Remarks: [1400 px] DEL gets huge amount of Cargo Traffic & I am so disappointed with my home airport at BOM! Over the 2 days I spent at DEL, this was 1 of the numerous, Kalittas, Eva Air Cargos, Fedexes, KLM Cargos, Cathays & more.... that we managed to see!
Felt amazing to be surrounded by these huge birds! Interestingly as observed by my friend Yatrik, the registration of this bird is a "744" too!
Remarks: [1400 px] How I wish my teacher had taught me 'TEE' for Thai Airways with a picture of the spectacular tail as reference! I love the colors on these TG birds! Operating TG 324 to Bangkok, this massive looking A330-300 is off on a long take off roll on runway 28 at DEL.
TG operates twice daily to DEL & have seen them send B772s, B773s & these A333 to DEL.
Remarks: [1600px] Air India had a tradition to name all its widebody aircrafts, however since the inception of the dreamliners this tradition has been discontinued, Its 777 fleet has been named after the Indian States. This particular aircraft is named after the North Eastern state of Nagaland.
Remarks: The two Italian marines accused of killing two Indian fisherman off the coast of Kerala, were finally returned to India. They have been at the centre of the diplomatic showdown between the two countries, when Italy refused to let them return, dishonouring an personal undertaking given by Italy's ambassador to India, to the Supreme Court of India.
The marines were flown back in MM62227 a Boeing KC-767A tanker-transporter of the Aeronautica Militare Italiana. This aircraft is based at Pratica di Mare Air Base, the largest base of the Italian Air Force, located southwest of Rome.
