Note: One last go around the patch! The WC-135W Constant Phoenix, serial 61-2667 (callsign SHINR51), arrives at the Greenville Majors Airport, but not before beating up the pattern with its four screaming TF33s laying an impressive trail of...
Note: [1920px/Full HD] NH9412 (XMN-HND) JA745A flew from Xiamen to Haneda with its new livery "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" a few hours ago. It is the third “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” special livery aircraft.
Note: This former Silkair 737 now dons SQ colours. My first SQ 737 spotted. There was a time in the 2000s when the Boeing 777-200 was SQ's smallest plane type but I think another such era of a widebody being SQ's smallest plane type now looks...
Note: The four hours of wait were totally worth it! This aircraft, considered one of the highlights this year at the portuguese capital, delayed its time of departure several times, allowing us to photograph it with this astonishing light! For...

I chased for this plane 3 times in 20 days and finally I took a beautiful golden pic for her. So I had a special feeling for this old lady. Nice to see an plane at this age still serving its boss! haha :D
Note: [1600px] It is almost surreal to be able to fly the Queen of the Skies in 2022 - let alone the only remaining Asiana 747-400 passenger jet. It is a curious case why Asiana would keep a lone jet as a sub-fleet, but I am certainly not...
