Very nice Raffles, 6W-HLA AW139 Senegal Government :champion:

Also nice pics B407, if only they could film a local F1 race in the near future.

Re: GDs Fun Flights - Europe 2017

Okay then - just so you don't think I have only planes on my mind :sparkle: Compulsory visit to the Acropolis (at least for me as a first timer to Athens and Greece). The main bit was packed in scaffolding, but this shed was a reasonable backdrop. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4486/23955020148_003f...

Anyone have an idea of how much "smaller" the -800 variant will be?

The -800 is the new -200 and the -900 the new -300.
I believe airframe-wise very little if any difference. Engines is key.

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

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 ...
