Remarks: [Canon 5D Mark III + Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L USM] Air to Air Spotting in St. Maarten isn't that easy as in other airports. Here you have to deal with Straight-In Rwy 10 Approaches, Left or Right Downwinds Approaches Rwy 10, Rwy 28 Departures, Short-Field Take-Offs, All of them 1,500ft Below You, Constantly Maintaining Visual Separation with all traffic and being in a Cessna! Thanks to all the Crew of Air Traffic Controller in Juliana Control Tower for making this possible.
Remarks: This is an aerial view of Florence airport. As you can see it has an unusual runway wich is only 1750 m (1,09 mi) long. Landing and take off is pretty difficult becouse you have mountains on the north side and an highway on the south side. Biggest scheduled commercial planes wich land here are A319 and B717. Shooted from I-IAFO many thanks to my friend Michele wich has made possible the realization of this photo.
Remarks:Speedbird 142 holding short right in front of us, for nearly 15 minutes, as she begins her journey back home to London Heathrow International Airport. I was on my 50mm lens, and this is all I could fit in my lens. This was a bad start for her flight as she was pushed back from gate and was made to wait for 10-15 mins, then this delay in front of us, and again a delay of 10-15 minutes on Charlie Whiskey 1. Definitely an unhappy crew and passengers on this flight.
Remarks: [1400 px] Factory fresh bird delivered to 9W just 2-3 weeks prior to our airside spotting sessions! I offer my best wishes to all Jet Airways staff & management for having clinched the deal with Etihad & dedicate this picture to them!
Remarks: [1400 px] On board VT-SCE operating BOM-BLR, we are awaiting push back at 6:05 am for a scheduled 6:15 am departure form BOM. This is one of the earliest A319s delivered to Air India/Indian & still continues to wear a hybrid livery as seen here.
I dedicate this shot to Siddharth Bhandary who specializes in these cabin shots & this would not have been possible without studying his exif settings.
Remarks: [1600px] A panoramic vista of McCarran Airport is provided courtesy of seat 2F aboard an Alaska Airlines 737 as we prepare to join the downwind to runway 7R. Of note in this photo: construction of Terminal 3, which is now home to all international carriers serving LAS, as well as several domestic airlines, has yet to even begin. Also, it's interesting to note the 30+ US Airways aircraft parked at the A/B concourses. US shuttered its former America West hub here in the wake of the 2008 fuel crisis, but at this point in the summer of 2007, it was still nearly at its peak, offering over 200 daily flights to 70+ international and domestic markets.
