2014.08.17 Spotting Session - Part 1

Hello everyone. It has been long. But it was a good wait. It has been raining almost everytime I go spotting. It has greatly increased my ability to lie at a perfect angle so as to be able to snap the planes coming in, while still be in the shade from the rain.

But guess what??! This time, it was SUNNY and BRIGHT. One could not have asked for better lighting than that day. So here it is. The first bright set of photos after a long time.

Indonesia AirAsia A320 (PK-AXL)

9M-AJE, equipped with sharklets

Of course we cannot have Airbuses all day. So to break the trend, this baby Boeing flew in gracefully. Short and sweet. The winglets sure make the wings look that much longer.

Sriwijaya Air B737-524 (PK-CLO)

And we are back to Airbuses. The next shot is one that I do not get everytime. Lots of light, even enough to shine into the engine intakes, and enough for me to push the shutter speed to 1/800th of a second. This was at F8.0. Should I get this opportunity again, would be opening up the aperture to F5.6, and snapping at about 1/1600th or 1/2000th of a second, seeing if I am able to freeze the engine fan blades.


Malindo Air ATR72-600 (9M-LML)

Malindo came in after all the jets, flying pass some thick cloud formations. They have rather distinctive light arrangements and the ATRs are quite easily recognisable from a distance.

AirAsia (9M-AJN)

Firefly ATR72-600 (9M-FIB)

9M-FIB is now fitted with a new paint job. Are they going to be doing this for all the new -600 series that are delivered??

That is all for now, will be adding the back segment soon, with UPS' 767, FedEx's A310 and SilkAir's 738. Stay Tuned.........

*PS :- trying out a different programme in resizing the images. There may be slight changes in image quality.
