Good morning from South East Asia. After 25 hours of traveling, I've arrived in Singapore. The second leg of the flight was relatively smooth and uneventful. ANA Flight 901 on 767-300ER JA615A took about seven and a half hours. The aircraft was sporting a 777 signature interior including a nose camera. Our departure from NRT was delayed about forty-five minutes because of a failure in some section of the Tokyo datalink communications system. I spoke with the pilots after the flight who said that as a result, ATC was spacing flights six minutes apart.
Upon landing, I was able to spot one of the two SIA A380s as well, it stands out like a 470 passenger sore thumb. More pictures of her later.
It's a toasty 24 degrees Celsius here with 94% humidity right now, so the air show should be quite, er...warm when it gets to a high of 33. For those on the other side of the planet, that's about 92 degrees.
I'll be heading to the show this morning and I should have full wireless connectivity. I'll be posting photos from my iPhone directly to the blog throughout the day and have several interviews scheduled.
I'm here in Singapore for you, so tell me what you want to see and hear. I have a digital audio recorder with me and we'll be producing podcasts throughout the week. If there's a question you want asked to one of the companies here, let me know. Airplane detail you'd like to see, don't hesitate to ask. I want to give you the air show experience too.
