Jean-Yves: the backgrounds of the photos you linked are very obviously different from Patrick's photo as well as each other. Additionally, Patrick's photo is of a F/A-18E Super Hornet, first flown in the 2020 season. The photos linked are clearly of the older F/A-18A. Is it surprising that others have photographed this part of the routine in previous years?

The FG-1D, built by Goodyear, is powered by a P&W R-2800 engine. The F2G-1 & -2 was powered by a P&W R-4360 engine, and this variant was the 'Super Corsair'. I sadly saw an F2G crash at the 1994 Phoenix Air Races - pilot got out OK.

I'm thinking the squadron called out was a typo. It was probably VP-67, the reserve squadron from NAS Memphis, they flew P-2s till the late '70s. The were in P-3As when I got NATTC Memphis in the fall of 1979.

Fantastic shot! TAP's livery looks amazing on the A330neo imho.

I agree wholeheartedly William. Those were the days when passengers dressed to look their best. Nowadays pajamas and flip flops are the norm.

I am right there with you vis-a-vis the B757, aka the Seven-Rocket-Seven. Gone too

Easily one of the top ten (maybe top five!) liveries to ever grace an airliner.

@Diana Rose
Here is some info that I have gleaned over the years. The particulars are borrowed
from the Los Angeles VFR Terminal Area Chart.
There are several special ATC routes that pass close to KLAX, but there are
specifically two that can provide a private pilot (and pax) in their Cessna et. al.
with spectacular "up-close" views of ops at KLAX. All of these routes fly southeast
to northwest.

First is named the "Mini Route". This is VFR only and is restricted to "non-turbojet
aircraft only". This route will take you over the numbers of KLAX rwy 24L at 2500 feet. This route is subject to ATC clearance.

Second is named the "Los Angeles Special Flight Rules Area". This too will take you over KLAX, and is not subject to ATC authorization. This route is also restricted to
"non-turbojet aircraft only", and "Maximum Indicated Airspeed shall not exceed
140 knots". Aircraft heading southeast are restricted to 3500 feet, and northwest
bound aircraft are restricted to 4500 feet.

It's well-known that Singapore is meticulously squeaky clean (or at least tries hard
to be so).
It's logical to think that their Air Force aircraft would be also!

sorry there @Greg; the CORS type entry on FA is entirely misleading giving a blueprint model number as an a/c type (V-166) -- the given F4U is more accurate and the F2G would be even more precise.

Yes, reminds me of the days when jet travel was respected and people were proud to be part of the list of passengers that were flying to and fro in such luxury…

Nice plane at air shows! From a military point of view it's not a practical aircraft. Fuel load vs. payload vs. runway length needed to get off ground effect and be able to go any distance. And no air refueling ability. Still a beautiful plane!

Written on 23.10.2021 by Robin Rebhan

Also they probably use them for show since Singapore's not a hot bed of conflict lately.

This is sort of confusing. VP-56 transitioned from SP-2H's to P-3B's in 1968 after they transferred to Pax River from Norva and then went on to the P-3C in 1969.
I know the P-2's were long gone before 1973 because in 1970 I was in Pax River in VP-8 in the next hangar over from them. So I'm curious as to the real story behind this photo.

I flew that plane '74-'77.

I’m pretty sure this aircraft was stationed at Zweibruecken AB (ZR) in the early 1980’s. If so, I worked on it’s inertial navigation system (INS), among other systems. Nice to see it again.

"Mriya" is Ukrainian for "dream," because it's a dream that this thing can even fly!

Yes, gloss paint. PITA for getting a sharp focus, especially at slow shutter speeds like this. 1/60th.
