The Plane ! The Plane !

The messages of hope and support are still being written and officials are still taking care with their words. But almost three weeks after flight MH370 disappeared, leaving just the faintest digital trace, Malaysia is being increasingly forced to confront the dark prospect that it is likely there will be no happy ending. The plane may never be found; there may be no bodies to bury.
However, some relatives of those on board the plane ~ missing now for more than three weeks ~ continue to hope against hope.
Pray for MH370....
Well..let me talk about my hobby"The AirPlane Spotter" of course its nothing to do with disappear of Boeing777-200 belong to MAS. My friends often ask me what pleasure do I get from airplane spotting, the answer is this photograph.


 Did you guys notice something from the airplane wings of the two photos above.
Its Wing tip vortices (yes it is spelled vortices, not vortexes).These vortices can be seen in cool wet weather on aircraft taking off or landing, and are referenced as “wing tornadoes” by many people. What is often not said, is just how these “wing tornadoes” are formed, how they have shaped safety policy and aircraft categorization, as well as some of the hazards they can create.

 Most of the airplane photos in my blog are shoot with semi pro level DSLR ( Olympus E-620) and for plane spotting I normally use Zuiko Lens 70-300mm f 4.5 . Don't worry all the gear I mention here is not a PRO level camera as I'm not a PRO myself...Aviation Photography is my weekend hobby.

Aviation photography is one of the more challenging genres you can shoot as a photographer: fast-moving subjects, bright backgrounds.Aviation photography can be great fun, but if you want to capture exciting pictures of airplanes against interesting backgrounds rather than plain skies you need to shoot them during take-off or landing.Read More here .

Thank You.

Very Inattentive To My Blog of Late.Pray For MH370.

I realize that I have been very inattentive to my blog of late.  So much has been going on - at work - otherwise - but - the planes have not stopped - and - I haven't stopped photographing them.  I need to get more posted. but - in the last week or so - there have been  very interesting as I found a new spotting site.
Here is few photos of plane that I spotted as I have said all we can spotted in KCH/WBGG (Kuching International Airport) are air plane of carrier such as Maindo Air,AirAsia and MAS.



 Of course, this weekend has also seen the tragedy that is Malaysian flight MH370.  As of writing this blog entry, the wreckage has not been found and there is so much speculation on what has happened.  I am not going to speculate - to me, speculation breeds rumors and we don't need those.  Until the wreckage is found and the black boxes located, we will never know what happened.  I will reserve all judgements until those two things have happened.......

In the meantime though, more time spent behind the camera lens......and  lets us Pray For MH370.

Plane Spotting, Again.

This time I'm not too far  to the plane final approach to land at runway 25 in Kuching International Airport.
 This map show my location for plane spotting and this location is just the end of runway near to the approach lighting.
The Kuching Airport approach landing Lights.
 The danger with planespotting is that nowadays you are at risk of being regarded as a potential terrorist. In some countries you could even be arrested on suspicion of spying but in Malaysia plane spotting is probably safer. Just for information,you don't need have a DSLR for plane spotting at this point because once the plane approach for final approaching its look so near to you and compact camera with zoom lens is just nice .
So below is a set of aircraft photograph that I shoot this morning .





The most common aircraft that land in Kuching International Airport (WBGG) is.
AirAsia airbus 320
Malaysia Airline B737-400 and 800 series
Malindo Air B737-900 series.
Next time you wanted to go for plane spotting lust make sure it's a clear day, otherwise don't bother.
