Also guys, what do you think about this fighter jet?

-snip-

The Harrier?

 

Absolute gas guzzler thanks to the VTOL layout, but a fairly successful fighter-bomber aircraft, even though the AV-8A/B variants had a reputation for being quite dangerous to their pilots.

 

It must be absolutely stunning to see them at airshows. Alongside its party trick, it's quite a good looking aircraft too.

Very nice pictures Tiger, Amazes how close you were able to get you couldn't get within 1,000 yards of the fence at airports here in the U.S

Really? I haven't been to an international airport for a while so I don't know the Australian rules regarding safe distances from the fence.

 

At regional airports however, I've seen plenty of people standing right up near the fence, even at airshows where jets like Sabres, L-39s and Hornets are on the flight line. It must've gotten a bit warmer when the F-18s went full afterburner for takeoff!

Oh wow!! I've never ever seen the two Goodyear dirigibles hanging out together. What a strange sight!

...And then there's Rio de Janeiro.

 

Looks like a cool plane-spotting place. It's not an international airport, but still.

Missed out on getting to see my first A346 today, Had I had the bus fare and a good amount of time notice, I could have made it the estimated 2-3 hours to get to the airport.

 

So this week my hometown had 2 rare heavy metal from Virgin Atlantic, Not saying that they are rare in the world, but to Cleveland, anything international and heavy is rare there. The visitors were a 787 and an A346 in town to take the local NFL team to London.

First time in an A350 today. I'd like to say nice things about it but it's not really anything special from a PAX pov. I'd say the 787 is more obvious with the cabin upgrades. I do like the new shape of the cockpit windows though, makes the A350 look like a big raccoon. My experience was also marred by the fact that my second leg was delayed by about 5 hours and I missed all the ground connections at my destination as we landed around midnight and everything had stopped. Ended up having to take a 170km Uber. The airline can expect a strongly worded email from me in the coming days.

So, Boeing announced their plans to buy Embraer for $3.7 Billion, in retaliation to Airbus buying over half of Bombardier. However, the Brazilian government has control over most of Embraer that still makes planes for the Brazilian Airforce, so now we can only wait to see if they will reach an agreement, one of them will back down or the government will step in.

Some recent spottings between DFW and DAL. Two of the biggest airlines in the world are headquartered here, American and Southwest, so each of their main hubs are here; American at DFW and Southwest at DAL. So we get to see a fair amount of special liveries from each.

UPS usually doesn't send 747s down here, so it was a special treat.

Airbus delivers the first A350 XWB 900 to Spanish Company Iberia

The plane came directly from the delivery center of the Airbus factory in Toulouse (France), where an act of delivery was broadcast live in the morning on the Facebook of the company Iberia. The aircraft is undoubtedly the most modern and efficient model built by the company Airbus and after being used in training flights of the crews on the Madrid route London will be used on trans-oceanic flights Madrid New York and will replace the old Airbus A340 with 4 engines

Then on Sunday I had a chance to fly in a Vietnam UH-1 Huey

MY friend and I are heavy and they stuck us in the door gunner seat, during some banking turns where I could look straight down below the chopper, all that was keeping me in was a lap belt.
