Default AUH planespotting because I nothing else going on

If the planes are using 13 for arrivals/31 for departure, they fly right over my apartment complex. Best time to catch the big guys is early in the morning, like 6AM local early. Etihad is to AUH as American is to DFW. Its their main operating base & world headquarters, so you get more of their birds than any other airline.

Etihad A340





A330




Not sure if this is a A320 or a A319, but this place is lousy wit' em'.


Afternoon shots came out much better, but the prevailing winds normally mean they are taking off in the other direction, so getting afternoon arrival shots are rare.

Ish, try Conexis. They are a MX outsourcing company with a base in DXB and BAH and pretty much all over the middle east. They have a flying mech. position.
I fly the 747 for Atlas and those guys ride on us all the time. The live , work and play in DXB !! :-)
I believe the company pays for their accommodation and the schedule is 2 months on 1 month off with a ticket home during that month.
I just hung out with one of the guys in Hong Kong. He operated as the flying mechanic from DXB to HKG and then back via Europe. I hear the money is good as well. Plus being a single guy in DXB isn't so bad.
