Quoting Scotland1979 (Reply 1): Hi!
I do not believe both images are from same photographer, if you look closer carefully at front wheels it shows little different angles ..
I think he is saying the images were taken from different photographers, but of the same subject. Both uploads were submitted under different registrations. Highly unlikely it was two different airplanes...

After some checking, it appears that it is in fact PH-BFG, as BFY arrived 10 minutes before sunrise on May 20. Thanks for pointing that out, and will get the editors to change the reg. on the incorrect shot.

Quoting AndrewUber (Thread starter): There are some incredibly minor differences, but I would dare say that these are most likely the same ship number, not two different ones as the data describes:
Very diplomatic way of bringing it up. I had thought the same as the 3-holer that had just vacated the runway is in the exact same position in both images making it difficult for me to resolve the idea that these two photographs were of two different aircraft.

I wasn't wanting to start a firestorm - nor was I throwing any photographer under a bus. At first look I actually thought the same pic was uploaded twice by mistake (it's happened here before, no big deal). But as I later mentioned - they are both amazing shots!
Glad to see the data corrected, one of them is on the Photog's Choice top 15 right now!
