Wow, these are some simply stunning images overall!


Beautiful Cathay A350, definitely my favorite by far !


I love the Cathay A350 and Singapore 77W shots! Looks awesome <3

I wonder why SIA doesn’t use their 388 to AKL anymore as they have alot of spare A388s atm. Anyway, May I know what lens and camera did you use?


i think it was because they retired some of the older a380

9V-SKA hasn’t been retired yet. Although lately I noticed that many SIA 388s got grounded at SIN

Those pictures were insane!

By the look of things your ISO settings is too high causing the noise that is very noticeable on some of the shots- On a day like this you only need to use ISO 100, or possibly lower than that if your camera can. Alter the shutter speed and aperture to get a nice lighting condition.

What camera do you use?


Some great shots once again featuring great aircraft.

I am pretty sure someone shared an article here on the forum regarding SIA and their leased A380’s under which the lease may not be renewed. If I find the article I will PM you. On another note, these shots are amazing. My favorite was definitely the one with a different type of bird πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

Wow. Those are really good. You should upload them to Jetphotos or something.
Did you get to see any LATAM 789?
My favourite shot is the Fiji and ATR one.
