A very low Royal Air Force Merlin helicopter past me and Dan's house. By low, I mean about 100 ft above the ground. ;)

Saw a chinook flying over my school the other day. Too far away to get a good picture, but it was my first time seeing one. :D

Gliders, just like every other weekend. :lol:
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

A Singapore Airlines Boeing 777 on final to Changi Airport. It was kinda low, and I could see it quite clearly from the train I was on. Pity I didn't get a photo.

Around 2x 737-2X9 Surveillance aircraft came here around 3 days ago (possibly for search and rescue operations for MH370).

Riding home from a trip with my parents we saw a plane being loaded at KUCY, so we drove up the road going to it and saw Cessna 410. It's the first time I've ever been up the road to that airport, even though I've passed by the north end of the runway on the main road hundreds of times.

I guess nobody has seen any airplanes lately. :shock:

I saw a Gulfstream 5 flying over Jackson, TN, on its way into KMKL. I've never seen a G5 and was shocked at how large it was, even at a pretty good distance.

Well I've been seeing em, it's just been the same thing over and over for 7 years now... 5 - 10x AH-64, 5 - 10x UH-60, 5 - 10x OH-58 and maybe a CH-47 or two... ._.

Almost all planes here in Francisco Bangoy Intl. (DVO-RPMD) is an Airbus A320 :cry: . Just one Boeing (737-800- Owned by SilkAir) flies every Thursday. The good ol' times the planes here were big (My DC-10 flies to my local ARPT, 747s, A340s, even 777s, ATR-72, Dash-8)
I hate my local airport.

Saw a gulfstream IV low. We were about 15 miles from the airport, but it already was at about 500 feet and had flaps deployed.

My mom with her awesome camera was able to get a snap of it.
