Excuse me....

These night shots have been enhanced a little or else they'd just be black, depending on which monitor I use to look at them they are at different shades of brightness.

Hopefully these aren't too dark, that is some Orbx North America LC scenery out of the window.

OK, here's a picture of a United 777 and the moon.

A few Air Canada Beech 1900's parked up for the night somewhere cold and remote.

At this point I went to bed, I mean for my break. On returning from a not very restful slumber (we had a teething baby at the time) we were approaching Ireland and flew over London. I spent way too long watching all the different AI traffic flying around the South of England and took so many photo's it warranted it's own thread here.

As we pass over continental Europe we see a China Airline Cargo jumbo.

A few hours later and things are getting decidedly sandy down there, must be nearly home.

Local carriers now abound (I think that's me in the background). Qatar, of course, is one of the remaining A346 operators, I wonder how I can get myself to one of the QTR A346 destinations?

Kuwait (I think) out of my window...

I think I'll try and pick up a QTR A346 in Bangkok and bring it back to Doha as the QTR837. So now, how to get to VTBS?

Well in the descent now, passing the city of Abu Dhabi heading downwind for the airport.

Passing the airfield with it's lovely brand new terminal... that's not open yet.

They turn us in a little before I was expecting (I was running out of time) so speedbrakes out as we turn onto base.

Taxiing in it looks decidedly hazy.

Parked up and unloading.

Sorry, still no A340s but I have a plan now... I'll see what I can do for next time.
