Re: GDs Fun Flights - Europe 2017

Short continuation of the trip report today with little aviation content In Denmark we went looking for other flying creatures. And what do you do in a country with bad weather and too much money? Apparently you build an interactive indoor birding experience https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4453/37985...

Re: Cool airplane pics from wherever (2017)

Awesome pics Raffles!

The ion-thruster propulsion system doesn't seem to be used much - 9H-BEC has been standing in the same corner seemingly engineless (to those not in the know) since at least May.

Okay then - just so you don't think I have only planes on my mind 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_003fa6e5f1_b.j...

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.

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...
