Turkmenistan Airways, the flagship carrier of Turkmenistan, today at the Paris Air Show, announced a growth in their long haul operations. They will be doing this by adding a fourth Boeing 777-200LR aircraft to their fleet. The commitment is reported to be valued at $346.9 million USD at list price.
Hey All, I hope you have enjoyed the past 99 photos I’ve uploaded. For my 100th post which also falls on my Birthday! I thought I’d do something different.
I wanted to introduce myself and put a face behind my photography and also tell you a little about myself! I’ve been spotting since 2007 at the time I was 17 years old at Gold Coast Airport. Since then, I have taken thousands of photos spotting at different places around the world. Before I go through the questions you guys asked me a couple of weeks ago on my story I’d like to make a few shout outs. Firstly to my Girlfriend @sabrinabreci thanks for being so supportive and getting up at 3am some morning just to get that plane I need a photo of.
My parents, without them this wouldn’t be possible from driving me around to the airport when I was younger and without a license.
Anyone who has played a part of spotting in my life (tagged below) I hope I haven’t missed anyone.
Finally, thanks @timbowrey26 bowrey26 for being the best spotting buddy, without you half of my shots would not have been possible from being the taxi in Sydney to being the insider. I look forward to many more memories!
The photos in this post are shots from over the years. Enjoy!

Si ese avión despega y no estás con él lo lamentarás.
