Hi Viv!!
this pic was snapped 2018-06-21, the longest day of the year with a very early sunrise!!
SA is coming every day early morning. It is difficult to take a good pic with a Fading sunlight. Thats why i;m Standing at the longest day in Frankfurt to tak the pic!!.
The other side, SA is leaving Frankfur every day in the evening. In August it is not possible to get a pic with sunlight, only in June and July with high sun in the evening.
Nightshots are also not possive because the darkness at 8-9 o clock pm is not strong enough!
If you want to take a nightshot with this light you get only a very blue pic!!
It is the twilight Zone where normal- and night pics aremostly not possible!!

greetings from a sunny Frankfurt today.
Uwe

P.S.
now will taking my cam to go to Frankfurt Airport!!

Incredible to think that this company produces a good range of scooters, or is Piaggio Aerospace a totally different company?

Great photo of a great aircraft. Sadly this great Russian aircraft that was produced in Uzbekistan is also observed less since the breakup of the Soviet Union. (Like the Ukrainian produced Antonov An-124.) I was fortunate to observe one landing in South Africa last year.

I still think of this as a beautiful aircraft. Thanks Laurence.

Can't help thinking of the television series called Ice Pilots with Buffalo Airways, or alternatively called Ice Pilots NWT elsewhere.

Having watched a few seasons of the show and seen the incidents that occurred, I was surprised to read this article on this link: https://tinyurl.com/ybuknf7y about the airline.

(Not sure about the legality of posting a link in the comments. My apologies if it is not permitted, I didn't think it was worthy of a 'squawk')

One of these things has been chopped and doubles as a diner at a theme park and duty free area on the Austro_Hungarian border along with one of it’s engines- bit of a travesty really- but it is startling to say the least !

The number of wheels on this kite is incredible? Thanks Alexander for the photo.

Nice 'catch' Leon :~)

The mention of Waterkloof brings back some good memories from an era long gone by. Thanks for posting the photo Leon.

On a separate note, it's sad to hear the situation that SAA finds itself in today. I left SAA, and RSA, in mid to late '80's after my apprenticeship and qualifying as a Radiotrician working in the then 'Mux' crew and out of the Short Range Hanger with other Radio crews. You can take the man out of Kempton, but I guess you can never take Kempton out of the man? LOL :~)

Think you'll find Harry Ellett, the plane is in Ukrainian colors and is in fact currently being showcased around the world for sale as Ukraine offers to build the plane... not so much Russia, but Ukraine

@Leon Kay - Hi Leon, which was your local RSA airport? I grew up in a town called Edenvale, very close to Kempton Park and the then JSA.

Good Morning, Uwe.
I nice pic, great contrast with the stormy sky !!
I guess this photo is not very new, I think SXW has not been to Frankfurt for a few months now, yes?

Written on 17/08/2018 by Viv Pike

It's interesting how many items are pre flight checkable via the quick access hatches in the main landing gear fairing...nice shot!

This shot occupies the bliss somewhere in the ether between earth and heaven. Anyone could pretty much live out the rest of their lives in here and be content.

A sleek sight in blue and white! NICE!

If you fly into a phone booth does it turn back into Clark Kent? - Well cared-for ship!

This is kind of what I imagine my mower looks like when mulching piles of leaves.

Cute but methinks 'Charlie' could use some more colorful pants and maybe a striped coat to match!

Written on 16/08/2018 by William Camp

Very impressive shot with loads of interesting elements.

I'm drooling - a wonderful plane with incredible capacity - just not comfortable burning dinos in multiples of three for a mere 10-20 knots over a high performance single.

Written on 16/08/2018 by William Camp

Always fun to see former good friends - same holds true for aircraft.
