Book ‘Dear Sky’ Depicts Routine Operations of The Planes and People of North Korea’s Airline

Air Koryo is the strictest domestic airline of North Korea. However, worldwide sanctions and environmental constraints have decreased the airline's global destinations with just China and Vladivostok staying The older Antonovs, Ilyushins and Tupolevs seldom fly overseas and consequently look superfluous. However, these aircraft and their crews have been maintained ready for surgery. Occasional domestic flights would be even more significant to your flight attendants and pilots to drill and also to retain their expertise and techniques.

In his series Dear Sky, Dutch photographer Arthur Mebius catches the regular surgeries by Air Koryo team which looks like a rehearsed drama of care, controls, and processes. It is a gorgeous ground control dance in which a picture of pride and dedication appears.
