Note: This is only the second time I’ve ever photographed an An-124! Overjoyed. The weather conditions were challenging however the aged & rugged freighter rotated towards the end of the runway & then made a slow climb-out resulting in a...
Note: ANA's 772ERs weren't all that interesting to photograph for me years ago, they had so many & were a frequent sight. Now it's a different story - only 10 frames left & won't be long before the remaining are retired.
Note: This frame along with 4 other 777-300s delivered in the late 90s are still going strong with All Nippon Airways domestically. Great photographing these non-ER 773s amongst a sea of more modern aircraft like 787s.
Note: The second time I've come across Air China's "Beautiful Sichuan" livery. This livery is different to the one on B-6365. The purpose behind this scheme is to promote Sichuan province as a tourism destination.
Note: Three years after this photo was taken Air Canada ended pax 767 ops. And since then Air Canada has started operating dedicated 767 freighters comprising a mixture of converted 767s and new-build freighters.
Note: My first time taking photos of Air Busan. Japan is probably the best place to be outside of Korea if you want to photograph all the Korean carriers. This frame is currently sporting the "World Expo 2030" scheme promoting Busan's bid,...
Note: Stored at Woensdrecht in the Netherlands between April 2021 - April 2022 and returned to service with the airline thereafter in all white with just titles. Originally delivered to the Spanish airline in Dec 2008.
Note: DHK003 off to Nagoya in picturesque summer weather. Look forward to photographing their converted 777-200LR freighters, that the airline has on order, in the future. These are the 772LRs being converted for cargo use by the Mammoth...
Note: Israel-based CAL Cargo was rebranded to Challenge Airlines in 2022. The airline currently operates 3 747 freighters & will also operate 2 converted 767 freighters in the future through other Challenge Group subsidiary airlines.
