    Landing at Tromsø airport is always a fantastic experience, Dane. Perhaps most amazing if there is a low cloud layer, from which you emerge and from the window see only water which you are convinced you are going to end up in . . . but then suddenly there is the end of the runway and you’ve landed!
    I have had the very same experience coming in for landing at Værnes Airport Trondheim...

        Excellent photos of the impressive location of the runway, Asimut.

        Somewhat OT, but may I point out those aerial dishes that can be seen centre of the second photo behind the blocks of flats. This is KSAT, one of the ground stations for the receiving of data from polar orbiting satellites. There is now a similar facility in Svalbard which due to its more northerly location has increased coverage of the satellite passes.
        Although I have not visited this facility, there is a pleasant walk (I think it may be a ski trail in wintertime) around the perimeter of the site. I will look out some photos for the Tromsø thread when I have time.

            On the Tromsø thread, I’ve posted some photos of a walk around the perimeter path shown on the above view #229, along with some of the nearby lake Prestvannet which is seen on Asimut’s photos in #227 above.

              It's not every day you can see no less than three different types of Antonov aircraft here in Tromsø! Nordavia (former Aeroflot-Nord and Arkhangelsk Airlines) Antonov An-24RV RA-46651 takes off in the background. On the ground two visitors that came with equipment to the music festival Døgnvill which took place here in Tromsø early this month. The aircraft are Antonov An-12BP UR-CFB from "AeroVis" Airlines LTD from Ukraine and Antonov An-26B YL-RAA from RAF Avia based in Riga, Latvia.



              Here are some more pictures of these birds:

                  In the above image, I think this might indicate that the aircraft originated as a military aircraft. I remember this device from the aircraft museum in Bodø: two machine guns protruding out of the double-tracks.

                  Here is an image I took of another image at the museum:

                    Pakarang, that is correct. The aircraft is c/n 6343802 and is built in 1966 and flew with Soviet/Russian Air Force as "02 Red" until 2005/6. Was registred as UR-CFB with Aero "Vis" Airlines LTD in October 2006. The smaller AN-26B (c/n 11206) had its first flight in July 1981 and has been operating since 13/8-1981 as CCCP-26064 (then RA-26064 from June 1993). From 18/12-1997 as YL-RAA with RAF Avia in Latvia. Nordavia An-24RV had its first flight in January 1974 and has been operating as CCCP-46651 from 22/2-1974 and then RA-46651 from 22/2-1994.
                    Thank you very much for your kind comments regarding my pictures!

                        ....
                        Viking Air? Now, that is a new airline I had never heard of before.

                          hi jan, the travel agents in Jersey hire this plane every year to take jersey people direct to sorrento and back. I guess it is a charter plane .

                            Viking Airlines

                            Viking is (was?) a Swedish charter airline.
                            They lost their AOC (Air Operator's Certificate) this fall.
                            But, their Greek subsidiary continue operating.
