Remarks:KLM835 tests her stabilizers as she taxies out for Bali amidst a late-afternoon drizzle. Those GE90s are capable of spraying enough water to soak the windows of the viewing mall on the third floor, so you won't want to be standing behind those on a rainy day!
Remarks: Dragging myself up early in the morning for spotting can be dreary business, especially when the weather turns out poorly, but all it takes is a nice special livery to kick me awake! Pictured here is one of two logojets carrying the mascots of the Beijing 2008 Olympics, pushing out for her flight to Beijing and Xiamen.
Remarks: This scene seems to show the state of the airline industry today: legacy carriers continuously upgrading their products to stay in the lead, with up-and-coming budget airlines always on their backs, clamoring for a growing share of the pie!
Remarks: A look into the First Class cabin aboard the now-retired 747-400. Twelve luxurious woodgrain and leather-appointed SkySuites occupied the nose section of what was once SIA's flagship jet; the Airline operated up to 42 examples since 1989, and retired its last 744 in April 2012.
