all pictures taken by Mr.Faruk Oncan. He is really one of professional spotters in Turkey. These pictures taken by him one day before new year. Attention to Malaysia airlines pictures; in the first picture, MH plane landing to rwy24 (rwy24 is shorter than main runways 36R/18L) and in other picture, taking off from 18R because of rwy18L was maintenance.

Hakan,

Thanks for sharing the link: excellent pictures of great airliners, I must admit: he must be using a Bigma, seeing the focal length...

So, no problems spotting and photographing planes at Yesilkoy ??? huh.gif

Would love to go there one weekend this year wink.gif

Certainly Istanbul is one of the most scenic and spectacular airport for aviation spotting. Both from outside the cockpit and inside as well. Was there around September last year in the Stal Alliance long pencil. Hakan, if you could show me around for spotting, I wouldn't mind to request for a flight to IST via DXB one day.

Hakan,

Thanks for sharing; it's a Fokker 100, however, not a 70 (see the double emergency-exits above the wing) wink.gif

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.
