In this summary we want to show the highlights of the first quarter (January, February and March) 2020, we found on websites and social media channels like Facebook, Youtube or Instagram. We will also present our list in a video in which we comment on the contributions together with our community.
We startet the year with our preparation for the planespotter meetup at 31st of January at Frankfurt airport. Naturally this some of the highlights have something to do with this date. There are some more streams worth watching!
