Chris... you certainly had a cat bird's seat to viewing the Caravelle!!! Your experienced and informed comments are noteworthy to say the least. I've read the Caravelle's unique passenger window design resulted in a smaller and lighter window that offered the same downward visibility as conventional designs. This too - the Caravelle was the first medium size airliner with jet engines mounted aft on the fuselage!

Been there and it is amazing. While in a landing plane and looking out the window and seeing the water getting so close, I'm wondering when I'll see some runway. Similar feeling to landing on an aircraft carrier although on a carrier you don't as close to the water as in St Maarten.

Thanks Mark! For this tour, I switched between my Canon EOS Rebel SL1 and my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. For this certain shot, I used the SL1 and my Canon EF 200-400mm f/4 lens. For a couple of other shots, I used A Canon EF 75-300mm lens f/4-5.6.

Great shots Isaac! What camera/lens combo were you using?

Thanks Gary and Cliff, exactly so in regard to owing much to the DH Comet in regard to both the cockpit design and the nose shape. Apart from the distinctive shape of the passenger windows, it has always impressed me why the long distance between the main forward passenger entry door and the cockpit? (No flight engineer station aft of the pilots, unlike the Comet). More cabin length than would be ample for a forward galley plus a forward toilet...I still recall watching the later Caravelles departing out of SYD for Noumea (less than a three hour sector)in the mid 1980's, while doing preflight walkarounds on the F27, just 500yards away. Impressive!

I would have instantly lost my job in Ansett if I had even been the support pilot, let alone the "pilot flying" when this shot was taken. But then again, a Clue is that this A380 is still on the French register, prior to her delivery to F-WWSK.

It's NOT fantastic. All it is is a water drop, but the photo doesn't show any fire that I can see. Not enough info in the picture. It's a simple water drop picture, no more. Nothing fantastic about it. Let's go easy on the superlatives around here, shall we?!

What is a Yankee plane doing wearing the Canadian RCAF livery?!

Written on 04/25/2017 by trennor turcotte

Kind of strange to say the least. How far was the Rwy from that spot?

That's not a C-17, it's a C-130 type.

Killer shot John

Great shot! I'm amazed you got it without the power lines in the shot; I wasn't able to find the magic angle.

Gary... you are most welcome... and any compliments regarding your photography is well deserved.

My apology as I must confess that I'm drawing a blank here on which FA member is a fan of trains and locomotives. I would enjoy seeing that photo, however. Perhaps you can e-mail a copy to me when convenient... :-)

By the way, how many FA members remember that the nose and cockpit design of Sud Aviation's SE-210 Caravelle was "borrowed" from de Havilland's Comet jetliner?

@Jose Suro: Thx!

Great photo.... Hope you didn't get too cold taking it.

Written on 04/24/2017 by Alan Brown

Hiya, Cliff. TY for the comment & compli. Yep, these came out well. Hey, Cliff, do you by chance happen to know which FA member it is who is a fan of trains? I don't know anything about trains, but I've got an oldie pic here I took in '65 of a locomotive and I'm told it is a "BALDWIN 260." I recall there is someone who is an FA member who also likes train pics but I don't remember who. Might you know who it is/was?

Gary, that's an outstanding commentary on this photo... of which this is also an amazing image given it was sourced from original Kodak 620 film prints!!!

On 9/11/62, N1014U was involved in an accident while landing at Cleveland's Hopkins Airport after a flight from Chicago. During the landing roll, both front wheels separated from the nose gear and the gear then collapsed. There were no fatalities or injuries to anyone on board the flight; however, N1014U sustained substantial damage. The subsequent investigation determined that incorrect maintenance had led up to the accident. N1014U was repaired and went on to fly for United and then several other agencies before finally being broken up in the 90s.

I think that Telluride CO is situated at slightly above 9,000feet amazingly high home base for a G450 and an SR22!

Thanks for sharing ! I guess I'm being old and sentimental but the 747 and esepically the 400 version is still my favorite . Haven't flown the 800 yet but I'm sure I'll fall in love all over again.
