HB-DGL Zahedan
Zahedan. Refueling the Airplane out of fuel barrels, a new experience for us. Professionally handled by the local groundcrew, with fire-extinguisher in different distances an a sued filter. We were impressed.

Sven Girsperger, who is a geologist and avid flyer with small planes to remote areas about the world commented the prictures, which Nicolas took during the flight vom Esfahan to Zahedan as follows:
The desert which you flew over is the Desert LUT. A desert, which had in the old days a bad reputation (Polo, Hedin and others). What is shown in the pictures you took are the folds of the Zagros mountains and also of the Diapires (salt domes of central Persia. Sven had worked in this area in his younger days to find (successfully) oil.
Great Sven, thanks for the explanations, it is much more to know the structure than just seeing and admiring an interesting structure
