I don't mean something like an Eva Air 747 landing at LAS, but unusual paint schemes or other odd bits.

Check this one out...everyone was wondering why they would put Virgin winglets on a Midway 737, this was just before Midway went bust

The plane was then repainted in full Virgin BLue c/s.

Beautiful high contrast scene. Nice low sun light under the wing, with pitch dark clouds. Did get wet wet wet that evening, but it was sure worth the result:

You looked pretty dry on TV (in case you were the photographer with the ochre polo shirt & the 10D in hand).

I have no idea what I was wearing at the time [besides the 10D and 100-400L IS Smile/happy/getting dizzy.
The rain came later that evening when I was at the western end of the field waiting for BA001 departure to thunder overhead.

A United Nations Hercules. Pretty rare. But I have seen it there in Cyprus many times, so it surprised me that no one else had cathed her at LCA. Guess there's not much spotter activity over there...  Sad

How come Jay's pics have planes coming from the clouds tucking their geat away? I thought they tuck their geat away seconds after takeoff - not 10 thousand feet....


I'm confused.

The only rare shots I have were rejected. It was of a Delta 752 that made a medical emergency landing in Sitka, AK this last summer. So I can't really show them since I have no where to host them really.
