let me know when you come in Turkey, I can manage with turkish spootters and they can show you spotting points around the field.


Hakan,

Hope you wouldn't mind introducing them to me too, as IST definitely high on my 'to do' list; just waiting for the weather to become better/warmer smile.gif

of course Peter, when summer session comes, spooters will be there. But somethings going wrong in Istanbul. Generally we were waking up snowy or rainy days until last years in this session, but today I used air conditions on my car!!!! I think global weather changes hitted to Istanbul this year, we haven't get serious rain or snow in here and all days are sunny. This shouldn't be, so we are expecting bad weathers in April and May, maybe in June.

I have flown on an A332 on a few occasions, and I did not realize the wingspan was so huge. Nice perspective on the airbus.

Yeah, that's what I love about boarding/departure hall..............I get to see the plane and when I'm inside I still feel like in a tube either on wide/narrowbody................I wish I can see the plane while flying....haha

which picture? if you give me picture link I can check it. Actually as I remember totally 3 or 4 times ripped (each one seperate aircraft) baloons when hitted by aircrafts. baloons are very sensitive "touching" and support teams changed ripped baloons in only 3 minutes each time!

smile.gif thats true, when hitting the baloons you will get penalty points. actually rules as below;

there are two different colored marked baloons. red strip and blue strip. planes must be cross around or between "red strip" markered baloons as "kinfe edge" positions. and they must be cross "blue strip" markered baloons as "wings leveled".

there were 3 slalom ballons and the rest of them pairs or two pairs with red or blue marker.

planes must be correct level between or around baloons, not too high or not too low. Correct level means , pilots (in knife edge position) or wings (in wings leveled position) must be the same level with colored strips. if pilot can not to able correct position and passed high he get 3 seconds penalty.

if pilot ripped baloons, he must be continue race track and finish race and then he takes 10 second penalty for each ripped baloons.

Approach pictures to rwy 06 by Levent Ishakoglu again. All pictures taken from small garden in front of rwy 36 and rwy 06. When you drink Turkish Tea in that place you can see the airplanes which are approaching to rwy 06 or 36R/L.

I hope to join see them. My Favorite THY A310 "Aras" and first picture; look at left below corner for Canadair CL215 turning to final behind AeroSvit.
