Flight CX 270 leaving for HKG
"Spirit of Reenstar" (apparently named in memory of former crew member Irene Watkin)
"Eendracht" touching down on runway 18R, on an incredibly warm and sunny autumn afternoon...
The auxillary tower next to rwy 18R/36L, and the light trails of an a/c passing in front of it (8 sec exposure).
Something isn't right... these SPs are too stubby!
Sunset touch-down on rwy 18R [Fuji S5500]
Shuttling loads of tourists between Holland and Turkey, which has become an extremely popular holiday destination [Fuji S5500 @ 370 mm eq.]
Sporting distinctive gold markings, in what could be considered an early form of "bling"... [Fuji S5500]
Touching the runway for the second time, in strong crosswind... Must have been a bumpy ride. [Fuji S5500 @ 180 mm eq.]
Glowing red in the light of the setting sun... [Fuji S5500 @ 220 mm, 1/90 sec]
At the start of what turned out to be a huge cloud of smoke...
