Long Awaited 747SR-81 ANA Release from J Fox

 The J Fox ANA Boeing 747SR-81 JA8159 Scale 1/200 JF-747-1-005P is a diecast model airplane that replicates the All Nippon Airways (ANA) Boeing 747SR-81 aircraft with the registration number JA8159.

The Boeing 747SR-81 is a short-range version of the Boeing 747-100, designed specifically for high-frequency operation in Japan. It was developed by Japan Airlines and Boeing, and only 45 were ever built.


The ANA Boeing 747SR-81 entered service in 1973 and was retired in 1995. The J Fox ANA Boeing 747SR-81 JA8159 Scale 1/200 JF-747-1-005P model is made of metal and features antennas and other details that are accurate to the real airplane.

NIGHT AT LONDON GATWICK

Photography is a big interest to me and aviation is the one subject I photography. I do get messages asking about my photography and even other spotters when I am there at the airport always take an interest in my camera gear. Likewise all photographers will talk and chat about this, whether it's a Nikon or a Canon. 


This picture was taken at night and handheld with a 150 - 600 Sigma lens and a Canon 5D MKIII. It was around 8pm and of course dark. I was there to get the Scoot 787. These photos I will put up later. The photos are as they came out of the camera with the noise (grain) reduced through Lightroom. What I am trying to say if you're new to photography and I mean with a camera (not a phone) then get out there and try your best. My camera was released in 2012 so other cameras have come out since.



However learn with the camera you have and do not empty your bank account. Buying a better camera is not the answer. Learning to push the camera you have and your new skills is always best. Hope you find this post useful and happy to share my work.

EasyJet's Classic Livery: A Look Back at Gatwick's "Orange Airport"

Many may not remember, but EasyJet's aircraft used to sport a vibrant orange and white livery. These pictures, taken at Gatwick Airport between 2016 and 2018, capture that era. The airline has since transitioned to a new design, but the classic orange scheme holds a special place in my photo collection.


Gatwick Airport even earned the nickname "the orange airport" due to EasyJet's dominance. It's a reminder of how quickly things change in aviation. Here, we see several aircraft in the old livery, some of which have likely been stored, scrapped or repainted by now.


This post serves as a reminder to capture those fleeting moments. While the weather may not be ideal today, putting off photography can lead to missed opportunities.


Looking back on my 50+ years of photography, I started with a simple Kodak Brownie. It wasn't fancy, but it sparked a lifelong passion. Now, in my 60s, I'm revisiting this love and sometimes wonder about I should have taken an alternative paths, like pursuing photography as a career. But hindsight is always 20/20, right?


I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into EasyJet's past at Gatwick.

British Airways Boeing 777 at London Gatwick & Aviation Photos


Today I spent a hour at London Gatwick. Time was not on my side today but had to pop up and see the NEW livery Emirates A380 arrive. I have posted some photos below for you to see. The video is very short so these photos will be better to look at. I do enjoy taking a photograph and have done so for over 50 years.
