Continuing on... here are some of the heavies that came in for the day. The great and sunny weather continued all the way to the end of the session. Yes, it was HOT, but well worth it.
UPS B767-34AF (N361UP)
This was actually one of my intended catch of the day. Back then (maybe about 2 years back), I used to always ask myself.. Why do I keep getting the UPS but not the FedEx MD-11. Then as time went by, I got more and more of the FedEx's MD-11 than the UPS' B763. So now here I am, back at hoping that I would get more 763s. The winglets really compliment this model. It makes it look more balanced and sturdy.
Lion Air B737-8GP (PK-LKW)
About a year old, this aircraft still looks great. No eyebrows on the cockpit though.
FedEx A310-324 (N808FD)
This one was also a great treat as FedEx usually send A300-600Fs into Penang. Sometimes two of them in a row. The A310 looks a bit stubby at this range :).
China Airlines Cargo B747-409F (B-18720)
Four engines, 18 wheels, and really loud up close. The sound emitted is just incredible.
SilkAir B737-8SA (9V-MGE)
Next is one of the best selling short-haul models, the B737. This is one of the latest (at time of writing) B738 of SilkAir. Silkair colours are simple and look nice regardless on whether it is on the Airbus models or the Boeing models.
Firefly ATR72-500 (9M-FYJ)
And to end it, here's an ATR, approaching slowly but surely to Runway 04.
This was one of the best sessions that I've had since the time I spotted the UPS 757 and the DHL 727. Truly enjoyed it and looking forward to even more sessions like this. Also one of those rare times that I can set a shutter speed of more than 1/800th of a second.

That is all for this session. Hoping that the next one will be equally great!!
