I have been promoted at work and as a result I am a lot busier and doing less flying :( so this is 3 reports in one. I am sorry that the quality of most of the images is poor but I tok most of them from inside the cabin, and you know how bad cabin windows are for photography!! We flew to Maseirah in Oman via Bahrain Intl. as we arrived a managed to get a shot of the parking ramp, quite a mixed bag there... http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/2041/12yh1.jpg As we taxied toward the terminal it became apparent that Gulf Air are having an identity crisis... http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/4976/27sg.jpg I then sat at the rear service door and managed a few shots of departing aircraft http://img417.imageshack.us/img417/6538/30br.jpg http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/4140/45dr.jpg http://img321.imageshack.us/img321/464/54va.jpg http://img118.imageshack.us/img118/7119/66mz.jpg http://img321.imageshack.us/img321/9923/74py.jpg Passing over the UAE I took a shot of Al Ain airport http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/9906/87ou.jpg When we arrived in Maseirah it was shut, one helicopter and a strikemaster :( http://img332.imageshack.us/img332/5295/98up1.jpg Then back to Bahrain and on to Muscat, and guess what, nothing interesting there either, two RAF Nimrods, a Dash 8 and some RAFO stuff, the entire civil ramp was empty :eek: So I had to resort to the RAFO BAC111 http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/1259/101nl.jpg http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/1080/115oo.jpg The next trip was to Kuwait, again via Bahrain Intl. First up was this dirty beast from Bangladesh http://img319.imageshack.us/img319/6587/121fq.jpg Then to Kuwait, but again it was quiet :( http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/1290/132xe.jpg http://img319.imageshack.us/img319/3262/148qv.jpg http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/8407/158gw.jpg As we taxied out for departure, we were followed by a C17 http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/8738/160hf.jpg Then back to Bahrain and home.
