    Just for the record, #168/2 is handheld at 450mm, #168/8 is on tri-pod at 450 and then cropped.
    I have no idea when it is the best time for such photos, but I would guess a crisp, clear and dry winter day would do? I have seen such shots much sharper, so I know it's possible :-)

    Wonderful those two aircrafts at cruising.... those are truly hard shots to make. I have tried soooo maaaannnyyyy times, even with a 1200mm lens.

    They always turn out just like this.... all that moist air between camera and aircraft does it's work really well in making it hard to get a sharp focus.

    I wonder, are these kinds of shots easier in summertime or wintertime, or does it not matter?

    I would love to get great shots like these... but have tried so many times, and failed.

    And today, AirItaly with EI-FNW was back on Kvernberget airport.
    Yesterday, I got my new 150-450mm lense, so I drove out to test this huge apparatus

    Not specially proud of this one, and as it's taken at 450mm, it is also slightly cropped. But if one think positive, it's almost possible to see the A6-ETG registration

    Wonderful, Sterkoder. As you perhaps guess, SAS is currently my favourite airline.

    From what I have come to learn, their environmental profile, their ethics and their visions are well within my own thoughts of what a perfect company is.

    I like it - worth the trip!

    The lights in the background looks like twinkling stars... there is a slight "Christmas"-feeling to that image!

    We think alike when it comes to large military cargo planes :-)

    Drove up to the airport tonight, but soon found out I'd better drive to Mellemverftet in Vågen. Only one from Kvernberget tonight.

    Love the Hercules (and the Globemaster).... the sound of these aircrafts are like music in the ears of people with an interest in aircrafts. Like me.

    When i have something like this , i think of what it cost to repair, and when the whatever it is, is further okay, do i get a new one for the price of repair.
    If not and i'm still happy with the old one i let it repair.
    If correct a new camera.is 35.000krone ,which would be about 3660euro.
    Pff a lot of money.
    When repair is 1000euro and the camera is further okay, i had made my chose.
    Specialy i don't sell any image,so i can't make money with it.

    Well, I've had some problems with the lense K-mount for a while also. It might not be that I want to spend any money on an expensive repair.
    I guess it's about time I step up a notch and go for the K-1 II full-frame. But with a 28-105mm lense, it would set me back almost NOK 35.000,- or maybe more.

    Maybe send it back for a repair.
    And hope it can be repaired for a few krone.
    Lets hope on a wonder

    Thank you

    These are some of the last pictures from my Pentax, because last Saturday, while walking the streets of Trondheim in the worst rain I have experienced for a long time, the K-5 II died.

    I've tried to give it new life by placing it on the heated bathroom floor and on top of an electric radiator, but no...., I guess it will not come to life again.

    Very nice images Sterkoder. Strange nobody has already recognised these images, because they are superb.

    That Air Italy aircraft certainly has a really long and interesting history behind:

    It has even served in Malaysia Airlines at some point.

    The Sea King first flew 7th May 1969 and Westland Helicopters at Yeovilton produced it up until 1995. The type entered service in Norway in 1973, where the Justice Dept. own 12 helicopters operated by RNoAF 330 squadron. The bases were originally Bodø, Banak, Ørland and Sola, but one was operated out of Rygge from 1999 and one from Florø since 2009.
    To replace the Sea King in 2020, we will have the Augusta-Westland AW101 Merlin.
