I found the Dash 8 shot interesting. The prop blur and lighting look good, just a pity any zooming in doesn’t really work. Pity also that there are not more opportunities to experiment with turboprops in the dark.

I haven’t seen a red squirrel since the 1970s in Switzerland, when they were tame enough to run up my trouser leg to take food from my hand. By the way, if you like a good tongue twister try the German word for squirrel Das Eichoenchen!

Re: Hong Kong Queries: G-RDAS, Hong Kong General Aviation

When I get a chance, I will log in to Planebase and see what it shows as being based in HK. It should be possible to filter out the airliners.

Re: Kemble 01/01/2018

I went today. A mighty long way from Kent, especially as the AV8 cafe is closed for repairs, but worth it to see the smart 727, the Chinese 319s, and the sad looking Turkmenistan 717s.
