Remarks:FINNAIR 021 seconds before touchdown on Runway 10 at New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport. This was a nice change of equipment from Finnair to bring the Boeing 757 with Winglets. However, the drama unfolded later in the day while she was preparing for her flight back home. The crew realized that her brakes had jammed so badly to the extent that the aircraft could not be moved from the gates. They declared the aircraft tech and had to bring in spare parts to replace the jammed brakes on the aircraft the next day. Unfortunately, for us spotters who were in the airport for 3 days, the aircraft which flew in the spare parts the next day was OH-LQD, the Unikko liveried Airbus A340-313E. We could not catch the special liveried bird on Indian soil, and that goes down as a miss. I hope some Delhi spotters get the chance of seeing the special livery aircraft again, soon... This shot is, again, dedicated to the Apron Controller who drove me to the M1 holding point (the vantage point) from where I could get these shots!

Remarks: OZ 768 pushed back for engine start and departure to Seoul. My first time shooting this rather exotic airline! Asiana was rated the world's second best airline and one of only six 5-star airlines by Skytrax for 2012. Many thanks to Michael Brazier for his editing help.

Remarks: Are we in Brussels? No we aren't. We are at Delhi Airport and this is the lineup of Jet Airways A332s parked at the remote bays during the day before their next flights to the other half of the world.
Remarks: [1200 px] This B77F seems to say "I am the Bad Boy of DEL" as it goes past us on its way to the threshold of runway 28!
Named "Sydney", I dedicate this shot to my friends Suraj & Rutvij who love the B777s & the GE-90s & thanks to Sriram Hariharan for lending his 75-300 lens!
