The original "jimbei" jet, seen arriving in beautiful evening light short final on RWY36.
What's better than a clear sky and the ocean as backdrop, plus the only wide body of the day!
An aging product that really needs an update, while the seats on the rest of the fleet receive a mid-life freshen up. This particular aircraft will retire without any make over on the seats.
First ever touch down of a Jumbo in 8 years, a date for all Japan spotters to remember.
Special open day for the return of the 747 to Itami after a 8 years absence, a very special day for the visitors and spotters.
No doubt I am looking at the most wear out jetliner on the Japanese soil.
While the standard color might be boring, I always admire the quality and quantity of the specially schemed aircraft from Air Asia.
