Default B747 Dreamlifter – SWISS MD11

I've seen some members have already posted photos of this model, but there are some pictures of me with a little setup

More breathtaking photos. The Dreamlifter diorama is top notch! I notice that the model says "Operated by Atlas Air." After doing some research on Evergreen International, it seems they operated it before Atlas. Interesting...

Thanks again,

I've read, the 4 completed freighters were initially operated by Evergreen International Airlines. Since mid-2010, the four aircraft operated by Atlas Air (GTI) for Boeing.

Thank you
I took those photos with Canon 5D Mark IV and Canon lens 100mm Macro 2.8 L IS USM but you can use a half-frame camera with a Canon lens Macro 60mm 2.8, you will make also very nice photos with very good quality, if you know how to set the camera.

Thank you, I’m very fine, I don't have to much time, but when I could have time, I will try to photograph the new models. I hope to see you in Vienna again!

Kollege Vandan, wunderschöne Fotos. Hab mich gerad in die SWISS verliebt.

There are some people who post great pics around here, but these photos are astonishing...
Now I have to get the SWISS MD-11, darn you savings...

I was really interested in the Swiss MD-11. Looks amazing in that livery. The only issue I have with that model, is the fact, that this is the one that crashed. Why did JC Wings choose this special registration and not any other with the same livery? Are there any clues, why they chose this one?

And that is the only reason, why I decided not to buy this model. I just don't want to look at that model and always think, that this particular aircraft was involved in that fatal crash

Same goes for me, did not buy it for the same reason.

JC Wings also released Air France 447 (A330-200, F-GZCP).
And there was Condor 3782 (B737, D-ABHD) by Inflight and
TWA 800 (B747, N93119) also by Inflight.

However, personally, I'm not bothered with this. But I can of course understand those who are.

Not to forget 9M-MRO and 9M-MRD, both Malaysia 777s that suffered complete loss of life...

Very nice pic, you have a ‘real’ fuselage B787. Unfortunately I didn't found in the short term the right spare part for the photography.
