    A Scandinavian Airlines Boeing 737 about to land on RW07 at Kristiansund Airport Kvernberget this Sunday afternoon.
    Did not have any time to set anything on my camera, so this is as 'Auto' as an image can be, hence the cut wings, as I also didn't have time to adjust the zoom.

    I like the composition in that last image?

    Going for the upgraded version? That was a new twist...

    Sitting here going through my photofiles. It might be that I change my mind, but now...., looking at my old pictures, thinking about the easy handling and the comfort of my old camera, I might buy myself the upgraded and much better FinePix S1500 tomorrow. Time will show.
    Here's an old image of a B737 from the former airline Braathens SAFE landing at Kvernberget 21st April 2004. Good memories..., almost nostalgia

    Not exactly aircrafts in the link below, but the first arrival of heavy equipment to start the lengthening of the airports runway.
    There will be a movement of 2,3 million m3 rock, when they turn a small hill into a base for the new part of the eastern runway.

    Found one more picture at the bottom of the drawer, a DC-6 reg. G-APSA of the former Air Atlantique at Kvernberget in February/March 1994.
    This and the companies DC-3 were frequent visitors those days, as they flew in parts to the oil industry...

    Heres a RDaAF Gulfstream III at Kvernberget in late 1990s, or early 2000. I honestly don't remember. It's parked next to a Dornier Do-228 from the German Navy/Marine

    I was so inspired by Jan-Olavs close-up picture of a passing Boeing 737 at Trondheim Airport, that I felt I wanted to look into my albums and see if I got something similar.
    I had two close-ups of a Boeing 737, so old that it's in fact of a Braathens SAFE one, at Kvernberget Airport in Kristiansund. No pilots here though, as it's parked at Stand #1 for a later take-off.

    Picture taken from the ground level


    Next one taken a little higher


    Then a different 737 from Braathens at Stand #1 (Wonder what goes through the mind of that captain sitting in the stairs reading a bricklike manual: "Holy...., what was THAT button again!!???!!?" )


    Finally, as a memory of much better weather and summertime, a Tarom Boeing 737 on a charter to Romania....


    ....spotted here by its own captain

    (Taking the picture from there, he will get the sign with the airport- and city name in the background of his airplane, so I guess that's why he did it).

    Yeah, I guess you could say that
    You know, there are much more activity than I'm able to inform about. I'm out hunting down boats and ships....
    But seriously, there are lot's of flights in and out of Kvernberget, and in terms of movement we are the largest airport in the county with about 8.000 a month.
    The key words of course are OIL and GAS.

    You get a lot of activity in Kristiansund. Much more than I would expect for a town that size.

    Kvernberget airport had a visit today of a BAe 146 AVRO RJ-100 from Atlantic Airways. It flew in from Faeroe Islands before noon and returned around 2:00PM. Don't know what it did here though...






    Then a couple of Sikorsky S-92 flew out to different oilrigs

    Very cool. I do not think I have ever seen a Electra in person. I will have to keep my eye out when I head to Central America later this summer. I bet there might be one sitting on the tarmac down there.

    A civilian Orion, the Lockheed Electra, is not something we see every day here in Kristiansund.
    This one came as a surprice to me when sitting in my office working on som papers. I just took a quick look out the window and saw black smoke far out on the final to runway 07.
    I rushed to my locker and grabed my bag to get my camera, rushed back to open a window and turn the camera on.
    Just got these pictures in the nick of time
    The Electra belongs to the new company growing from the remains of the Air Atlantique. They were often here at Kvernberget before, flying parts to the oil industry with their DC-3s and DC-6s This is the most interesting aircraft Atlantic Airlines can present today....
