Old spot

This is gonna be a long one.. Visited an old location where I've been to watch planes take off. If you are wondering how long ago it was since I was there, it was the time where Singapore Airlines still operate 777s from Penang to Singapore. It was easier then to see the aircrafts go by as the fence was much lower. Now, there is an additional layer of higher fences after the old ones PLUS TREES and LEAVES...... Anyway, here are some of the shots, the better ones among the tonnes of photos taken.

The first one here is a far shot of Sriwijaya Air 737-400 (PK-CKD) in old colours. Note the double layered fencing
 Sriwijaya 734 getting ready for takeoff

A shot of  SilkAir's A320 (9V-SLM)
This shot was taken with the camera way above my head, and hence the clipping of the tail section.
It is no longer easy to get great shots or even find an opening to view the runway.

One of the better shots during this duration. DHL's A300-600F (B-LDE) This aircraft was taxiing to the cargo terminal.

 Well this one caught my eye. It was a Malaysia Airlines Flight, but it was operated by a half painted Firefly scheme (9M-FZB) with no airline markings. I guess it is in the process of being painted to the new MAS livery as Firefly has terminated all its jet fleet and is now concentrating on propliners.

Another not so great shot from my view point. But hey, I'm happy with it. Speed brakes - checked, reverse thrusters - checked, airline visible - checked. Tiger Airways A320 (9V-TAM)

That's all for now. Hope you've enjoyed this post. Do drop comments.
