Great memories at tanker bases when P2V's and these -7's fire up. Always more exciting than hearing a turbine. I started my maint days on Coast Guard HU-15, just don't get the level of greasy hands on a turbine. But you don't get the bleeding knuckels when tearing a turbine down. RIP, legends in the history of aviation.

Love the pic. Brings back good memories. I was with Sabre back in the late 90s and we built ATA’s website. One of many small airlines that are long gone. Back in the day when airlines tried to get your business by providing good service.

This is an excellent photograph of the beautiful aircraft. I appreciate the clear view of the mountains in the background and how they enhance the aircraft. Great work.

Nice to see some tourists again. Hopefully, the beach will wash back up again. Caught the KLM the other day landing so see how things progress. Nice photo as always.

Beautifull

Written on 09/18/2020 by Francesco Lo Cicero

Saw a video of one of these flying in Canada on YouTube. It came in multiple times to the same lake to fill up its tank. The pilot kept taking the right side pontoon over a dock to keep up on the step. And you can hear the people keep talking about the pilot's skills. It really is skills flying them

A few red Virgin Blues ended up with white noses and a few later white Virgin Australia planes got red noses. The latter were for SIDS awareness Red Nose Day and I’d wondered if, as VB planes were already red, the noses were painted white for the same charity. Someone will know.

Aircraft is on taxiway Alpha 4 about 1 km from my photo position and is just about to turn left onto Alpha 5 for Alpha 6 then Lima to gate 18, the one and only international gate during current restrictions.

Written on 09/18/2020 by Gavin Hughes

Thanks for the compliment Ken.

I'd reckon it wasn't a Qantas 748 because they never went past the 744. In any event, any Qantas heavy would be a charter, but again, I don't think they've put any in the air and some are asking why not, if only to bring Australians home that are stranded overseas.

They are going to fly a 787 shortly - 7 hour sightseeing flight SYD-SYD over about a quarter of the country. All tickets sold in 10 minutes according to reports at $4000 each. Plane won't be full due to social distancing rules of course.

Written on 09/18/2020 by Gavin Hughes

Indeed, good shot. Ground reflection helps light the underside at least and it appears you don't have to be too far away that heat haze becomes a problem in this location.

Written on 09/17/2020 by Gavin Hughes

Thanks Mike. Snakes aren't the only problem, though are dangerous ones, but heat haze renders the spot pointless because of the distance to the subjects. Time to find another spot.

Written on 09/17/2020 by Gavin Hughes

Three shots, all superb.

Written on 09/17/2020 by Gavin Hughes

I agree with Gary-very quirky!

Written on 09/17/2020 by mike prendergast

couldn't find one. The only numbers I could find were: 14-11 on the nose. I think they had just finished converting it and had yet to paint it on.

Written on 09/17/2020 by Johnathan Guif

Nice shot Gavin-just carry some snake repellent!

Superb! 5*X5*

Takes me back to 5:AM run-ups @ MHT a few decades ago. Fun times for (some) mechanics, not so much for anybody living nearby the airport. These guys are NOISY!
Great shot Jake
