Re: A View through my Lens

Welcome to the site Mark :handshake:

Awesome pic to kick off with! Hope it will be the first of many.

During LIMA 2016 I presume?

Re: Seen at FALA (Lanseria)

Another C-17 at Lanseria. Luckily fitted nicely with a visiting Guftstream IV I 'needed' to see. While the Gulfstream was packed away in a corner and could not really be photographed I caught the chubby one on departure although with the sun against me. 07-7182 C-17A Globemaster III United States Ai...

Re: GDs Fun Flights - Europe 2017

Thanks again Mr. Bell! After arrival at Riga I had some time to spend but not really enough to venture into town, so obviously I decided to have a look at the Aviation Museum at the airport. Sadly there was no one around to let me in so had to peek through the fence. Pretty messy place but with a fi...

Re: Helicopter Pictures

Not the worlds best photo - shot during taxi in a Aegean A320 at Athens - but thought SX-HPB MBB Bo-105CBS-5 of the Hellenic Police was fairly interesting. At least first time I see a Bo-105 with such a pointy nose. Behind is MBB Bk-117C1 of the Hellenic Fire Sevices. Also quite surprised by the siz...

Quick Lanseria visit this afternoon - very nice light already around 16:00 :Like: Former Botswana Casa 235. Was sold to to Togo Air Force as 5V-MBM years ago but deal apparently failed as aircraft never left Lanseria. First it became ZS-SOO and as can be seen now ZU-SOO. Surely the largest aircraft ...

Re: GDs Fun Flights - Europe 2017

Thx guys :thumbsup1: What pizza did you have :thinking: Quattro Formagi. If I have to be honest the choice to go Italian was made mainly because it was the only place in the terminal I could find that had reasonable views of the ramps of FBOs Abelag and ExecuJet. Outside the restaurant was this love...

Re: GDs Fun Flights - Europe 2017

After the much needed Pizza I had a look around and found PH-KZU Fokker 70 of KLM Cityhopper in the special Anthony Fokker colour scheme to mark the retirement of the type at the end of October this year. Would have been nice with a F70 goodbye flight but guess I shouldn't be greedy. The blue tailed...

Welcome back Michael. Can't believe its been a whole month. Lucky you. Looking forward to the rest of the trip as you slowly post your pics. Thanks Marc.
