N219BA This movie set from War of the Worlds (2005) used to be JA8147 with ANA, and now is in Universal Studios in Hollywood, California. It forms part of the Studio Tour attraction, and it is very realistic. Pictured here is the front central section of the aircraft (mehr von N219BA)
VH-OQA On 4th November 2010, the 1st QANTAS A380 "Nancy Bird Walton" as QF32 had an uncontained engine failure in 1 of its RR Trent 900 engines over Indonesia. It limped back to Singapore, landing safely with significant damage. Repaired and put back into service after 500 days, it is seen here departing SYD as QF1, and was one of the last photos of my superb weekend at SYD, and probably my favourite photo! Stunning angles at SYD and thanks to Paul McCarthy for his friendship and help! (mehr von VH-OQA)
JA789A As far as I know, ANA is the only airline to configure their economy class with a flexible 2-4-3 layout. Found on their premium-heavy 4-class "Inspiration of Japan" B777-300ERs, these fixed-back economy class seats come with a generous 34" seat pitch (mehr von JA789A)
An overview of Kai Tak taken by my late Father, probably in the late 1940s. Kai Tak looked a lot different than it does today, as does Kowloon. Seems like the IGS was not such a challenge for pilots in those days!
