Was during the morning of June 3 bit lucky as within an hour four contrailing airframes crossed the Moon's disk.
If I only had played on Euromillions...

Nice catch of that new paint scheme on the Swiss A340 from DC10MD11.


Here are my shots from the past week, weather has been great - warm and sunny with clear skies... BUT heatwaves/haze keep spoiling my photos :cry: :

Thanks for that. Hmm interesting to see it over here... such a long way from home! I'm guessing it was going to liege as that is one of their Hubs.

SIA 322 9V-SKE with missing flap track fairing.
First of all nice moonshot Skystef :clap:

SIA 322 9V-SKE missing flap track fairing

After reviewing my photos of this morning I discovered that SIA 322 9V-SKE cruising at Fl 380, Heading 270
was missing a flap track fairing on her right wing. She's must have lost it somewhere along the route?

Image

Here a blown up area:
Image

Probably the aircraft was repared or still servicable as on ATCBox she was visible again for the return leg to Singapore.

In case anyone has some more information please share it in this topic.

Regards,

Rob

The missing part of the wing shouldnt be a problem . saw once an EAT 757-200 flying a whole week without that kind of part ...
the aircraft was hit by a highloader at brussels , the part had to be repaired , but the aircraft remained in operation..
