Do You Know The Owner Of The Planes?

Fri Jan 30, 2009 3:03 pm

Hi
I have some shots taken from the ground. I want to know the owner of the planes (Airline). Anybody knows that, please tell me…

Hello Saeed,

Number one is Qatar Airways, an A340-600.
Number three is Qatar Airways too, but an A330, and in a special Doha colour scheme,
and number four is Singapore Airlines, a B747.

Cheers

I'm inclined to say number 5 is an Edelweiss A330 and number 2 is China Airlines 744?

I assume these were taken over Iran somewhere?

No. 5 perhaps a China Eastern A330-200?

No. 6 looks to me like a 747 classic (can't see any winglets) but I can't tell whose it could be. Iran Air new scheme perhaps? One no-one's photographed yet with blue engines? Or Aerolineas Argentinas?

The IR Cargo A300 in the revised scheme has blue eingines - since aircraft in Iran are rarely photographed could it possibly be a 747 classic in the new livery? Just a thought. Otherwise I'm inclined to say Aerolineas Argentinas.

I think number 6 is Atlas Air. Some of their 747-200s are white with blue engines and incredibly dirty.

I thought about Atlas but figured the the blue band around the rear fuselage would be visible if it was one of theirs. Didn't know thay had that hybrid thing! My money's on that!

Still think 5 is more likely China Eastern than Edelweiss.

I beg to differ  

Unfortunately the database is up to it's old tricks so can't provide pictures, but China Eastern's livery has a red cheat line that would show as a band round the rear fuselage, similar to the SQ shot. The red doesn't cover nearly enough of the nose either. Edelweiss is painted to the exact same extent as in the photograph in the original post.

Feel free to prove me wrong as I am totally unfamiliar with Edelweiss' routes but I'm personally quite confident that's what it is  

Edit: Here's a couple of pictures to hopefully clear things up a little:

I don't see the regestration on the underside of the wing, so I am inclined to think it is U.S. regestered.

#2 KLM 744 maybe? You can make out some reg under the wing, KLM's would be in the same spot.

I think you're quite correct, would match the Maledives flight I guess!

I stand corrected, number 2 is either China Airlines or China Airlines Cargo.

Good eye Tom!

Number 6 could be Air Atlanta Icelandic? They have the classic 747.

As far as I know not in that scheme any more. I agree it's 99.9% got to be the Atlas hybrid.

For getting towards full frame, a telescope with a focal length of perhaps 1200mm, for example

http://www.flugzeugbilder.de/show.php?id=722013

There are a few groups online with photos, but I can't find any links at the moment.

For photographic lenses you need at least a 500mm lens with a 2x converter, but then you'll be pushing the exposure limit and will probably need 400-800ISO to get a decent shutter speed. That is unless you've got a very expensive 500mm lens.

Yes, very possible. Do a search for 'digiscoping'. A lot of bird watchers (the feathered variety!) use spotting scopes with compact cameras attached to them with a converter / mounting bracket. You can get focal lengths up to 3,000 - 4,000 mm + with the right system and a big enough budget!
