    Nice videos indeed - must be a wonderful feeling having the opportunity to be a passenger on such a flight!

    I enjoyed looking at all these planes - but really liked the Bombardier Dash-8-Q200. It looks like it means business....

    The most beautiful when one has the instrument rating on the pilot license, is when you climb into the clouds and come out on top. Here's a video showing just that, as we fly towards Ålesund.
    This is from about 6.500 feet above the Atlantic Road

    Yes, the climate has changed many times over the past centuries and eons. But as the world's population has vastly increased over the eons, the stress has also increased for large populations. In the late 19th century an explorer was disappointed to find no snow or ice on Greenland. That is not long ago. I agree that the planet would have managed in the past quite adequately "without us". We have taken away from the earth far more than we have ever given back.

    Well, someone is talking about 'global warming', but that is unknown to us up here.
    Yes, I know, we're talking global, so statistically it might be correct. Though, it grew trees on Greenland before, CO2 levels were higher and it was a lot warmer in general before, thousand of years ago.
    The climate swing, it has its ups and downs, there has been more ice on the poles, there has been a lot less and none.
    My approach is to try to be a better person in the way I waste and to take one day at the time.
    Anyway, if we look upon the human time on this planet like a watch, the life as "we" know it, from I guess the h o m o sapiens, was only been here from 11:55. So think about how long the globe has managed without "us"

    I have not long come back from Norway where I did my 6th round voyage on Lofoten. Mostly dark, reasonably bright Aurora, but I loved Kirkenes,with Lofoten ploughing neatly through the solid ice layer in the harbour. There was heavy snow shortly after we moored so almost every photo was marred with white dots and bumps. Now I read that mainland Europe was/is freezing but the Arctic is frying. (Figuratively) Climate anomalies will only become more erratic I suspect.

    You're welcome.
    The other method of leasing is of course dry-lease, where a company lease aircraft only

    Photobucket is gone for me, when it comes to third party use of my pictures. So, here's the B&W Pilatus picture reuploaded

    Great new additions - glad you found time to update and refresh this thread!

    Thanks also for the explanation of wet lease - my days are now filled with a lot of aviation and aviation-related studies, but I hadn't gotten to the chapter on we-lease yet.

    Long time since we've had something from Kvernberget airport in Kristiansund. Since all my Photobucket images are long gone, I guess it's time to start filling this thread up again.
    Here are a few from Friday and we see a couple of Bombardier (former DeHavilland) Dash-8 from Widerøe, one for Bergen and one for Stavanger. In the middle we see a Bombardier CRJ-900 from Scandinavian Airlines bound for Gardermoen/Oslo.

    It say SAS all over, but actually this is an aircraft on wet-lease from City Jet in Ireland. Wet-lease of cource means that SAS rent everything from plane to crew.

    That last image, the B&G one really stands out as an exceptional image. Well done, Sterkoder!

    Oh, I love the Pilatus PC-12. One of my favorites right along with the Dash 8. My big thought is the Dash 8 should have a horn to beep and get the slow moving ATR's out of their way.
Working...
