Let’s go back in time when you were a little kid. Ever had a plane fly by you which got you all excited pointing at it soaring majestically across the sky? Well, I have.
Living near the Penang International Airport a decade ago, made me hear those roaring, thunderous sounds every other day.
I don’t blame him, do you? =P
I arrived Sepang with Wings, Yats and Dale. We were situated atop a hill to shoot the the planes. Click the pictures below for a clearer panoramic view of different angles of the runway
I reckon we were at the back end of the airport, as I saw lotsa cargoes being loaded onto the planes.
But all hope is not lost! All of us relocated from Sepang and went to the front section of KLIA runway. This was that highly restricted and dangerous area I was talking about!
Don’t mess with Mother Nature, she gets cranky at times! Ohwell, if ya can’t get shots of flying planes… shall we settle with flying birds instead?
With a telephoto lens, I was able to get myself a handful of shots that I was pretty pleased with. The rest were – sadly – destroyed shots, exposures gone wrong! It was indeed a challenge for all of us, to shoot fast-moving planes taking off and those in the sky more than 200m away in this temperamental weather.
Check out the planes taking off from the runway –
Apologies, my shot of the FedEx plane really did not do. Anyway, here are some of my successful shots of the other soaring planes :
GMG Airlines from Bangladesh
If you’re Malaysian, I’ll slap you if you don’t recognize this
Oh and thanks to Seet, each of us had a Polaroid shot for ourselves! Shake it like a Polaroid picha yo.
But there’s nothing like a Nikon shot.
Wanna see some proud Nikonians?
This whole experience made me somewhat more intrigued with planes and its aerodynamics. There must be very creative craftsmanship of a plane for it to lift itself thousands of meters above sea level!
All these planes in the 21st century have certainly gone a looooong way since creation of the 1st plane by the Wright brothers.
Imma share with you some useful information I’ve looked up :
MAS plane was slightly nearer for me to get a closer shot
And coincidentally managed to shoot its rear end as well!
I’m proud of our national airlines – aren’t you?
MAS rocks! It was a brilliant idea of having this whole event
