Wow, nice picture! Japanese government indeed used a Thai Sky L1011 for their military charters to KWI (Kuwait Airport). They also fly their own B747-400 to the Gulf Region to replace/transport the soldiers.

 

Yukihiro-san, Komaki airport should be much more quiet nowadays since the new Chubu airport has opened?

Eric, Yes VERY quiet nowadays. Can see only J-AIR(under JAL flight number) CRJs...

But on weekdays you might see lot of JASDF C-130 + few scheduled C-1 flight. :p

Also test flights from Mitsubishi factory is interest for military spotters.

Saturday, Sunday so terrible only CRJ + few C172...

Now that is what we should be doing at Jln Selangor, BKI - instead of tip-toeing and shoving cameras through holes in the fence !! Remarkably similar isn't it ?

We could have had a ' Rombongan ' ( Field Trip ) to JHB to get a shot since we know the spotting location already which was posted by Idham Earlier

 

Man...drive down to JHB for one aircraft ah...

 

Semangat sungguh! :lol:

7 hrs driving for just one aircraft? Wow, that's a real hard core spotter. Good for you! :lol:

As for the ladders, here in Singapore (and probably Malaysia too) you will land up in the police station for sure. :p

Yes I am!! spent each 7 hrs and spent about 250SGD for gas and toll B)

In Japan the situation is same can put ladders at local airport only.

HND careful for security and OKO-Yokota most dangerous airport in Japan must avoid both MP and local police.

Anyway I am pro for hit and away style spotting at these airport + the paradise HKT. B)

From YanKeat (another "YK") in SIN, EX-088 has been operating on PX's behalf today.

 

763 P2-ANG (Ex- ZK-NCE) has a tail strike last week on landing in POM. Repairs were carried out in BNE.
