Hello I am Jan(ek) and I run this website featuring colour profile illustrations. I have been interested in commercial aviation since my childhood and my first flight was with a 330-seated Lockheed L-1011-1 TriStar of LTU International Airways from Düsseldorf (DUS) to Las Palmas (LPA). The return flight took place 10 days later with an Aerospatiale SE-210 Caravelle 10R equipped with 89 passenger seats and took 5:20h (!) due to very strong headwinds. That’s when the aircraft reached its limits. The aircraft types on the outbound and return flights could not have been more different. From that moment on, I was fascinated.
