Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Very nice set. Where did you take the photo of the A380? Is that the taxiway near the soccerfield at Bonaero Drive by any chance?

Indeed from the fields, was a cool days so not too much heathaze when he made the turn on Taxiway Hotel in the distance.
It seems the Bonaero spot will soon be close to the public I am afraid :(
