  1. Thank you. Well Gav, that's the best I can do else photo would be too big for the forum format. I was indeed very lucky to get so many specials in such good summer weather. Typical humid hazy summer in Tokyo was all blown away by Typhoon Man-yi on the day of my arrival. And i was blessed with clear blue sunny days during almost my entire trip. Let's continue ... 18 September 2013. Thank you for viewing. To be continued.
  2. Here's some shots from during my recent spotting trip to HND. 17 September 2013 End of day 1. Thanks for viewing.
  3. This thread has been long neglected. Poor thing ... On this fine Tuesday morning, I had Double Royal Brunei in the form of V8-BKH - Sultan's private jet & V8-DLA - RB's latest toy B788 as BI421 from BWN. Thanks for viewing. Cheers.

  6. Thanks Francis !! Second installment of VTBS spotting. One will notice thru this set of photos that :- 1. Russian love Thailand especially during the winter months. Obviously!! 2. Metallic purple on the older TG aircraft looks much better than the new 'cheap-looking' matte purple. 3. One out of the three Transaero B744 is equipped with RR RB-211 instead PW 4000 series engines. Enjoy. Cheers !!
  7. Thanks Uncle Pieter. What a shame we didn't manage to meet at AMS last month. Nordwind was braking really hard to make that 2nd HST. Wheel was 'smoking' hot for a good 2 mins ...

Forward demo J-class cabin. Electrochromic windows. Takes about 60sec to change from one shade to another. More EY cabin shots with some rather psychedelic mood lighting. Aft Cabin Crew bunk - cozy!!

  18. Very nice photos ... Thanks Uncle Vu Loc for the link. Can understand most with Google translate. Seem to be a good destination for spotting.
  19. OT: Since no one has pointed out the possibility of this spotter being framed and sabotaged, I will play devil's advocate here. The reason being, I clearly remembered one group on FB was specially created to target the spotter mentioned here. I was invited to join, left a message condemning such hate group and left the group. No time for such child play ... really. Well ... I think someone is out there to get him. Admin: Pls feel free to delete my post if you deem this unsuitable. After all, this thread was created to share plane photos from SIN.
  20. 17/06 Good weather with some light breeze at the beach. Spotting time... Qatari638 was opb B77L (A7-BBD) instead of the usual B77W. BG84 S2-AFL was delayed again to 1540. Biman may as well make this its STA. This is one of two B737NG opb Biman. I was hoping that it's still wearing the old scheme ... alas new scheme which is plain boring. OH-LQD As mentioned by TY, 9V-SPN was out for an air test wearing Transaero colour. Landed at the wrong runway!! Asialink Cargo KP004 from Batam opb PK-KRJ 'Kheya'. Looked sensational in such brilliant late afternoon light. VN747 VN-A323 from Hanoi arriving at 6pm! I was told this is used to be a vampire flight arriving just after sunset. GLEX 5000 N689WM repositioned from Seletar. AirPhil Express RP-C8388 from Cebu arrived 20mins earlier at 1835... unfortunately the setting sun was blocked by some low cloud. Thanks for viewing. Cheers.
  21. Nice show case of GA aircraft found in Malaysia. 9M-LEE is ex Singapore Youth Flying Club 9V-BOL (s/n 2816087)
  22. Thanks guy ... I have been out of the loop for a while. Will just shoot anything that come my way. The BG B738 and GA B735 were my favorite!
  23. 10/06/11 Weather was a mixed bag. At one time, some passing rain cloud threatened to ruin the whole afternoon for spotting. Nice to see two Shanghai Airline Cargo MD-11F arrived in the afternoon. This is B-2179, the other was B-2178. CX dull silver bullet B-HUK. Ex CX Cargo silver bullet with the same rego B-HUS. BA One World G-CIVZ I still find the B763ER with winglet sleek n sexy! JA621A She seems to be a regular for now. As mentioned before, too blant! Don't like Garuda's new color B735 looked cute. PK-GGF Thanks for the delayed BG84. We got this Biman Bangladesh B738 S2-AFM. Nice color! Thanks for viewing. Cheers
  24. From my experience spotting in HND, (as mentioned by TK) morning at JAL terminal - T1, mid afternoon can go catch some international arrival n departure at international terminal, then move to ANA terminal - T2 in the afternoon. All observation deck very spotter-friendly. One can do some really good nite spotting in T2 South observation deck as it's horizontal wires that separating u from the aircrafts. All terminals are connected by free shuttle bus at the arrival level. Enjoy!
  25. Thanks Flee for the photos ... good to know that I didn't miss much. Was busy with work over the weekend...
