    Re: Trondheim Airport Værnes / Hell Airport...

    Thanks

    The first location is on a rampart nearby hangar 5 inside the Garnison.
    My friend has access and could bring me along. Maybe you know him, because he also "lived" inside there long time ago.
    His name is Per Einar

      Re: Trondheim Airport Værnes / Hell Airport...

      Well, I "lived" at Værnes Air Station 30 years ago, and my "employer" was the tech. dept. at Hangar 5 RNoAF Pilot School.
      I left ages before it became a Heimevernet Garnison.
      But of course, if he also stayed there in 1981-82 and is about 48-49 years of age, I might've walked pass him at the station canteen some time.
      Anyway, memories...., memories.
      (My year in the RNoAF is certainly one I would like to relive, if I could...., and with a digital camera this time).

        You have no idea how jealous I am.... that day I so badly wanted to be there too.... this is a rare event, very rare to have a 747 on Værnes, and even more rare to have 2 of them at the same time + an Airbus 321.

        Off course, I have to be on duty when something happens... some things never change.

        But, S, thank you so much for capturing these awesome shots and for helping me on trondheimsfjorden.net

          Thank you so very much for coming to visit me there at the ferry, I appreciated your visit very much!

          Awesome shots of the aircrafts of that day.... love the smoke from the brakes of the 747. Nothing like coming close to a 747.... a massive and very impressive aircraft.

            and even more rare to have 2 of them at the same time
            Not that I will turn around the knife (as we say in Norway) or anything, but I must remind you there were three (3) B-747s at the same time
            (I only had time for the first two).

            Now, listen to this, my friend:
            You'll have two more chanses to experience all this, as the Pullmantur show comes to Værnes again 2. June and 16. June.
            (There's a so good spread in those dates that you MUST have to be off duty at least one of those days? )

            But, S, thank you so much for capturing these awesome shots and for helping me on trondheimsfjorden.net
            My pleasure entirely!!! Trust me....

                  I have no idea where I will be that day... it'll be during my summer holiday... and so far, I have no plans for any trips.... unless, I'm invited to spend my holiday in some exotic place...

                  But thank you, the date is marked down!

                                That Falcon 2000, OY-CKI..., I see it has the Reitan Group logo on the tailfin there.
                                Nice photos all of them, and I often think back to that day in May when I was lucky enough to get two of the Jumbos
