Note: It's always a genuine pleasure to my eyes seeing the Fighting Falcon in "action". A classic demo but exciting nevertheless! Thanks to the pilot for this low fly pass, allowing people to take a nice shot of this elegant fighter.
Note: Taxiing by and waving at the crowd before performing a nice display, as usual. My all-time favorite US fighter! Besides, this F16 is wearing the scheme celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Danish Air Force.
Note: Sitting peacefully on the overheated tarmac. This warbird is wearing the famous livery of the legendary "Normandie-Niemen" squadron, that fought fiercely the Luftwaffe on the Russian front during WW2.
Note: Quietly and effortlessly climbing out of Rwy 09R bound to JFK. The sight of this Giant has become very common nowadays at CDG. Now try to picture this beast in the Sky Team outfit. Wouldn't that be stunning?
Note: Roaring away off Rwy 09R. Believe it or not, this is my first catch of the AF's Sky Team livery. Shame for a "local" spotter... Better late than never though! Special dedicace to my buddies Nino and Nigel in Toronto. Hope you'll catch this...
Note: GF 18 bound to BAH climbing out of Rwy 08L on a beautiful morning. What a lovely "Princess" of the desert! Luckily we have the carriers from the Gulf Region displaying these stunning liveries around here!
Note: Arriving from Cairo on a rather hazy afternoon. I was so glad to have seen the new livery on a 737NG from Egyptair! What a sharp-looking bird! Totally representative of Egypt in ancient/modern way IMHO.
Note: TG 931 to BKK climbing out of Rwy 27R. I heard that this flight will be downgraded to a 773 in a near future... Geez, another boring 733! Still dreaming of catching the retro-livery before TG ending service with the Jumbo.
Note: Effortlessly climbing out of Rwy 27R bound to SIN. I'm still amazed by those massive wings! Hoping that Airbus will build the 900 version. That will undoubtedly make this gentle Giant more proportionate size-wise!
Note: UA 915 departing from Rwy 27R to Washington. With the recent merger between CO/UA. Let's hope the famous "tulip" will stay around as long as possible... Wishful thinking;);) Note the black smoke from the left engine.
