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.

TF- country one week in May

Post by canberra »

Small report from another non-spotting trip this time to Iceland. We were hoping to get a good look at the erupting Eyjafjallajokull volcano but it stopped just hours after we landed. There was still plenty to see and do, and I can only recommend Iceland for a visit! Even if they stole you money :mrgreen:

We had rented an apartment in the centre of Reykjavik and with just a 20-25min walk to Reykjavik Airports GAT terminal it was easy to make an evening round to check on the days nightstops.

First OY-GRG Bombardier DHC-8-202 Air Greenland, he only thing of interest I saw on arrival to KEF. Shot thought glass inside terminal.

TF-MYX Beech B200 Super King Air Myflug Air, RKV arrival photographed while waiting for whale whatching trip.

At the Blue Lagoon TF-FIU was seen on arrival to KEF.

Took a few day before I made my first visit to RKV. After that it became part of the evening routine.
