Re: Priority screening help.

Hi, The prio window is open for 24h, counting from the moment the first photo is accepted. This goes for any photo that qualifies for priority screening. For the EK special, I understand that it's the first daytime photo, but we've never really made an exception for daytime vs. nighttime photos as ...

Priority screening help.

Hi, I really appreciate the screeners’ hard work, however I’m quite disappointed by their decisions made today. I had put two photos on my screening queue, both being EK A388 special (A6-EEB)/Photo ID 5482897 and 5472899, respectively. Obviously we don’t have any daytime shots for A6-EEB yet, and gi...

Re: Planespotting in London

Hi Block40Osan, As you say UK weather is unpredictable, but westerly/northerly winds are typical throughout winter. London normally sees a few clear January days and I'd certainly hope you'd see some sun during such a long stay, however we can go weeks at a time with very little sunshine unfortunat...

Planespotting in London

Hello everyone, I‘m traveling to London on January 13th and staying until the 28th, and planning to do some planespotting while I'm there. This would be my first time spotting in London, and whilst I read many other posts on this forum I still have few questions that are yet to be answered. First of...

Did any other 747, aside from QF’s 747-438ERs, get the 777-style interior?


IIRC, the very last four 744s at China Airlines (B-18210/18211/18212/18215) has exactly the same one.

Re: TC-JMM and HL7792

Has anyone spotted these birds lately? They have seemed to dropped off the face of the earth since they ran into each other at Atatürk I was at IST over the w/e and the Asiana A330 is still in the Turkish Technic area. My SBS box actually picked it up several times, so maybe it's close to returning...

Hyakuri spotting tips?

Hi all, I’m planning to visit JASDF Hyakuri this November, along with spotting at some other interesting bases like Iruma and Atsugi. While I’m mostly keen on photographing Phantoms, it is most likely that I might spend 2~3 days at Hyakuri and move to other places. It looks like Hyakuri offers a gre...

Re: Where are SQ’s 77Ws going?

Storage. Well the ones that are being stored are 77E and 773, not 77W. Given that SQ is currently deploying their fleet of 27 77W’s and a bunch of 359 with long-haul routes, I can hardly agree with that those 77W are to be sent for storage before 2020. Some routes previously served with 77E and 773...

Absolutely revolting. Shame on United and Delta. No, just shame on United. Delta parked their N661US open for people to see, United has no such thing. Delta has announced a retirement flight between LAX and DTW a rather affordable route as far as what 747s normally fly, AFAIK, UA hasn't announced s...

So far DL has 58 767-300ER in its fleet. The earliest batches (the ones with PW engines) are due to HMV at the end of this year and ex. Gulf ones almost reached 125,000hrs of flight time which will also require HMV very soon. While these one are the eldest 763ER in DL fleet, anybody happen to know w...

In terms of authencitity, I NEVER consider SkyTrax is a nice way of evaluating airlines. Look at the best economy award 2016, OZ won the first prize but do you know how poor their Y class is? Some of their 333/772s are 'still' flying with 6.5" PTV while every KE widebody fleet has 10.6/12 inch ...

Re: Etihad A340s - will any of the -600s see the new colours?

EY A340s are scheduled to leave the fleet by the end of 2017. I'm pretty sure EY's not going to paint their A346 in new colours just for one-more-year usage. Would be highly appreciated if they paint 346 though!

I enjoyed shooting the takeoffs on rwy 16 from the observation deck very much, even though that configuration didn't last long when I was there. In any case, fully agree that having runways 33/34 in use gives you more photo opportunities. Glad you enjoyed your time here! Yes since 16/34 is not the ...

Re: About Spotting in Korea

Is the spotting deck at GMP worth a visit ? Unfortunately, The answer is 'No'. As the opening time of the deck is 1000hrs, the time when the sun moves to the opposite side, you'll get a backlit shot for all-day long. Probably for summer season it'll be useful until 1100hrs when shooting a runway ac...

From research so far, it seems the direction of wind at this time (February) means RWY 02L + RWY 02C will see the majority of movements (opposing to the RWY 20 direction) so Changi beach park wouldn't be any good during my stay.
