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...

As we taxied toward the terminal it became apparent that Gulf Air are having an identity crisis...

I then sat at the rear service door and managed a few shots of departing aircraft

Passing over the UAE I took a shot of Al Ain airport

When we arrived in Maseirah it was shut, one helicopter and a strikemaster :(

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

First up was this dirty beast from Bangladesh
