[Theme] aircrafts and airlines
« on: September 01, 2021, 22:33:39 »
Hi all,

I would love to see a collection of aircrafts and airlines here. I am no aerospace expert so I cannot provide much of information, but I will have some airplanes to share.

In the photo, Air Portugal. I am not sure about the airplane model.

Thanks,
Zang

The oldies are the coolest :D Thank you for sharing!

BTW. There is an airshow in downtown Toronto today, but I am probably not going there. I hate the downtown traffic here :(

I hope some Torontonian folks here will get a chance to capture some cool pictures of the show.

We have a restored one that does lunch and sunset flights over Melbourne most weekends. I'd like to take a flight on it but the idea of being served airline food somewhat puts me off ;D ;D

Here's one from your neck of the woods...

Looks like Airbus A330-900neo (see https://www.flytap.com/en-cz/on-board/discover-the-fleet)

That was an excellent catch! It's definitely A330. Thanks Roland!

Nice theme and nice shots!

This is probably the only one I have that is worth posting. From a search and rescue operation over a lake about 100 mtrs. outside my windows. Luckily the person was found elsewhere alive.
