Staffan is right... Maybe it would work for US citizens, but, what about the thousands of spotters worldwide who travel to the US for photos/tailnumber hunting ? They would not be able to be have a background screen made by the FAA, so would they provide local made background reports translated to e...Jump to post
Hi folks, Some time ago, while surfing on the net, I came across an air to air photo showing a British Airways B767-300ER(Union Flag livery) which was being used on air refuelling trails. It had refuelling pods on the wing and two F18 flying in formation with him... My mistake I forgot to bookmark t...Jump to post
========================== So, what you're saying is just because we require slides (in my case Kody) that it's no longer a hobby? ========================== Never said that. What I said is, regardless of KR or Fuji AGFA or what, all this should be an enjoyment activity, and most of the people see ...Jump to post
Lingus... We don't have KR down here in Brazil, so we have to use Fuji or Ektachrome. I used Eckta many years ago but since 5 years I'm a Fuji user, mainly Velvia 50 or Provia 100F... I also had the opportunity to use KR, both 25 and 64, and what I can say, without trying to start and Fuji x KR war,...Jump to post
Hello Chris, Regarding Rio de Janeiro: forget about it. Rio was indeed the main international gateway for Brazil, but this was true until the mid 80´s when Sao Paulo´s new international airport was opened. In less than 10 years it overtook Rio in passangers and movement numbers. Since Sept.11 this s...Jump to post
Servus Peter... Here you have it: "Dear Sir, The reason for asking this photo is that it has a great photographic value for me, as it is a very nice photo and also has great significance on the sentimental side as my son David M. Llamas was the indeed the first officer of this flight on this very da...Jump to post
Hi, This was 100% sure made from another plane, and I would bet my photo gear that it was made on the NATS airspace. Vertical separation is down to 1000ft (if I'm correct) and you can really make nice shots. I have a friend, F/O on Swissair MD11s, which is also a very active spotter and photog. and ...Jump to post
It was rejected, the image was only 800x600, so I will scan it again and save on a bigger format.

Nighthawk, A flight dispatcher, or Flight Ops Officer (depending on the airline or country they use one or other name), is the guy who prepares all the paperwork (flight plan, weather, notams, etc etc) for the pilots, who later seat their butts <img src="/discussions/graphics/smile.gif" ALT="S...Jump to post
Hi Bio15 The process depends on the airline.. by the airline I worked tree years as Flight Dispatcher, I was responsible for all planning out of Sao Paulo(southeast Brazil) to Argentina or Chile on the southbound sectors and from Sao Paulo to Europe, where the company is based. So it was my work to ...Jump to post
OO-AOG, I worked for a major European airline as FOO(Flight Ops Officer) during tree years down here in Sao Paulo, and we always had to sign the flight plans. Actually this is/was the main difference between us and the FOAs(Flight Ops Assistants).. Is that, under new JAR/OPS regulations, that FOOs h...Jump to post

Hi folks, Just got a photo of a CASA CN235 with the Armeé de l'Air roundel and code 330-IF on it. Wasn't able to find any information anywhere on the net about it, including on Scramble database. I'm curious to know if it is still active, and in this case in which unit/base. Any help appreciated. Ch...Jump to post
Hi LGW, Well, I think the first big question is why is the guy interested in the photos ? He already told you that those are the shots he is missing in his collection, so in this case I (this is my point of view) would charge him only with the expenses, let's say on two 10x15cm paper prints plus pos...Jump to post

Hello [email protected], Yes it is possible, most of the time. This "tail codes" are assigned to the aircraft and are linked to the registration. I don't know the system used to assign them though. Well, you can link the code with the register using some databases, there's a very good online source, direct lin...Jump to post
