Remarks: Wing view of the Air India hangars at Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. This is no ordinary picture as when you view it in full size, you actually realize the aircrafts at the hangars are the Dream)Liners. Picture taken during the days of the Boeing 787 grounding.
Trivia: Can someone give me the exact count of aircrafts in this picture?
Remarks: As the day belongs to the A350 XWB for her first flight, this is also a day for me to remember. My 900th picture on Jetphotos.net database, and in 1600px. 3 heavies with 12 massive engines parked at the gates at DEL Airport. Not something that I earned for, but I will take this as it has two of my favorite birds. From Left to Right: Lufthansa Boeing 748i, a RARE Qatari Airbus A340-600, and the Queen of the Skies British Airways Boeing 747-400. This shot is specially dedicated to all my fellow API Members for their continued support, and to everyone who has been appreciating my pictures.
Remarks:JAPAN AIR 749 taxiing to Terminal 3 at IGI Airport, Delhi after arriving from Tokyo Narita Airport, Japan. This service used to be operated by the 787 Dream)Liner before the grounding. This is officially my last shot at the Delhi Airside Spotting session in March 2013.
Remarks: The F-16 Fighting Falcon taxiing to the runway to perform the flying display at Aero India 2013 at Yelahanka Airforce Base. This aircraft belongs to the 14th Flight Squadron of the US Airforce called the "Samurais" and is assigned to the 35th Fighter Wing based at Misawa Air Base, Japan.
Remarks: Air India's double bogeyed Airbus 320 taxiing on CW2 to the Active runway. This airframe was received by Indian Airlines on 14-09-1989, and was later transferred to Air India (after the merger) on 24-08-2007. The double bogey A320 order was done by the Rajiv Gandhi Govt. in the late 80's considering the poor runway conditions of majority of the Indian airports, and the double bogie was customized for IC (Indian Airlines).
