Birdwatch: Photo # 7 (Fedex)

Time to revive the Birdwatch series. I know I’ve been erratic with this one but I’ll try my best to be putting out some more plane spotting pictures regularly now. I caught this Fedex MD-11F just as it got off the active runway on BOM last week, and you can see as I tried to get a shot, a crow competed to be in the same frame as well. Reminds me of ‘As the crow flies’ by Jeffrey Archer. Airline: FedEx Location: Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport (BOM) Airframe: McDonnell Douglas MD-11(F) If you want to share a picture of a plane, an airport, or anything aviation related, please send it across to aj@livefromalounge.comwith the details and I’ll put it up…

Birdwatch: Photo # 5 (SQ Cargo)

Reader Indranil sends in this picture of the SQ Mega Ark. He says that SQ does not go for any livery changes after one of its promotional livery plane crashed in Taiwan. Till date the only difference is the SQ freighters (747-s which are called Mega Arks). Here is one of them, shot from the East Coast Park, Singapore, on its approach to Singapore Changi Airport. Thank you Indranil!

Birdwatch: Photo # 4 (Jet Airways in Nokia Lumia colors)

Nokia, the erstwhile king of mobile phones is now trying to restablish itself in the market. And it thinks painting a plane in all the colors is one good move. So, as a part of their advertising strategy for the Nokia Lumia 800 which recently launched, they painted this Jet Airways plane. Now, I want to get on this plane, only if someone told me what route it is flying. Airline: Jet Airways Location: Unknown Airframe: Boeing 737-800 If you want to share a picture of a plane, an airport, or anything aviation related, please send it across to aj@livefromalounge.com with the details and I’ll put it up here. Thank you! (Hat Tip to ZOMG for this one!)

Birdwatch: Photo # 2 (Air Macau)

While all of you are trying to help me figure out which trip report comes up next for all of you, here is a picture of one of the most interesting liveries I’ve ever seen.  This is at the Beijing Capital Airport, a yellow colored Air Macau aircraft, leased back to parent Air China sitting on the tarmac ready to go (somewhere). It turned out this very interesting plane was my flight to HKG. 😛 Airline: Air Macau (leased to Air China) Location: Beijing Capital Airport Airframe: Airbus 321 If you want to share a picture of a plane, an airport, or anything aviation related, please send it across to aj@livefromalounge.com with the details and I’ll put it up here.…
