Hey everyone, hope your day has been going great so far! Today I dropped by Changi Beach again to take arrival shots, and had slightly better luck today :D
Enjoy, and the EXIF+aircraft data is posted below the image.
9M-FYF, Firefly ATR 72-500 MSN 860| 1/1000s f/8 ISO100 18-135@135mm
This Firefly ATR has a great registration dosen’t it?
HS-LTR, Lion Air Boeing 737-9GP(ER) MSN 39837| 1/400s f/10 ISO 100 18-135@85mm
This shot was out of position as I was setting up (read: enjoying the wind) and didn’t realise that this guy was on final.
PK-GFF, Garuda Indonesia Boeing 737-8U3 MSN 36436| 1/500s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@135mm
Same goes for this guy, didn’t think the walk to a better position was worth it for a 737NG shot! I did move after him though, remaining shots will be better.
9V-SRQ, Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-212(ER) MSN 33371| 1/500s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@135mm
Cropped down to 5MP as he was too far to zoom, who even lands on the other runway?
9V-STT, Singapore Airlines Airbus A330-343X MSN 1382| 1/640s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@135mm
Okay, so him and the 77E landed on the other runway. Cropped again and Googled the registration as I couldn’t read it. Did you know 9V-STT was also on a A310-300 now serving with FedEx as N814FD?
PK-LPI, Lion Air Boeing 737-9GP(ER) MSN 38299| 1/640s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@135mm
Another Lion 739ER, this one being leased instead of bought, which explains the different registration prefix.
9V-SLG, Silkair Airbus A320-232 MSN 2252| 1/640s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@135mm
First taking to the skies on the 1st of July 2004, F-WWBB was delivered to Silkair on the 30th of August 2004.
9V-MGP, Silkair Boeing 737-8SA MSN 44232| 1/640s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@64mm
This 738 is basically brand new by plane standards! Only delivered on the 30th of May 2016, it was one of the cleanest planes there.
9V-SFM, Singapore Airlines Cargo Boeing 747-412F MSN 32898| 1/640s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@50mm
There’s no point in having 8fps if you don’t use it right?
1/640s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@55mm
1/640s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@100mm
9M-AQS, AirAsia Airbus A320-216 MSN 5431| 1/640s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@75mm
This A320 only flew in Dec 2012 for the first time, but the dirt makes it look twice the age.
9V-SWK, Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-312(ER) MSN 34576| 1/640s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@120mm
SQ1 is the second leg of the SFO-HKG-SIN route, operated by a 77W most of the time.
9M-LNC, Malindo Air Boeing 737-8GP MSN 38314| 1/640s f/9 ISO 100 18-135@100mm
How many different airlines does Lion Air actually have?!?!
VN-A362, Vietnam Airlines Airbus A321-231 MSN 3966| 1/500s f/10 ISO 100 18-135@120mm
Vietnam Airlines has a special place in my heart (or rather my back) for teaching me that there are narrowbody flights longer than 5 hours. Ouch.
(The worst flight I have ever been on was a SIA 333 where my seat recliner was broken, leaving me with a perfectly upright seat for 8 hours. If this isn’t already banned by the Geneva Convention as an obtuse form of torture, it should be.)
B-HNP, Cathay Pacific Boeing 777-367 MSN 34243| 1/800s f/8 ISO 100 18-135@92mm
My first sighting of the new Cathay livery on an older plane!
HS-THF, Thai Airways Airbus A350-941 MSN 123| 1/640s f/8 ISO 100 18-135@113mm
Was waiting especially for this- my first A350 close-up!
9V-TAN, Scoot/Tigerair Airbus A320-232 MSN 4210| 1/640s f/8 ISO 100 18-135@92mm
Identity Crisis time! It seems they had time to stick the Scoot stickers onto the plane but not to paint it in Scoot colours…
B-18906, China Airlines Airbus A350-941 MSN 92| 1/640s f8 ISO 100 18-135@106mm
After being overjoyed at the Thai A350, this comes soaring over the threshold. A350s can’t be that common…
B-LRB, Cathay Pacific Airbus A350-941 MSN 32| 1/500s f/8 ISO 100 18-135@135mm
…unless you happen to catch one through the trees! I had already left but my camera was still on, so when it poked through the trees I tried to catch the shot. I would have had a better shot if I had left it in Cont High, maybe the trees wouldn’t have been blocking it in the next frame!
Thanks for dropping by, have a great week ahead!
P.S. PoTP is coming back!
