Note: I flew on this bird from Johannesburg to Cape Town and flew back to JHB on another company 200. This was the last and probably the last time I will fly the 737-200. Just an awesome aircraft, now flying with Shaheen Airlines as AP-BIU!
Note: This is the Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa. As far as I know it is the only one that has flown in the past 50 years. It was totally rebuilt from the ground up by the Texas Airplane Factory. This was it's last flight to date. It made one...
Note: Bearing traces of its life in the US Navy and as a firebomber, this graceful aircraft still looks inpressive, despite her fading paint scheme. Actually now a C-54P, she started life in 1945 as a C-54B, C/N DC251, with the USAAF, carrying...
Note: Almost thirty nine years after she first flew, N721JE awaits her fate, gathering dust in one of Arizona's aircraft graveyards. Taking to the air for her maiden flight in August 1965, this aircraft, c/n 18843, started life as VH-TJC with...
Note: A line up of ex Japanese Maritime Defence Force S-2s at the Marsh Aviation facility at Falcon Field. Hopefully one day one of these machines, or at least part of one of these machines, will find there way back into the air in the guise of...
Note: Still looking imposing in the late afternoon sunshine, this DC-4, or to be precise, C-54G-10-DO, was delivered to the USAAF in August 1945 as 45-0578. As its registration suggests, some of its flying "career" was with NASA. Now registered...
Note: Air Training Systems International operate a sizeable fleet of immaculate A-4s from their Williams Gateway base. Here we have N251WL taxying out for a test flight. This particular aircraft, a TA-4J, started life with the US Navy as BuNo...
Note: A view of the Alps in the background, and Klagenfurt-Woerthersee airport (KLU/LOWK), Austria, in the disappearing foreground behind the huge GE90 engine. Photo taken in sequence after photos 224462 and 224470.
Note: Beautifully located with the Alps in the nearby vicinity. A view of Klagenfurt-Woerthersee airport (KLU/LOWK) in Austria, close to the Austria-Slovenia border. Many thanks to Igor for helping in identifying this location.
