Island operation means harsh environment and exposure to sea water, hence a little rinse under fresh water to minimize the chance of corrosion. I found it quite interesting to look at!
2 oneworld B777 together with JAL's Terminal 1 as background, you can see the multi-level roof top obervation deck on top of T1.
The "must have" night shot at Naha, taken from the 4th floor indoor observation area which is good for photography from noon to the last departure.
Kinda hard to guess the airline just by looking at the symbol on the winglet, well I have no clue what it means also.
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.
