hey guys,

i met Nitin today since he is in Bombay and we went spotting! we were at a friends terrace in Vakola... when we reached, rwy 14 was in use for take off and landing but soon after it was switched to rwy 27. here is the list of take-offs and landings :

RWY 14:

take-offs:
Jet Airways 737s and A343

RWY 27:

take-offs:

the BA 747 used the whole runway for takeoff!! the Fedex MD-11 pushed back for departure but reaching half way it taxied and parked again but after about an hour it pushed back again for departure!! as we were about to leave we saw the AI 767 emerge from the terminal on the otherside (not visible from where we were standing!) and it was amazing!!!! we finally got pics of the AI 767!! and it had a british reg. too... !!! after standing around for about 10 mins and waiting for a few departures and landings she gracefully lifted off!! what a sight!!! not worth misssing!!! on the whole it was a amazinggg way to spend a lazy sunday!!!

Had a great timeee!!!!

pics will be uploaded soon!

cheers!!!

not behind the hanger but yeah close by...


AKLDELNonstop,
the pic is amazin i know, it my favorite pic too! but being there was amazinnggg watching her rotate with those wonderfull and very powerfull RR engines!!! she did rotate very late!! (we thought she would gone off the runway) you can tell from the pic how last minute the rotation was... the VS still did rotate much earlier but again vertical speed was low because it was a A340-300....

GREAT PICS Esp the BRIT SHIPS taking off so late!!!

Combination of PAX, CARGO and ,I suspect, warm temperatures, since this is a daytime departure on a 10 hr route.

Just my 2C

Excellent shots Nitin - was a pleasure to see! I wish there was a little less pollution in Indian metros, since most shots from BOM/DEL have some grey in the background Sad

The new Indian livery is pretty good. Is it their new 320 with IFE or is it one of their older a/c?

Cheers

The Delta Connection picture is nice.

Something that is emerging and creating a new frontier for itself.

The A320s have just been painted... no IFE's nothing... I guess only EYL has IFEs and mostly operates on DEL-SIN leg these days ... basically based in DEL
