    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.

    A new load of Italian soldiers arrive at Kvernberget in a Boeing 737 from Air Italy.
    I don't know how many flights Air Italy made so far, I've seen two myself, but for the NATO exercise 'Trident Juncture' there will be 2.000 Italian soldiers arriving via Kvernberget.
    They will be in a camp at Vidflotten/Lesja shooting range, and tons upon tons of equipment and different vehicles has arrived by ship to Åndalsnes and driven up to the camp.
    The Trident Juncture exercise will be the largest NATO exercise in Norway for many decades and will see over 40.000 soldiers from 40 different countries. The core dates are between 25th October and 7th November, when armies, air forces and navies from different countries will "play their war game".

    That is a really great result - hadn't you said it was a Tilt-Shift, I would probably have thought it was a perfectly made DIARAMA (is that the correct word?).

    Playing with tilt-shift again in a picture I took a couple of years back. The long blue building to the left there is the hangar of the local aero club, Møre Flyklubb, where I've been a member since 1983 and still is

    My pleasure, Ralf :-) (The glide slope for runway 25 at Kvernberget is 3 degrees, by the way ;-) )

    Interesting explanation of the PAPI system. I didn't know that before. The same idea as in many lighthouses. Cool.
Working...
