Aircraft folks, I haven’t forgotten about you!
There’s been trains, and beaches, and water, and scenic shots, and even an aircraft boneyard – but no “live” aircraft for a while.
I took a bit of a break from what I’ve been working on for the site and finished cropping and cleaning of new images from HNL and YVR. These images were taken with either the D7100 and 18-270 or with my Icon during taxi and takeoff.
This batch includes a couple of new airlines and schemes.
I’ve also completed the rest of Hawaiian Airlines’ fleet – the A330 and B767 have been added to round things out. The only other type of aircraft they fly is the B717.
The snow-covered mountains in the background at YVR (Vancouver International Airport, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) add something to aircraft photography. I need to build in a little more time when I am there next if Mrs. Frog will let me. HNL (Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii) is also quite an interesting place, with many Asian airlines and aircraft not readily seen in the US mainland – it’s just not all that easy to shoot there.
There’s more aircraft to add from these two airports, and they’ll get processed and added at some point in time – or when I need a diversion – whichever comes first!. More new types of aircraft, and more new airlines. There’s even a Boeing 727 freighter in the bunch – I didn’t know that there were still 727s in the air! There are probably some airlines you’ve never heard of in the next batch, and since this is a “fun” gallery, there may be some less than technically perfect images in there for the sake of sharing a plane type or an obscure airline.
Mentally, it was a good diversion for me to take – and I hope y’all enjoy a little diversion courtesy of the world’s airlines.
