One of the highlights of the day: seeing a heavy Airbus A343 climb out from runway 08L at HNL. 08L/26R is used by light traffic, but when the Reef Runway is closed, watching heavies roar off from this runway is quite a sight (as they must make an immediate right bank after liftoff). CI1 to TPE roars off from the runway with the Waianae mountains as a nice background . . . the crew did not make the right turn soon enough so downtown Honolulu must have heard a nice loud roar!

I see this almost every day as I work here. At the time this photo was taken, my company handled China airlines in Honolulu!

I had the opportunity to have a jump seat in those planes, photos of the types and the airlines, but not the exact plane.
