Did JAL stopped NRT-YYZ already or do they fly to YYZ from another city? Back in 2014 I've got few JAL 777-200s at YYZ while on spotting trip. I thought they were regular there. Most likely a charter. Was it around September/October? I was there October 5th and October 6th. Both days got JAL 777-20...Jump to post

I can't even see line number of the Boeing planes anymore... But that doesn't mean that it's not there. It's true that the database needs updating and that the search values need to be improved, but I can still find the whole history of an aircraft with just a few clicks. Then why don't you show it...Jump to post

Double Eagle are crooks. They've killed their local competition. Not only from TUS airport but from the neighboring air strips too.
Since they did that to the competition, they are charging 2-3 times the regular price. I would never use those crooks and I wouldn't recommend them.
The problem is with 'rebranding' of the site. Few years ago, when you typed registration of the aircraft on google, you would get top 3 results as top matches. Now, a.net doesn't even appears on the first page. How many people go to page 2 on google.com? I used to use exclusively a.net to search for...Jump to post

LAS is one of the easiest airports to spot at in USA. I wouldn't go quite that far.

observation deck? I recommand Hong Kong. One of the busiest airports in Aisa. But you'd better take a 400mm lens (in full frame) at least.

Hi All, I'm running out of ideas on where to go for my spotting vacations. Preferably I would go to some place with observation deck or to location where you can shoot from the hotel.

When you are freeing up a 767 by flying to a new airport very close to an airport where 767 has been operating to (IAD and BWI) then that is something. 767 flew daily to IAD as FI645 in S17.

As for offering connections from South American countries to Asia. They cannot. Non of the South American countries would allow them to sell a ticket such as GIG-HNL-HND where the passenger is flying just to HND from GIG. They also can't sell it that way if they are staying a few days in HNL. However if they buy a ticket GIG-HNL and after staying a week or to decide to fly Hawaiian to HND. on a separate ticket they can do so. But expect to have to buy 2 separate tickets to get back tho GIG as well.
If I were in the market for a 100-400mm lens this is probably the one I'd get. It is supposed to be quite sharp and the price is right. And even though it is not the fastest lens ever it should be fine for most aircraft spotting (daylight, bright conditions).
Past few days I've been looking for a lens between 300mm and 500mm (have that covered). I need something to travel with. It needs to be at 400mm and not as bulky as Nikon 80-400mm. I came across Sigma 100-400mm for a decent price and now I'm considering it. I can't go to customer around ME with Sigm...Jump to post
