    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.

    Here we go:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    My daughter turn 20 later this year, but you know, in my head she will always be my little girl and I was so happy I was able to give her this gift.
    Just before the pilot called me, we talked about how great it would be if she could come along on a flight. Strange.

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

    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).

    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.

    Thank you for taking us with you on this flight. That was funny hopping between three threads to watch all pictures. Wonderful. I enjoyed all these picture very much.

    Almost like the F16's passing over the fjord sometimes, when you hear them, you are already too late.

    Thanks.
    Oh yes, I remember Værnes Airshow 2014. It was FRØYA on display there ;-)

    Wonderful images... especially of the two big one's: FRIGG and FRØYA.

    One of those were at the same airshow we went to, at Stjørdal, as you surely may remember. Impressive aircraft and the sound ... the sound is just perfect!
