AN-124 at Trondheim Værnes Airport

Like my previously shared image (and here), here are a couple of additional images I have FINALLY managed to edit and prepare. I must say, I have lagged behind at too many tasks this year. The days are just too short to get everything done, and when I plan to do something, you can almost guarantee that something else comes in the way. 

And as if that is not enough, I might be offline for a good two months as well starting quite soon. Perhaps that was the best incentive I could find, to finish cleaning up images and other files on my desktop? 

At occasions I have to admit that I don’t know whether I should discontinue my website and blog or not, but then, I keep on catching myself posting again. It’s like a rollercoaster, not as wild perhaps, but with it’s up’s and down’s.

Anyway, here are some more images from the day when the Antonov took off from Trondheim at the end of January. Oh, because it was delayed, the wait for the aircraft to take off was long, and as the cold wind increased, I almost gave up waiting a few times. I was freezeing cold, I had no idea how long to wait, and I thought of a couple of warmer places to be. But, I prevailed, and was rewarded with an amazing take off. The only pity I think, is that it lasts just a few seconds, perhaps as long as two minutes, and then, the aircraft is just “a prick in the sky” and out-of-sight. I also learned (again) why it’s a great idea two have two camera-bodies in situations like this: needless to say, there is absolutely no time to change lenses from a telezoom to wide angle and back to telezoom in the short window of the actual take-off. 

I plan to share some more images in the CaptainsVoyage Forum in a couple of days time as well. 

UPDATE: All images posted to page 14 and 15 of the Trondheim Airport Værnes / Hell Airport thread on CVF.
