As planned, Norman and I at one end of Observation Hill (near Papi lights of 32R) while TK and Gavin at the other end. I knew we were going to be lucky today as Norman's force of dark side was strong. I could feel it..........

Then when Norman's good luck came, we got this:-

But its nothing.......


Then we got this too:-

Nice shot there. I wonder why Thai using long haul A345 instead the regular A330 or 777.

That's an Incredible shot angle of MPD and MRD. I saw MPD at fly above putrajaya last Tuesday and saw MRD flew over my house last week, I'm not sure where it's heading to.

Hi Gavin,

Thanks for the intro...

Well, since I missed the morning traffic I made it a point to go in the evening at around 4pm. As usual, I always have to reach the weather station when a wide body had just landed. So far I have missed 2 MH 744, 1 SQ 772, 1 CX, 1 Gulf air, or something like that.. its a gold color bus, thats all I recall... and so on...

So after cursing at myself missing yet another MH744, I started working:

9V-SRI, at 300mm

KLM Asia at far away

9M-MME at 195mm (about 300mm for 35mm)

9M-MMW at 270mm (about 400mm for 35mm)

B-LAB CX

PK-MBX, Merpati 732

OK, I think I need to split the session up...

Coming up, Part II...
Went over to end of 32L, met Yong there. I think some of you know him. Thanks to him I stayed there till 2 more MH from London and HK to end my spotting day...

Stay tune

Ben-G

I don't know whether I was lucky... or I brought luck today...
Since I have to leave before TG's A346 left (it arrived when I was about to leave) sad.gif

Anyway on to my side of story....


I arrived with my Nikon D70s plus kit lens (18-70mm)
and some little knowledge learned from the manual and from the net...
Very little know-how of dSLR in aviation photography...

So with the puny kit lens (but a wonderful tool for potraits tho'... biggrin.gif )


This is what I got initially
so far... mad.gif

but TK really kept his promise....
he brought the GOLD SeventyThreeHundred laugh.gif & loan it to me
laugh.gif

So now I can get this...

Then with Azahan covering the Southern tip of Obs Hill
and TK&Gavin the Northern tip...

I can get full body
user posted image

I can get Half Body
user posted image

I can get Tail
user posted image

I can get Gears
user posted image

I can get Frontal
user posted image

and I can get the Obligatory NOSE SHOTS....

I'm so happy today.... since not a single shot of empty runways and
empty clouds.... long gone the LCD & shutter lags....
Yippeeeee... laugh.gif laugh.gif
