If you are looking for photos of a specific aircraft type, use this menu. Please note that, due to space constraints, this menu includes only some of the more requested aircraft in our database.
If the aircraft you're searching for is not in this list, use the 'Keywords' field further down in the search menus.
Some menu selections include a generic aircraft model, as well as more specific variants of that airliner.
These variants are denoted by a - before the aircraft name.
Selecting 'Boeing 747,' for example, will show results featuring all Boeing 747 jetliners in our database, while selecting '- Boeing 747-200' will show all Boeing 747-200 variants in our database (Boeing 747-200, Boeing 747-212B, Boeing 747-283F, etc.)
If you are looking for photos of a specific airline, use this menu.
Please note that, due to space constraints, this menu includes only airlines of which 10 or more photos exist in our database.
If the airline you're searching for is not in this list, use the 'Keywords' field further down in the search menu.
Airlines are listed in alphabetical order.
If you are looking for photos taken in a specific country, or at a specific airport, use this menu.
All countries represented in our database are included in this selection menu, which is updated automatically as the database grows.
There must be at least 20 photos from a specific airport in the database before that airport is added to this list.
Use this option to include only photos taken by a specific photographer in your search.
This pulldown menu, in addition to each photographer available as a search limiter, also shows the number of photos currently in the database for each specific photographer, enclosed in brackets.
For example, an option of: - Paul Jones  .. indicates that there are 550 total photos taken by Paul Jones currently in the database.
Note: The total number of photos, enclosed in brackets, is updated four (4) times hourly, and may be slightly inaccurate.
Photographers must have 100 or more photos in the database before their name is included in this selection menu.. The 'All Photographers' selection is the default selection for this option.
If you are looking for a specific category of photo, use this menu.
You may select to display only photos from certain categories, such as Special Paintschemes, Flight Deck photos, etc. New categories are constantly being added to this list.
The 'Keywords' field is perhaps the most useful field included in our search engine. Using this field, you may search for any word, term, or combinations of terms in our database. Every photo field is covered by the Keywords search routine.
The Keywords field is ideal for searching for such specifics as aircraft registrations, photographers' names, specific airport/city names, specific paintschemes (i.e. 'Wunala Dreaming'), etc. To use the Keywords field, begin by selecting a Keyworld search field. You may select either a specific database field (airline, aircraft, etc.), or choose to match your keyword to all database fields.
Next, select a Keyword limiter. There are three options from which to choose: - is exactly - starts with - contains Select the appropriate limiter for your search, then enter the keyword(s) you wish to search in the box on the right.
The Keywords search field is not case-sensitive.
Use this option to include only photos taken in a specific year in your search.
This pulldown menu, in addition to each year available as a search limiter, also shows the number of photos currently in the database for each specific year, enclosed in brackets. For example, an option of: - 2003  .. indicates that there are 55,000 total photos taken in the year 2003 currently in the database. *Note: The total number of photos, enclosed in brackets, is updated four (4) times hourly, and may be slightly inaccurate.
Additionally, decade ranges (1990-1999, etc.) are available as selections in this menu. Selecting a decade range will show all photos matching your other search criteria from the selected decade. The 'All Years' selection is the default selection for this option.
Note: Originally owned and operated by ANA, the jumbo then flew for now-defunct budget long-haul carrier Oasis Hong Kong Airlines as B-LFD from 2007 up until their demise in 2008. It was stored in Victorville and then returned to the air flying...
Note: This was one of the most stunning special schemes ever created! The scheme was removed in end of 2005 when TGO received, at the time, the new colours. The frame continues marching on with Thai today.
Note: While cloudy, it was rather dark and overcast in the background enhancing the brightness on the jumbo.
This still remains my favourite JAL scheme. JAL was one of the largest, if not the largest, operator of the 747 at one point in...
Note: I can't articulate enough how much I miss the JAL DC-10s! This frame was delivered to the carrier in 1976 and also flew for their now-defunct subsidiary Japan Asia Airways as well. It was eventually withdrawn from use and stored in...
Note: Jetstar Pacific was formerly known as Pacific Airways but is now part of the Jetstar network/brand, joining their other operations in Singapore, Australia & Japan. The A320 fleet stands at 15 aircraft.
Note: Arriving from Kathmandu is one of two A330-200s in the Nepal Airlines fleet. At the moment we seem to be getting the A330s, previously we saw deployment of the A320 & also the 757 for a long time before that.
Note: WOW was a cargo alliance between Singapore Airlines Cargo, Lufhansa Cargo & other airlines that ultimately got disbanded after failing to achieve their objectives. 9V-SFA is no longer with SQ, instead it is currently in service with El Al...
Note: It's not too often the visibility and light are good enough for aviation photos in HKG outside of the summer, but minimal haze & nice light greeted N356KD upon its arrival in Hong Kong. This is an ex-JAL & Atlas Air 747.
Note: This particular version of the KLM scheme remains my favourite, it has a more complete and classic look to it. The 777 was finally introduced to the HKG route in 2017, giving us some much needed variety.
Note: They have ended all 747-400 operations, with last flights in October 2018. Their fleet now consists of eight 747-8Fs. This particular frame was stored in November 2018 and is due to enter service with Atlas Air.
Note: 9V-TRK is captured here in a sort of hybrid state - the tail still sporting Tigerair colours, and winglets too, however Scoot titles are already reflecting on the fuselage. The Airbus has since been repainted into full Scoot colours.
