Got a raging tech. boner last weekend.  Saturday afternoon I had the pleasure of seeing a pair of F-15's in what appeared to be a drill of some sort.  They continuously flew in a rectangular pattern over west Houston for at least an hour so.  I decided to kick back and enjoy the repeated flyovers.  The sound alone made my day though they were flying much slower than usual (especially by F-15 standards).  Managed to get some footage but the video was too grainy.  One fine piece of engineering....

Big Bird: Emirates Airbus A380 snapped up close at Manchester Airport (RWY 05 Left).

 

The aircraft weighs almost 600 tons at take off and will fly 3,500 miles to Dubai.

TransAsia Airways of Taiwan is shutting down. It's sad because they ran a fleet of ATR-72s which I really enjoyed flying on (I have a thing for turboprops like the ATR-42/72 and Dash 8s). I guess times are a-changing, and it's Embraer E190/195s for my commute flights from now on...

Just posting from somewhere over the pacific. Got wifi for the duration of my flight to ORD. Never used in-flight wifi on a transpacific flight before! We're living in the future now.

This thread started in memory of the Airbus A340, a plane that always seemed spectacular, this is my contribution ...

I've flown on it's successor, the A350 XWB, a couple of times now (both with Finnair). Without a question, the nicest planes I've ever been on board.

I've not yet had the chance to fly on the A350 yet but I know CI, CX, and SQ all operate them now. I know you can't stop the march of progress but I always felt the A340 was the dragster of the sky, just because it was the only single-deck four-engined aircraft in service (BAe 146 notwithstanding).

I don't have a fleet, just one model Airbus A380 SuperJumbo.
 
This was a gift from friends of mine from Dubai   :)

(yes, I am obsessed with this aircraft ha ha)
