Re: Nord est Italy Spring Summer tour......

Thanks, awesome photos - very interesting! I had not known that the CFS had ceased to exist and became part of the Carabinieri!! I was already thinking that they look awfully similar to CFS AB412s!! :) Where did you see all the S208Ms? I have never seen them with these nose markings but then again, ...

My guess is too slow a shutter speed ( 1/100th at ISO 100) for an aircraft that is approaching towards the camera?

[CIV] Wellington Airport (WLG/NZWN) 30.12.2019

As RNZAF Ohakea was a bit too far, I went to Wellington airport with the idea of trying some new spots (for me), in particular using the surrounding hills to get some top-down shots, especially of the Air Chathams Convair 580 on its usual Monday and Friday schedule.

They may fly ...

Let's see.... we could purchase an off-the-shelf, proven product that is already in service with various air forces around the world and has matured into a fully operational platform.
