It seems that the Maswings ATR72-600 fleet has left the Maswings fleet.

Yes, the titles and logo on the tail are no more...

Being shifted around the MAS fleet and its subsidiaries?

 

One of those few times the shutter speed is less than 1/300. Helps in blurring the props.

This FedEx touched down a bit further into the runway. Lighting started to get a bit better at this point.

Thanks Hakan.

I must say that it was a fruitful trip.

 

Till next time.

Did an afternoon session with planes coming in from the North using Runway 22. Mostly dominated by AirAsia.

 

First one for the session. The one with the ASEAN Basketball League Livery.

The A319s look rather stubby. Can only imagine how much cuter the A318 will look like in real life.

And here I thought all the AJx series were those in the newer schemes and with sharklets. This one was rather retro.

With all the hype of AirAsia's A320NEO, I shall join in as well.

The engines are big enough to be blocked by the taxiway markers

 

With quite a number of "stock photos" of head-on A320s, here's the difference between the new and the old

 

29826277212_b6bbb691fd_c.jpg

 

The engines are still noticeable from this angle

 

29940609845_d78922407e_c.jpg

 

 

 

A very quick glance and those two F18s look like a couple of X-wing fighters...

 

In attack position eh...

Very nice study of the Neo, SS.

Thank you very much for that :good:

Looks like there isn't anything strikingly different A320neo vs sharklets fitted A320ceo - yeah, the two things hanging there are bigger, but you'll need a second or even third glance to be able to tell them apart :)

Probably easier now with 9M-NEO in her distinctive pinkish livery, but when you have the regularly dressed neo red ants joining the crowd .....

Thanks Guys.

 

The sound from the engines are really different. Sounds quieter too (hopefully not biased :) ).

I do agree with that. Not much of a difference, apart from the brighter and whiter landing lights. I somehow find it easier to tell LH's A320Neos apart than AirAsia's. Could be due to the colour scheme.

The LED landing lights are also on the latest Ceos. LH Neos have PW GTFs - these have fans that are a little larger than those on the CFM LEAPs.

Spotting trip 2 weeks ago, almost 4 hours worth.

 

One of the main aim was to get the A320Neo (my first attempt), though it did not show up. Snapped other greater things though.

China Southern has sent many types to Penang. I've gotten the A319, the A320 and now the A321. Looking forward to their 737s and really hopefully, their 757s.
