This weekend was not very conducive to spotting. The winds came out of the west making the active runway at Bengaluru International Airport 27. With an east west alignment, the only time to take pictures is in the late afternoon when the sun has moved to the west.
In the process of exploration, I discovered that Google maps is outdated and the road from Singahalli to Devanahalli has been replaced by the airport. With a couple of die-hard friends the never say die trio did some exploration and found a spot at the edge of runway 27, but the light was fading fast, thanks to the late hour and the rain clouds in the vicinity.
Some fruits of our labour for your enjoyment. Please do post a comment with your thoughts.
IndiGo Airbus A320 VT-INQ on short finals to runway 27. Caught the flight crew leaned forward and peering over the nose to land the aircraft. Click on the picture for a high resolution view. Don’t over look the passengers peeking out of the window.
Also pictured (L-R) : Boeing 737-800s of Jet Airways VT-JGN and Oman Air A4O-BC, both equipped with the Aviation Partners winglets on take-off from runway 27. Golden rays of sunshine peeking through the rain clouds.
At dusk after the sun set, one of Jet Airways newer Boeing 737-800 VT-JBC and one of Kingfisher’s oldest Airbus A320 VT-ADW of the erstwhile Air Deccan.
I recommend visiting Planespotters for mine and other great aviation pictures.
