Pictaero's Screeners' Choice - Monday May 18th 2009

Published on 05-21-2009 by Jumbolino in Screeners' choices | Permanent link | 0 comment(s)

After a long break, the weekly selection is back. Unfortunately plenty of great shots released in March and April won’t be part of the screeners’ choice because there are too many of them and it would be very difficult to select only some of them.

Now, let’s see the selection and begin with commercial aviation. We’ve got some heavies: two Boeing 777-200ER belonging to British Airways and Asiana, one of the two A330-200 operated by XL Airways France, the former French subsidiary of the now defunct XL Group shot during a diversion to Brest-Bretagne Airport and a MD-11 of Martinair.

Representing the short haul aircraft category, we have a TU-134 captured in a quite exotic place by TLaurent.

TU134 – RA-65994

Finally, a PC-12 is also present in the selection. However it is in a weird situation and needs some fixing to get back in the air again.

PC-12 – HB-PVG

As for military aviation, our screeners chose two photos: one of the Swiss Acrobatic Team flying F-5 Tiger and the other of a French Air Force Caravelle. This particular aircraft belonged operated for more than 15 years to ETOM 82 “Maine”, a Tahiti-based squadron in charge of linking Polynesian nuclear sites and performing medevac flights for the islanders. Called TOREA, this aircraft operated side by side with two other Caravelle christened MAIRE NUI and TEVA

F-5 – J-3086 SE210 – F-RBPR

To end this selection, a wonderful sunset. See you next week!!!!

DR315 - F-BRFF
