    Nice to see that Hangar 5 still stands and also that grey building behind, where we crew chiefs at the RNoAF Pilot School had our crew-room.
    That room was behind that window closest to that 737 winglet, and was my working place for 9 good months...

          Oh, and I know I’ve seen it before, but I must say how much I like the ship outline logo next to the forum and name - especially on an art style image like this one.
          And as for that ****pit close up in #47, I almost feel I’m in there – that is an awesome spotting place you’ve found!

            I've posted some pictures from an airshow at Trondheim Airport further up on this page. From my dive in the archives and scanning this afternoon, here's some more.
            The Piper Grasshopper


            DC-3 of Dakota Norway


            SAAB 91 Safir from Sweden


            Waco bi-plane


            USAF A-10


            Braathens SAFE Boeing 737 (Oh, how I miss seeing that livery today!)


            The airshow had to set some limits to the flying display, as the rainy clouds came lower and lower.


            I wrote earlier that it was nice to see Hangar #5 at Værnes again in one of Jan-Olavs pictures.
            Here's Big-S as a RNoAF crew chief with the Safir and Safaris on line in front of H.5 in 1981 (Sorry if I interrupt your thread, J-O)

              I so wish I could hear and feel the sound and power of a DAKOTA some day!

              And for the Braathens SAFE original livery: I miss it too... so much.

              A bit OT but do you remember what SAFE in Braathens actually means?

                When I was a small boy, not knowing much about the airlines, I thought Braathens must've been something of the SAFEst you could fly with.

                Then I finally found out that it was short for:
                South-African and Far-East airtransport

                The background for that, was that the shipping man and ship owner Ludvig G. Braathen built his own airline to fly parts and ship crews to his own fleet in those part of the world. (Well, at least that is the small part of the trouth...).

                        At some 35000 feet above Trondheim, an Emirates flight and an Aeroflot flight:

                          I think a passenger in the third row is waving.

                              I was more worried about the flap setting on the tale: it seems as not necessary for that altitude. Naturally, it could be a problem with the autopilot setting since the plane seems to be pulling to the left.

                              I knew that too, but I didn't dare to reveal MY secret identity! Back at'ya!

                                Today, I had much excitement in Trondheim: being able to spot some aircrafts which passed - literally - above the roof of my apartment: the skies was littered with passing aircrafts and their trails.



                                The two side by side are, leading the race is Qatar Airways Boeing 777 tightly followed by a Boeing 767 from United Airlines (forgot from where they came and where they were heading):
