Summer here we come!!

It's still not summer but it's warm enough to finally spend half a day doing nothing but photographing aircraft!!! Looking forward to when it will actually reach the 30s, it's going to be 21 today!!

Etihad Airways - Toronto-Abu Dhabi- Karachi (December 2011)

In December 2011, I was fortunate to find a really cheap fare to go and spend Christmas with family. Thank you Etihad for yet another great trip, at a really good price!!

You can read the more detailed version here:

Third Time's a Charm! Etihad Airways (YYZ-AUH-KHI)

Here are some photos and for the very first time videos from the trip :). Don't forget to watch in 720p (but it's not really that sharp though)

Washroom with a view

Back in my seat and enjoying the view as we fly over Turkey!!

Added some tranquil music to match the equally tranquil view outside!!It was majestic to say the least!

Flying over Iraq.

Entering the Persian Gulf

Descending into Abu Dhabi - Notice at the end of the video the little girl crying for her grandfather (seated across the aisle)

I had to actually edit the audio in this video to remove completely the little girl's crying which had now turned to screaming :(. She was well behaved though for the entire flight! We were flying downwind before our left hand turn to establish finals with Rwy 31L

Finally the final approach to Rwy 31L, and the little girl had calmed down by then

Fantastic crew of EY 140!!
