Nice Surprises At Your Local Airport?

Sat Mar 25, 2006 10:16 pm

Any surprise a/c or airlines?
I am happy when I see Hibuscus (don't know if thats spelt right) (@ LHR), and new livery a/c. My surprise recently was yesterday when I saw a Swiss A332, which is a bit ironic because a couple of days before I was reading a thread on here and someone said they very occasionally send 330's, and thinking "Wow, I'd like to see that!!! What are the chances, eh? I literally looked up and saw it!

Great stuff.
I came. I saw. I conquered

The UAE 737BBJ's, 74SP's and one off's such as the 772LR are nice to see at LGW. Also down at ESH you get the odd Citation or a couple or rarities. This one arrived a couple of days ago...

At Singapore's Seletar Airport, I was travelling to Tioman when I happened to see 2 737-x00 of which one wwas Jet Airways and the other America West or some other american airline.

I believe it was there for painting or servicing, though not sure as I only had 2 minutes to look at that

Regards
Hmmmmm....

Well I'd name a few
At Zagreb Pleso it was ERJ-170 demonstrator on tour,

I was driving with my bike to take some pics of regular visitors when this suddenly landed over my head

When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward...
