    Lucky you, Sterkoder... it is almost like you had your own private flight.

    When others go to Futura to do their shopping, Sterkoder orders his pilot to fly him to another town to do the shopping. hahahahahaha

    Great shots, off course. Especially love the middle shot with the view of KSU through the windows.

      Oh yes, I had my own private flight.
      But this time I sat in the back seat, because my daughter sat in the right hand seat in the c0ckpit.
      The best Sunday of her life, she said when we landed :-)
      (Just before this particular flight, the pilot called me and asked if I wanted to ride along. So yes, I guess it's lucky me).

    Sounds so great - and I clearly understand how great it was for both of you to spend a day like this!

      Perhaps Alexa listened in to your voice and arranged it... that is, if you have that spying google speaker in your house. I don't, and I will never have.

      But, there has been questions and concerns about ipHONE listening in on conversations. Because sometimes when people opened google, suggestions come up that you were actually going to check.

      I don't have Alexa, and will never ever get it. What exactly is the purpose of this gadget? Crazy! About the iPhone, I have no idea. Guess I will buy an iPhone again.

      Someone is always watching us, whatever we say and whatever we do. Not only users of iPHONE are being spied upon, but users of Huawai too... and probably Samsung too. Our thoughts is money to others.

    A quiet Wednesday afternoon, home from work, dinner and sinking into the good old chair to let the dinner sink in....., then: my ears pick up a new sound directly over my house, inbound Kristiansund airport.
    I jump up, grab the binoculars, and WTF..., pardon my French, here comes WIDERØE with their brand new Embraer E190-E2 reg. LN-WEC.
    My Lowepro photo backpack is always ready, and not knowing what WIDERØE had in mind and how long they intended to be here, I put my shoes and jacket on, grabbed my bag and drove like only a planespotter in a hurry could.
    When I arrived at the airport, "half the city" was there and I picked up info that WIDERØE use Kvernberget airport for crew training on this aircraft today, and after making 10-12 approaches and touch and goes, they flew back to Gardermoen.
    I also got to use my 450mm lense on a CHC Helicopter Service Sikorsky S-62, the Kvernberget ATC tower, a SAS Boeing 737-800 in from Gardermoen and a WIDERØE Dash-8 coming in from Bergen.

        I can't help, but this new aircraft looks like it is pregnant...

          I guess it has something to do with the plane not being a wide-body, but there are still need for space for the fuel, fuelsystem, ventilation and what not in that belly.
          Anyway, I uploaded a few pictures so that I got them on my iPhone, and whenever I use pictures from the phone, I also add a few effects.
          Now, I would guess this angle make it look pregnant then?


          And here are two more, with some HDR and so on in them




          Pictures via Photobucket this time, as Flickr is down for maintenance. Am I the only one paying for the bucket, I wonder?

            I like all these photos a lot, and I also liked reading the introduction and, as vividly as in any video, could absolutely imagine you hearing the plane, realising what it was, jumping up, and excitedly heading out! It seems difficult for me to be able to get those sort of spontaneous moments these days (at least locally - I did manage to rapidly get across to Norway last year at the first mention of Hansteen’s voyage! )

            And btw you are not the only one paying for the Photobucket.

              Thank you, Cecilia for this comment. Just to add to your imaginary video, Sigrun didn't understand much and the last thing she heard was: -WTF! (Don't need to spell those letters out I guess).
              Well, when I first got my digital camera, and for sure after the Pentax came into my life, I was rather spontaneous..., almost every day. Now, I can count month in between.
              But as we have only Boeing 737, Dash-8 and Sikorsky S-92 on a daily basis, every new sound sharpen my senses.
              Glad I drove to the airport, because it gave me over an hour worth of getting back the old planespotter feeling, and I got to meet up with fellow spotters I haven't talked to in months, some in years.
              We have someone shooting approaches here today too, but the ceiling is down to 300 feet in fog, so they are not visual. From the sound, it appears to be RNorAF with a C-130 Hercules.

