrugated steel?
We will see!
...or had he shifted his preferences already on the first day of his groundcourse to black and yellow (Condor colours), when he first met his Jutta, who used to fly for Condor at that time?
|Our "Mr. Lufthansa"|
| Unfortunately we do not have a sketch of Wolfgang (Bimbo) Kruse. He decided to leave us about halfway through the term and rather distracted Brasilian stewardesses, who were studying in Seeheim (a Lufthansa training facility south of Frankfurt, where he worked at reception after he left us and before he went to university). His influence was so strong that -when asked for a "Frankfurter Allgemeine" by a passenger- they did not know, if that was a red wine or a newspaper.
When Dieter Nieman, a friend of Peter Rosag was drawing the sketches, Wolfgang had already left the class.
|Meanwhile he's as much into bees and honey as into beer and white sausages.|
|...does not give up white sausage and beer, even in the aircraft.|
|Not quite true! There's been one girl only the entire time!|
|...demonstrates his affection for American girls.|
|Could that have been the reason why he was never available at the phone, when a certain stewardess "Nancy" of American Airlines called and asked for him?|
|... did not see very much of America, as his nose always was under the Buick hood.|
|In spite of the fact that Peter has a pond in his garden nowadays, his interest has shifted to model-planes. He has passed his passion on to his son, who is a very successful model-builder and -pilot. Anybody surprised?|
|...managed to launch his model ship even in Arizona's desert.|
|Not the full truth either. The poor duck did not lough, instead Guenter's party had a hard time not tipping the canoes from laughter, when he almost shot and sank the decoys of other hunters (He already had taken aim).|
|...kill consisted only of those ducks, which laughed their heads off about him.|
|What did Deer Valley Tower say? "I don't care, whatever you do, just clear the runway!"
Nowadays commands of a provincial tower just make him smile ... as long as they don't keep him out of Las Vegas.
|...would have preferred somewhat longer runways in America.|
|As a native coastliner he naturally preferred the plastic hull of a Nordic Folkeboat or an H-boat, especially since he made German Champion in these two types of sailboats!
Meanwhile he favours a somewhat more comfortable yacht.
|...rear end could not adapt as well to a saddle as to an aircraft seat.|
|.... and we do not even mention the Buick engine, which caused Alex so much trouble ....|
|...supported America's economy, by increasing the turnover of the Goddyear tire company.|
