Last spotting in 2019 @ENGM

Yesterday morning I went to Oslo airport for some sunrise shots. The east side of the airport is not accessible with car so had to walk a couple of miles through forest and along an old WW2 airstrip to get to the right place. Spotted both moose and deer along my route 🙂

After a couple of hours here I went to the west side. As you can see in the photos it was a nice day!

Some highlights

  • Brand new Turkish A321-271NX Delivered Dec. 28
  • Thomas Cook A330 operated by Sunclass.
  • Qatar 777-FDZ
  • Citation Latitude Air ambulance

Yeah I know! 😅 Not sure what’s up with all the white norwegian aircrafts. Stripped for paint before sale? Repainting?
Thanks!

Probably rather short-term leases (both Wet lease (e.g. SmartLynx) and probably dry leave (e.g. the B737).

Doesn’t make the best outside impression though…

Beautiful Shots. Love the contrast with the Smartlynx A320-214 and the orange trees in the background ✨

Also it’s great to see our neighbors to the West got snow over New Years. It’s pretty dry over here… 😐

Thanks man!

We’ve got snow but it’s actually not much compared to how much it use to be this time of year. Expecting more this month.

The reason they’ve leased aircraft is the problems with the B737 MAX and also engine problems on the Dreamliner.

I think I was on the exact same location when I spotted the last SAS B736 landing. Freezing cold and dark.

Yeah, I know. Spotted four 737 Max parked outside Norwegian maintenance hangar.
But a number of 737-800 owned by Norwegian are all white.

Cool. This place is not used by many spotters, but there is a popular spotting location right across the runway from where I was.

Theyre supposed to be sold, at least according to Planespotters.net, but they haven’t been sold yet due to the MAX problems, so they are flying unpainted all around, in addition to LN-NGD there is LN-NGE, which is also all white, most Norwegian aircraft registered LN-NG* are sold

That makes sense. Thanks for the info Jens!

It also seems like Norwegian started a new subsidiary in Sweden, and that’s why they have lots of Swedish registered planes, more than that I don’t know

They had earlier Norwegian registrations
