Short random spotting session at Oslo airport-ENGM

Went for a short random spotting session on my way home from work today. Did not expect much activity, but Tuesdays are cargo day so hoped to catch some heavies.
Not the best light, but anyway here are some shots.
Rwy in use was 01L

Canon EOS 700d
Canon 55-250

Cessna 172S Skyhawk. After departure they had to come back and land because the pilot had not filed a flightplan. From this airport you can not depart without filing a valid FPL even if you plan to fly VFR. After around 15 mins they departed again.

Really, really cool pictures! The Scandinavian and Qatar ones must be my favourites.

Also: What?? Why did they even manage to depart without a FPL? So many questions.

Thanks for sharing these cool pictures!

Have no idea, probably a misunderstanding between ATC and pilot 🤷🏻‍♂️
He probably got a violation

Great photos, and the 777 has beautiful wing flex! I’m so excited for the 77W to get it.

Awesome seeing the little guys in there! That’s always my favorite part, especially when they mix with the heavys. To this day one of my favorite spotting memories was when we had a Cessna 208 for Southern Airways Express followed almost immediately by 777F for Qatar, which was followed by another C208 (they have a hub here with ~20 daily flights, so back to backs are not uncommon) which was followed by a British Airways Dreamliner, followed by a third C208. It was just so cool to see them fart in there. Pretty sure the controller actually told the 777 “caution wake turbulence C208 landing in front of you”


Totally unrelated comment, I see you used the 55-250 and I was wondering what your thoughts were on it, I’m so close to buying one, not sure what I’m waiting for just haven’t pulled the trigger yet, is it good in your experience?

The little guys are cool!

55-250 has worked ok for me, but not the best if it’s overcast/poor light. It needs sunny bright days.
Another better option is a 70-200 f 2.8 of course with IS/OS (Stablilizer)
