Coming in to land

Johannesburg International Airport (Oliver Tambo) is around 15 kilometers West from our spot and although we see aircraft overheard on a daily basis, such as this Air Namibia plane,

or small aircraft such as these …

seeing them land is another matter. All the commercial airliners use the same approach path to Jo’burg International and just by chance I was looking West as this late afternoon Emirates flight began its final descent. If you enlarge the shot, you can see the undercarriage is down and the flaps too!

      1. sounds like it is much shorter and weighs a lot less than the old canon zoom lens I had, it was like 8-10 inches long ( not sure now but seemed huge and heavy.) and took a lot of strength to hold up. I had a canon A-1 with lots of gadgets I got in Germany. I gave up on it as soon as digital came out. Hugs

        1. It weighs hardly anything at all.
          I also have an old Olympus OM10 with a Tokina 300mm telephoto. Aside from the weight, the cost of developing film is way too prohibitive these days.

          1. I understand. I dug the old camera out and found it still had film in it, not any good I bet. The camera was a great one for its day, expensive also. Funny story why I bought it. I was stationed in Germany. I went with a friend to some towns and took loads of pictures of the cathedrals, tourist sites and all these grand buildings. Tones of pictures, of which only a few outside shots came out. The inside shots were all just dark blobs. I only had an instamatic back then. SO as I was single with no bills, I marched off to the PX and bought the most expensive camera they had with all the gadgets. Then never used it. I use my digitals now more than I ever used the big canon. 🙂 Oh well I was a young kid with little sense. Hugs
