Monday Spotting Part 1

Well this was from a Monday. Not that it is a bad day to spot, it is just that there were not as many heavies as I expected. Nonetheless, one was there, so the spotting commenced:

Dragonair A330-342 (B-HLC)

Dragonair departs at about 8 to Hong Kong. Was a little late, and Thai Airways was on time, so missed the baby Thai. This usual spot for departure shots have been covered with grass and shrubs. No way to stay there for long. Had to try other locations along the runway.

Malindo Air ATR72-600 (9M-LMG)

The fun thing about this new place is that you get to see ATRs and some 320s rotating in front of you (with the exception of China Southern Airlines, which usually use quite a good length of the runway before taking off)

Tigerair A320-232 (9V-TRK)

Lion Air B737-8GP (PK-LOM)

Malindo Air B737-8GP (9M-LNP)

Malindo Air ATR72-600 (9M-LMO)

AirAsia Expedia Livery (9M-AFG)

One thing about this location is that you get to see the rotation of the aircraft. By this point, ATRs would be several 10s of feet off the ground. You also get to see aircraft turning out on the high speed taxiway.

Nepal Airlines B757

Looking up, we sometimes get traffic flying overhead, like for the case above, a Nepal Airlines 757. Sometimes a C130 can be visible too. Here are more takeoff shots.

Indonesia AirAsia A320-216 (PK-AZJ)

AirAsia (9M-AQU)

Firefly ATR72-500 (9M-FYD)

Silkair B737-8SA (9V-MGI)

Malindo (9M-LMO)

Firefly (9M-FYL)

Noticed anything behind the Firefly? Yup, it is Neptune Air (9M-NEF) and a police helicopter parked by the ATC. Thought

Lion Air (PK-LOM)

Malaysia Airlines (9M-MSI)

Sriwijaya Air B737-8Q8 (PK-CME)

To be continued in Part 2....
