@Tsumia making that checkerboard turn.

Yours truly doing the checkerboard turn. The MD11 sure is a beauty.

TOUCHDOWN! Reverses green.

Anyway, what do you think? Any feedback on what to improve here is highly appreciated.

I tried going for a classic theme while editing this flight. The MD-11, 742 and Kai Tak are some of the legends of modern aviation


Great pictures :)

Oh hey there, also seen that JAL B742 trio, but at Narita.


Thanks guys. @Alexander_Nikitin nice spot ;)

Tsumia forgot to request pushback that time πŸ˜‚
I’m not mad at him though, he said sorry and requested it after I guarded him. I guess Japan airlines means more than just the livery (or just that he is polite, probably this actually)


Wow! Very impressive pictures! Not used to this quality on the IFC :)

I’ve seen an influx in Kai Tak topics, I like it! Great photos!

I did think I was about to get ghosted :P

Thanks for not doing that though :^)
