Re: Received An Email From Emirates

Same here, they approached me previously and asked for a photo to use on Facebook. There's no way I was going to get anything back in return so I just let them use it with credit.

Hi all,

Can anyone please point out where the noise is in this photo? Also I'd say the fuselage is quite bright but I don't see where it's blown out. Any feedback appreciated, thanks.

Re: Tips for Photos from Helicopters

I've only done it once and the biggest recommendation I have is to keep the shutter speed up. There are all sorts of vibrations going on and gusty winds if you're hanging out the side of the helicopter and I did loose a few shots to blurriness.

Easyjet use the same seat width on their A320's as British Airways and most other legacy carries use on their 787's. On the A320 family the result is a very wide aisle, actually 40 % wider than on the 787. T...
