On July 25, 2016 Lufthansa made this announcement:

The FC Bayern Munich took off on July 25, 2016 on a Lufthansa Airbus A340-600 for an eleven-day USA trip on the “FCB Audi Summer Tour 2016”. To mark the occasion, the long-haul aircraft with the registration D-AIHK has been covered with a special FC Bayern Munich design. In addition to the FC Bayern Munich logo, ten players from the club are also pictured on the fuselage: Jérôme Boateng, Robert Lewandowski, Manuel Neuer, Douglas Costa and Arturo Vidal. Also shown in sporting action: Franck Ribéry, David Alaba, Thomas Müller, Philipp Lahm and Arjen Robben. The Lufthansa Airbus will be flying from Munich to four continents with this design for a year.

Lufthansa has been the official carrier of FC Bayern Munich since 2004. In addition to its long-term cooperation with FC Bayern Munich, the airline also works with the German Football Association (DFB) and supports numerous popular sports. Moreover, the airline is a national sponsor of the sports foundation Deutsche Sporthilfe, and has been a partner of the German Olympic Sports Committee (DOSB) for many years. This traditionally includes flying the German team to the Olympic Games and, as a partner of the National Paralympic Committee (DBS), to the Paralympics.

“Charlie Charlie” was involved in a landing accident at Wasilla, AK on August 5, 2016

"Charlie Charlie" was involved in a landing accident at Wasilla, AK on August 5, 2016

The pictured Fly Denali DHC-2T Turbo Beaver registered as N30CC (known in the company as “Charlie Charlie”) was involved in an accident at Wasilla, Alaska on Friday, August 5, 2016.

The Beaver was landing at Wasilla to refuel before continuing to its base at Healy, when a visiting Cessna 210 landed on top of it over the runway. Wasilla does not have an ATC facility, therefore each aircraft makes a “blind call” on the airport frequency. No serious injuries were reported.

This photo was taken on Ruth Glacier, Denali on June 8, 2016 before the tragic accident.