            The images of post 186 is all three really excellent, especially the first one. Are all these taken with iPHONE?

            If so, wow! These are brilliant.

            Believe it or not, but I still haven't seen these new Wideroe aircraft with my own eyes yet.

              After a short sms-message from someone I know in ATC at Kvernberget airport, I got time to drive a few hundred meters from my office to nearby the airport, and also change my lense to the Pentax 150-450mm.

              First, the Piper Pa-28-181 Cherokee Archer II from the local aero club came, but that was not what the message was about...
              ​​​​​​IMGP4946 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              The plane I once flew when my pilot license was still valid, LN-NPO. This aircraft came to Kristiansund brand new in 1980, and after being with two other clubs (Oslo Pilot Center and Nedre Romerike Aero Club), it is now back with Møre Flyklubb here. The circle is unbroken.
              ​​​​​​IMGP4947 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              Then, as the small Piper were still on the runway, the aircraft in the message from my friend came in on long final for a low approach.
              Two Lockheed C-130J Hercules (named "Idunn" and "Frigg") from RNoAF 335 sqn. at Gardermoen.
              ​​​​​​IMGP4951 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              ​​​​​​IMGP4952 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              ​​​​​​IMGP4956 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              The Hercules came in very fast, and combined with a handheld heavy camera/lense, I slightly cut the outer tip of the wing. To present a decent picture, I decided to crop so you know the cut is done in purpose
              ​​​​​​IMGP4957 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              "Frigg" looks kind of silvery although she's all air force grey. The reason is that she's flying almost into the sunlight and became rather dark and shadowy. I added a few % HDR.
              (I don't use Photoshop or Lightroom, so I have no means of making a specified shadow area brighter).

                Impressing catches. Don't care about that corner of the wing. I could almost hear the motor sound. But i never heard two of them at the same time, so it is hard to imagine. But for sure veery impressing!

                  Thanks, Ralf :-)
                  You know, the initial cut of the wing was just a millimeter or two, and that is worse than cutting/cropping like I finally did, all the way into the outer engine ;-)
                  It's like a "Dutch Angle" or "Dutch Tilt" in photography, where a camera is tilted to make a dramatic effect.
                  If one want to use Dutch Angle, do not under-do it, over-do it so that the viewer know that it is on purpose, not because the photographer don't see that the picture is tilted ;-)

                  Yes, to be an almost professional photographer is stressfull. You have to be sure, that others don't look at you as an amateur. In my case, i am just enjoying an impressing picture and have no meaning of the intense work to look after all these important details. Thank you for sharing.... even if there was one more beautiful picture on FB, which you did not share here: The planes seen from the back!

                  I agree with you, Ralf.
                  Most times it is not necessary to tell all the details behind a photo, but out there (not first and foremost in here at CVF, because in here, we all know the concept of taking photos) some place is someone who belive that to take a picture, takes only the time the shutter is in use...., mostly 1/500 of a second.
                  (And that is also why most people are not willing to pay for a picture).
                  So I thought, why not reveal some info connected to my photos, beforehand,
                  You know, the wing was cut only by a mm or two, and that looked bad. Cutting it by several meters, all the way into the engine nacelle makes it look normal, or at least like it was supposed to be and done deliberately ;-)
                  But that's me. Some times I enjoy telling the story behind, sometimes I don't care to.
                  (And MRK!: Telling the story behind does NOT have anything to do with any of the members at CVF in a way that I belive any of you need to be told, it is just for whoever read it. It could be a guest, it could be anyone. I know I use to look for "things" in a photo, I use to think about how and why, but that is just out of interest and curiosity, perhaps to learn and be a better photographer myself ;-) ).

                Not often you see two of that kind in the air at the same time. NICE

                  No, it's not.
                  Take a look at #174, and you'll see what they look like together on ground :-)
                  It was "Frigg" then also, but "Frøya" instead of "Idunn".
