Remarks: Finally reached my 100th shot here.A big thanks to M Azizul Islam,my mentor in spotting and without his help couldn’t have come this far,Shabbir Bashar,who taught me photography and a great spotter himself,Paul Furmanski for all those mails on editing,Shudipto Ahmed,for lending me his gear and being there with me,Tanveer Yasser,for showing his love for aviation and also helping me to increase the number of spotters,Mahruf and Tahlil for promoting ‘plane spotting’.I was lucky to have my dear Tasnim Ahsan with me when I took this shot,we were actually on a date,sorry hunny if I ruined that day,this shot is dedicated to you!Sorry for the quality but I guess my love for DC-10s does show in the framing of the shot and also a big thanks to the jp crew for letting me upload at a larger size[1600px]
Remarks: Finally got her!Was on my list for a long time.Went for my evening walk on the ramp and there she was waiting for me in all her glory and under the beautiful ramp lights.In the back is a United Bangladesh ATR-72 and the departing trails belong to a Biman 777 heading to KUL
Remarks: This ATR of the RTAF skidded of rwy14 at VGZR during landing,at about 8AM local time.It was on a cross country training flight,of the total 15 pax 3 have been seriously injured.Its initially being suspected that either the right wheel collapsed or the right main landing
gear brake jammed upon touch down.I reached the airport 20mins after the incident.Nobody was
being allowed near the crash site then as it was in the BAF area of the airport.To take this shot I had to board a flight to cox's bazar on a Regent Airways flight as it was the only flight leaving in 6mins,sat in the jump seat of the dash-8,didnt fasten my seatbelts as I had a hunch that the a/c would rotate before the crash site and it did!So i jumped over the first officer's shoulder,pushed him front and took the shot!Thanks to Partho bhai,hasib bhai,zafor bhai,a former aviation analyst and also cpt Azam and Karim for letting me ride
3rd!Dedicated also to you Tasnim Ahmed!
